Charkho (The Spinning Wheel)

Charkho refers to the spinning wheel used to make clothing. This song humorously narrates the story of a successful woman who arranged for a gold necklace and paid for her sister-in-law's wedding with the income earned from the charkho while her husband and brother-in-law undertook long journeys for their livelihood, returning with nothing.
