Unique organization in Bundelkhand of its own kind to promote tourism .
बुन्देलखण्ड धरती का स्वर्ग , धरा का प्राण रे ,
हो पर्यटन केंद्र दुनिया देखे यह द्रश्य महान रे ।
विंध्य श्रेणियों की मालायें , रह-रह किसे बुलाती है,
चित्रकूट की सुंदरता पर विश्व विभा झुक जाती है ।
खजुराहों की मूर्तिकला दुनिया का आकर्षण है ,
कला शिल्प में पत्थर को भी जीवित करने का प्रण है ।
कलिंजर का दुर्ग न जिसको जीत सका है काल रे ,
बुन्देलखण्ड धरती का स्वर्ग , धरा का प्राण रे |
Raai has been the folk dance which has touched its peak as a classical dance. Raai means a mustard seed. When a mustard seed is thrown into a saucer, the seed starts to swings around. The way mustard seed moves in the saucer, the dancers also swings and when the singers sing the lyrics of the song the dancers follow the beats with foot steps. It is a duet and the competition is between the beats of the drum and foot steps of the dancer. The drummer and the dancer try to win each other and this competition leads towards the bliss.
Diwari in Bundelkhand is performed every year during the festival of light Diwali/Deepawali in the end of October or first week of November according to lunar calendar. The dancers wear multi-coloured apparels and the chief dancer holds the peacock feathers in his hands and the rest stick those feathers in their half pants. The main instruments used in this dance are ‘Dholak’ and ‘Nagaria’. The male dancers with long sticks show the marshal arts when the beats of drums inspire their energy and emotions.
