O my love, my Kunju
don't come here late at night
our enemies await with loaded guns
My dear Chanchalo don't worry
our enemies can’t even touch me
I will do as i please
is a beautiful and very famous love story of
Kunjo and Chanchalo. Kunjo was a boy of a low
caste and Chanchalo, of a higher caste, richer,
who lived in a city. They loved each other but
Kunjo was not treated well in the village. One
day they broke all barriers and got married
and Kunjo went to a distant land to earn a living.
He gave a beautiful garland of flowers to Chanchalo
to keep as a souvenir. The song describes Chanchalo's
waiting for her lover Kunjo to return.
