"Useful" folklore: bhojpuri songs to make the rain fall

As we bear the brunt of the drought, here is a rare form of bhojpuri chanting to the rescue. These are the harparawri or songs to make the rain fall. They will be in the spotlight on Wednesday, December 2, on the occasion of the commemorations of the four years since the inscription of the geet gawai on the list of intangible world heritage.
