Grindmill songs of Maharashtra — Song #25763 by More Lakshmi

Village: शिंदगाव - Shindgaon

E:XIV-1.3b (E14-01-03b) - Relatives attached to daughter / Mother, daughter and daughter’s husband / Mother requests son-in-law to be nice with her

Earlier, many times a brother’s daughter would be given in marriage to his sister’s son. Mother-in-law was thus related to her son-in-law, her nephew. She would request and plead him to be nice to her daughter and treat her well. The singers call their son-in-law “Javai bal“in Marathi, which literally means son-in-law, my child.
