    have you heard of a folk dance called "JHUMAR", I guess many of you might have heard of it, But how many of you have seen it ? Well very few, as a matter of fact it is slowly eloping from punjab. Do u know who is Master of Jhumar in punjab right now? Phokhar singh is the only person ( whereas i know ) who has kept it alive and he himself feels that this folk dance will one day become a history. I read about Phokhar singh on tribune website, they have also posted a small media clip covering an interview about Phokhar singh. Another article i could find on "JHUMAR" dance was on sadapunjab.com which puts some light on this folk dance and also on phokhar singh.
    If any one ahs more information on Jhumar , please post it , i am very anxious to read about it.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
