Title Janjh Jiva Singh
Description This poetic narrative belonging to the Punjabi folklore called "Kissa kav" refers to the ancient custom of Punjab where a female magician casts a spell on the whole wedding party at a moment when its members sit for taking the wedding feast. The wedding party resumes eating only after some wise man neutralizes the magic spell by his own supernatural powers. Such beliefs and practices were part of the Punjab folklore. The narrative written in racy, recitative style highlights the kinds of dishes and items of jewellery of those times.
