Types of Female Folk in Kashur Khandar

Kashur khandar is all fun with the lovely female folk. Starting from cute chubby toddlers dressed in beautiful uncomfortable dresses to old great grannies who have only one job “Doikher karun”.
 
Now let me tell you some categories.
 
My fav are those chulbuli, chan chabeli type girls namely janu, sonu, monu, simi, pinki, rani etc.  One can find them in small gangs. Unmarried offcourse  wearing latest designer wear with zabardast artificial jewellery (achi wali), hair style crisp , nail polish  cham cham. Pouting and clicking selfies  in every nook and corner. One just loves to see them . They are so chirpy chirpy and bubbly bubbly . Oh but these girls are the last ones to get ready ( Actually they are “getting ready” since eternity ) but these kori are your go to person in shadiz as they are always ready to go to the market, do idhar udhar kai kaam (in between getting ready). Ask them how do I look  they will give you an expert answer. They always have extra pins they have a press and press palav around (ironing sab dostun n dushmano kai kadpai ), they are sab ki make up girls. Dulhan ka room sajana is their birth right 
 
There are some girls who are recently engaged. You can find them in the corner clicking pictures and sharing them  you know where.
 
Then there are newly married girls. They will be twinning with their husbands . Zabardast tilla-work dresses, beautifully designed brocade or parch dresses, matching clutches  and sandals , gold gold n gold  beautiful version of Bappi lehri they are. Throughout the wedding they are busy doing kherpath .
 
Also there are young ladies with kids, they are always running after their kids, feeding, cleaning and dressing them and repeating the same cycle over and over again. Ohh and what they wear?  Whatever they fit into, yes they have become moti.
 
No khandar is complete without wanvun tumbakhnari and noet. You have some ladies singing in melodious voices “dekho sab mehmaan dulhan aalishan dulhan aalishan “
 
Some are pareshan aatmaz all they do is lose keyz.
 
Now some ladies will be going from room to room asking “tohi ma kensi wartav lifafi “
 
Some will be like “Tai janu dur kash ma tohi kaanh nazri “and janu is a smart chulbuli girl she will be like no chachi lo meri pin sai duri ko fit karo. Chachi happy with janu will have another farmayish tai jigar wondmaiyi mai lag aakh sormi tuej and janu is not too tacky to use sormi tuej, she has Chambor ka kajal which she happily uses to beautify her chachiz eyes( meanwhile chachi scans her make up , jewellery, dresses )
 
Some ladies will barge into the all girls dressing room and say ..”balai lagai tohi ma dur kansi, sichan shikas ladan cha ne yath thav machi seeth “
 
There are always some ladies who hold big forts like chai samawar , kehwi samawar, rohan pran charu , dan tulun etc. They are the last ones to get dressed and take 15mins to get ready aabi thomb , sormi tuej ,kangu and kapdai change … hang on some thing is missing   her dupatta it’s still with the dyer and janu and team are off to market to fetch her dupatta , meanwhile she calls some one to fill them with the latest details.
 
Now we have some, basically one or two ladies in the whole family  they are the most trusted ones. Who are they? Com’on, they are the ones who write wartav  most trusted, honest, alert, good at maths . They suddenly appear in the tent with a chair, a big bag , a pen  and a notebook Their entry creates more huzz buzz than a brides entry. 
We also have the curious ones, oh they check kya suzuv , kya trovuv, kutah dyutuv , kyah votuv, kus aav, kus drav, kyah chu zebti ,kyah chune shubaan , yeman kyazi pricuv , human kyazi prichuvni , mardav kheowa batte, kem kyah kor wartav .
 
Allah taalah thevnakh sarni sehat
