“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.
