Hindustani Classical Music

jaa jaa re apane mandiravaa

This composition is a bandish by Niyamat Khan. It is based on a rather popular, flirtatious theme of the newly-wed bride, who wants to be with her husband, but is shy and self-conscious in a joint-family setting, surrounded by the prying eyes of her in-laws. In this bandish she begs her husband to stop following her around, as she's afraid her mother-in-law and sisters-in-law could be listening/watching.
