Sunset in Jaiselmer, song by jagjit singhIn the sandy deserts of Rajasthan, a girl sings that her beloved had promised to return to the village and her in the rainy season. Without him, she finds her homeland lonely.

(Rajasthan gets little if any rain! Rain is symbolic of hope and happiness especially in the desert.) She continues to narrate her pain and dissapointment that she is still waiting, walking the sandy lanes… No rain, no beloved…
