Tribal songs during 1857

A forgotten aspect of #1857 uprising is the role of the tribals who also participated.

A bhojpuri song from 1857

Ab chod re firangiyal hamar deswa

Lutpat kaile tuhun majwa udaile

Kailas des par julum Jor.

Sahar gaon luuti, phunki dihiat firangiya

Suni Suni kunwar ke hridaya mein lagal aagiya

Ab chod re firangiyal Hamar deswa

British leave our country as ypu loot us

Enjoy the luxury of our country

And in return you have looted & burnt our hamlets, cities & villages

Kunwar ‘ s heart burns to know all this

Oh British leave our country
