=========================

Vautha is situated in Gujarat near city Dholka. It is where 7 small rivers meet, making it a holy place according to Hindus called ‘Sangam’ On the full-moon day and night, and some days around that, a large fair takes place in the open sands of the rivers.

While farmers barely have luxury of a vacation, this is a perfect vacation place and time. The fair is not too far from my birthplace ‘Dethali’, a small village.  Beginning from age 4, I remember visiting the fair many times. What an excitement for children. And of course for young adults. At 4.00 am, a convoy of open bull wagons would take of for 4-5 hours journey. We kids, shivering in cold, and enjoying every moment of it, wrapped up in blankets. Most would sleep on the bull wagons, or on sand. Some of us (influential ) lucky ones could sleep in tent-restaurants or in a tent of a district management office. Though I do remember spending nights in a 2′ wide  bull wagon once.

The merry-go-rounds, the sweets and Bhajiys for junk food, young men and women (most of them married) carefully glancing at other young people, kids playing sports and playing with their toys like Paper-Goggles.

When I wrote and composed thee song ‘Pori Pai de Tu’ for album  AasopalavNi Dale, these images of Vautha fair came rushing to me. So you have mention of the VauthaNa MelaMan Dhabke Dhabak Orta (Heartbeats of dream in Vautha Fair.)

Pora Pai De Tu

Pora paide tu preetni pyali, ke marun jobaniyun jaay saav khaali

Pori paide tu roopni pyali, ke maarun jobaniyun jaay saava khaali,

Vauthana melaaman dhabake dhabak orta, ankhdina sodagar dalladan ne chorta

Mane lai ja mele tu haath zali, ke marun jobaniyun jaay saav khaali

Pori paide tu roopni pyali, ke maarun jobaniyun jaay saava khaali,

Kalbalta tahukaman kaidto ujagaro, zamake maari zanzari ne ghamake maro ghagharo

Hun to ghunghatne kholine chaali, ke maarun jobaniyun jaay saava khaali

Pora paide tu preetni pyali, ke marun jobaniyun jaay saav khaali
