PandoNach ma Kunti Gainda Katha : A story of Rhinoceros in Pando Folk dance

(Garhwali folk Dance Songs, Uttarakhandi Folk Dance- Songs,Himalayan Folk dance-Songs)

Bhishm Kukreti

There are tens ofstory sung at the time of Pando Folk Dance of Garhwal and Kumaun regions byAujees.

There is one very peculiar story of Gainda or rhinoceros inPando folk dance-song of Kumaun and Garhwal.

Kunti, the mother ofPandavas sees a dream that instruct her to bring the skin of rhinoceros for theannual Shradh performance of her husband King Pandu .

Kunti orders five Pandavas to bring the skin of rhinoceros.Pnadavas become ready for bringing the skin of rhinoceros.

In the mean time, Draupadi the wife of all Pandvas alsobecome ready with them to help them in case of

hunger, thirst, rough roads etc. However, Pandavas tell herthat since, she does not have dress and ornaments as a queen should have sheshould not company her.

When Pandvas come toHariyali tal forest, they sees a Sitarami rhinoceros. The rhinoceros was afemale rhinoceros and she tells them that her husband is in Gagal forest.Pandavas goes to Gagal forest and they kill the rhinoceros and bring skin ofrhinoceros for the ritual of Shradh of thei father Pandu as instructed bymother Kunti.

There is contrast inthe story that queen Draupadi becomes ready to share the pain of her husbandsPnadvas and the wife of rhinocerosSitarami tells the secret of her husband’ whereabouts. Here, in the story,there is no mention that Pandavas threatened Sitarami .

The songs havevarious emotions woven into it. There is curiosity for audience whetherPandavas would be successful or not. The sacrifice of Draupadi and thedeceptive nature of female rhinoceros bring different emotions.

The folk song isproof that folk song creator were master of psychology besides being master ofform of poetries.
