Ginan With Music – Mein Waari Waari By Farida Karmali

JollyGul Music Group presents Farida Karmali’s soulful rendition of “Mein Waari Waari” in an audio format with music as well as running lyrics and translations.

The ginan composed by Pir Hasan Kabiruddin is rich with metaphoric references. There are 3 types of individuals analogized to nutmegs (jaefal), cloves (lo-ng) and betel nuts (sopaari). There is mention of a well full of water as a “wealthy” person of many virtues. We are also reminded about the imperative to escape from the cycle of rebirth through good conduct in the material and spiritual world. And finally, the Pir yearns for Aswaari (arrival or manifestation of the Imam who brings light, knowledge, and liberation).
