Dhola by Bina Mistry

This video was released on MTV just before Diwali, during the 90s. It was my morning cup of tea.

In Hindi (and Punjabi), Dhola means husband, beloved, or lover. Then there is a shorter version of the word, ‘Dhol,’ which refers to a particular Indian drum (Dhol @ Wikipedia). But dhol is usually used for both, the beloved and the drum – because both make your heart go “Boom!”

Listen to the song and let the deep raw grunt of dhol work its magic on your sluggish mind.
