Sassi Punnu

Description This "kissa" is written in a popular typical poetical metrical composition called "kali". In this meter, each sentence contains a fixed number of words which end in a long echoing melodious time. This "kali" is to be sung at a very high pitch by an accomplished singer only to the accompaniment of selected musical instruments like "Algeza" & Dholak. The whole composition is written in "kahan". Another distinct feature of this piece is that each "kali" is followed by its paraphrase in Punjabi prose. The poet also employs erotic imagery to describe the curves of beautiful heroine's shapely figure[edit]
