This is possibly the best news we’ve heard in years. Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh has decided to redeem human civilisation by creating a 14 meter tribute to Sadhana’s jhumka. Yes the very same jhumka that she sang of in Mera Saya.
We’ve complained before that the world and India particulary is short of women in statuary. While a jhumkar does not make up for that deficit, how great is it to have not another dude on a rearing horse, dude nobly looking off in the middle distance and so forth. Get thee and thine to Bareilly.
PS. Sadhana-ji is not actually wearing a jhumka in this song, is she?
PS. PS Is Jhumkar Gira Re the coolest piece of singing in the sub-genre of Jewellery, Lost? And if a replica of the lost nose-ring of a close contender, Mera Laung Gawacha, was to be immortalised where would it be located?
