When something is not understood, then we tend to convert that as a matter to worship, as we are restless to know the path of the river Saraswati that has vanished, there are searches going on day and night to find the remains of Ram Setu in the sea. It is astonishing that we are not worried about what is present and in the possibility of being invisible. If concerns are surfaced they are only for the show. If these concerns were in reality, rivers like the Ganges, Yamuna do not reach in the present drying conditions. The mountains should have kept away from leveling, the jungles would never become play grounds and the water could have stayed above rather than descended in to the underworld like now.
Virtually all the ingredients or mediums that keep the civilization alive are becoming obsolete and we have closed the eyes. Even our own village lives also have reached the state of being crippled. The sense of humanity has got into a dilemma. After all, collectivity of village, festivity, folk drama and folk music are getting out of our lives and we are in a position of rest. The true culture of man is embedded in its practices, folk dances, traditions, traditional beliefs and folk songs.
As the result of our concern or obsession, that we dreamed of securing the folk songs and then decided to put it in to action immediately. ‘Indian Desi Folk' has started the campaign to connect tradition with new ideas, new energy, new technology and new thinking with modernity. It may be that our authors are like a squirrel who was keeping a straw for Ram Setu and keeping it on the shore of the sea. The existence of that straw was minor in the midst of the large stones, but the contributions to the construction of the bridge in the eyes of Lord Rama were invaluable.
We understand the importance of this task is that, we are engaged in our heritage and are trying to connect with people. Folk songs are our property, it is a proof of our cultural history, tradition, practice and rich knowledge. It is indulged in our festivals, celebrations, cultural and family events.
The participation of the common man in this is unimaginable. Whether a man of our society is as modern as he is serving NASA or sitting on the pinnacle of cinema, cricket, governance and wealth, he also feels happy to remember his tradition. India is the only country in the world where folk songs have their own large world.
These songs are written by some narrative related to each region. Every language and every region has their own folk songs. Those songs are of love, of heroism, of happiness, of grief, of union and of separation. You will enjoy this on the website of Indian Desi Folk.
It is our endeavor that whatever things have reached in the state of being invisible due to the time cycle, they should be reconciled and put in front of everybody so that you can come to know about yourself and where are you today.
