Santhal woman requests: Make rules more pro-woman in Santhal tradition...

Priyasheela Besra is talking to Emami Murmu in Dumka in Santhal Pargana Jharkhand who is telling her that traditional Santhal rules need to be more pro-woman. She is victim of a rule where if a family has no son then son in law is given the land rights. Emami is forced to leave her home and village for this rule and her complaint to Gram Sabha has also not helped. She requests to make rules more pro-woman.

संथाल परगना हो सोना दिसुम...एक संथाली गीत

Priyasheela Besra is singing a Santhali song saying Adivasis worship the nature and not Gods and they do not grow rice but many coarse grain in the foerst and sing this song
संथाल परगना हो सोना दिसुम
बीर बुरु ते,गडा सोडोक ते
दारी नड़ी कोते , सजावा कान
आतु सिम को राग साँवते,
बीर चेड़े को चेरो बेरो
मनवा कुराग साँवते, चन्दोई गोंगआ
