Yu Jamanu Kanu Aye

Yu Jamanu Kanu Aye

The song predicts the social changes that will happen 100 years hence - in other words, the contemporary age. For example, the song predicts that paper money would replace the use of stamped coins, and the value of the buffalo would reach Rs.1200. Shiv Charan performed this song in order to emphasize that Baddi performers were not only geneologists and bards, but also prophets with the ability to see into the future. Shiv Charan claims that this was one of his grandfather's compositions from the early part of the 20th century.
