On 27th November 2018 Ashwini Pratap Pawar and Vedanth Bharadwaj had a private dance and music recital in a theatre for the performing arts in Kaavadi, near Auroville. This theatre is named "Salangai" which means ghungroos or anklets in Tamil.
Vedanth sang soulful Kabir songs which left the audience inspired and moved. Ashwini danced a repertoire of rhythmic Bharatanatyam compositions, adding joy to the delightful evening. That very morning, Ashwini and Vedanth, decided to collaborate in spontaneity. Sharing with all of you a small video clip of their collaboration to a song by Kabir, "Naiharva humka na bhaave" sung in a tune made popular by the legendary Pt. Kumar Gandharva. Filmed on the iPhone by Karthikeyan Kirubhakaran.

Lyrics and meaning -
नैहरवा हम का न भावे Naiharva humka na bhaave
I have no joy in my parents' home anymore
My old home, my girlhood home...

साई कि नगरी परम अति सुन्दर, Saaee ki nagari param ati sundar
The beloved's city is of breathtaking beauty
जहाँ कोई जाए ना आवे Jahan koi jaaye na aaye
Where no one enters, nor leaves
चाँद सुरज जहाँ, पवन न पानी, Chaand suraj jahaan, pavan na paani
No sun, no moon, no wind, no water
कौ संदेस पहुँचावै ko sandes pahunchaave
Who can take my message there?
दरद यह साई को सुनावै Darad yah saaee ko sunaave
Who will tell him of my pain

आगे चालौ पंथ नहीं सूझे, Aage chalo panth nahi soojhe
I can't find the way ahead
पीछे दोष लगावै Peeche dosh lagaave
To return to old ways would be folly
केहि बिधि ससुरे जाऊँ मोरी सजनी, Kehi bidhi sasure jaaun mori sajni
How can I reach the beloved's house, oh friend?
बिरहा जोर जरावे biraha jor jaraave
The fever of longing burns me
विषै रस नाच नचावे Vishay ras naach nachaave
Sensual delights make me dance to their tune

बिन सतगुरु आपनों नहिं कोई, Bin satguru aapno nahi koi
Who can you call your own except the true Guru
जो यह राह बतावे Jo yeh raah bataave
Who else can show the way?
कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो, Kahat Kabira suno bhaai saadho
Kabir says, listen seekers
सपने में प्रीतम आवे Supane na pritam aave
The beloved doesn't come in a dream
तपन यह जिया की बुझावे Tapan yeh jiya ki bujhaave
To douse the heart's flames
Make home theater
