From the 1981 Telugu movie Bhogi Mantalu, Sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, P. Susheela, Chandrasekhar Prakash and Kaushalya, Music composed by Ramesh Naidu to the Lyrics penned by Aathreya and Veturi. This is to commence the start of the three day Harvest Festival celebrated in most states in India.



The Harvest Festival is the first of the ones that comes up in the Roman Calendar (if you take the actual Telugu Calendar that we follow it probably would be towards the end of the year). It’s a three day festival with the first day being Bhogi where you discard old things and march towards new things. There are so many interesting events that happen during this day: we have colorful rangoli in front of your house decorated with gobbemma (cow dung mounds topped with flowers); Singing Haridasu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haridasu) who spreads melody in return for food or gift; decorated bulls are taken around which are worshipped and again offered gifts; kids flying kites (a competition that is cut throat sometimes literally); enjoy the Bhogi Pallu event (pouring of the harvest fruit and coins on little kids); in villages and towns there would be a huge bonfire at the end of the day called Bhogi Mantalu trying to drive away the little chill that’s in the air and finally loads and loads of food to eat all thru the day.

Since this festival comes just the day before the main festival Sankranthi, I couldn’t find many songs that covered this concept. The only song I found doesn’t have a video…pity cause that particular song covers the entire aspect of the festival that I mentioned above.

Lyrics:

Ravamma mahalakshmi  ravamma e kovela I illu koluvu


Bhogullo Bhogullo Bhoga Bhagyala Bhogullo
