This is what the famous Muslim poet Babu Razab Ali wrote about this degrading festival of women:

Naach Karvonde Si Blaa Ke Dheaa Je, Sogh Payge Arsh Me,

Oodo deaa lageaa lagan teea ji, Bharat barsh me.

Utam Kull Di Karn Bachatree, Marte Malesh Ji

Hind Te Dharam Di Khalri Chatar, Pitaa Ji Dashmesh Ne.

To give a brief translation, Baba Razab Ali writes that this celebration started when Muslims used to pick up the good looking Indian women and make them dance infront of people.

It must be very disgraceful for women to dance at such places, but now them, especially the Punjabans take great pride in celebrating these things. Guru Sahib clears tells us that indulging in things like dancing is total manmat: nach nach hasse chale se roe..

And then the poet tells us that these things were finally put to stop when Pitaa Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji took a stand against the evil Muslim rulers. But we have again started doing these things again.

savan chariya "Teeiyan" aiya

pippla de nall peenga paiya

kathiya ho nanda parjaiya

ni ek duje nu kendi

ni ajja pabhi, path kar lai

umar beet di jandi

I am not sure if this kavita is avialable online or not but you can look it up in Babu Razab Ali's 'Chonvee Kavita'. This is the title of the poem and it became really famous when he wrote it. It was basically explanning the brief history of India.

thanks, the reason i asked, is that i don't think the celebration of teeaaan has nething to do with the poem you posted, but i will try to find it to get more info.

Not sure how you could think that way when the word teeaa is clearly mentioned in the kavita.

i don't see how the poem you posted could be related to the teeaan in punjab. I mean if something so gravely dishonorable was being done and the people just don't know about it so out of their ignorence they perform such acts with joy. i didn't say you were wrong veer, i just have a hard time believing that its the same thing...thas why i said i will get more info on it. :TH:

    • Guest puzz1ed
      That's the genius of the Pakistani troll. By pretending to be a Sikh of his same surname he tries fly under the radar That's why chose puzzledtoo as in order to look respectable initially. So that peeps thought it was you (puzzled). In short puzzled is not the same as Guest puzz1ed. The only thing Mahmud Dulai has to be proud of is a circumcision (not a Dastar)  
    • He keeps his hair and wears a pagh. 
    • Maybe because he didnt sexually abuse anyone.. Why should anyone hate him when they dont know him or what the story is. Whose to say me or you are not bigger sinners then him? Hatred is a strong word Singh... is hate any less then kaam or humkar?   "Let the one who is without sin strike first"
    • Well done Guest Ban jee . Excellent job, by revealing the  truths of a troll.  I had my doubts since the very beginning he stepped in, he was even told that the type of questions he asked, were not likely to be asked by sikh, upon which he said something like, he was 100 %sikh... he is/was so blinded by trying to prove wrong sikhee under the pretext of science, that, that very his unethical behavoiur, ended by revealing his true foolishness and fakeness  Shame on him...
    • “You were born with potential.
      You were born with goodness and trust.
      You were born with ideals and dreams.
      You were born with greatness.
      You were born with wings.
      You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
      You have wings (Bhakti).
      Learn to use them and fly.”     “When you look for God,
      God is in the look of your eyes
      In the thought of looking, nearer to you than your self,
      or things that have happened to you There’s no need to go outside.
      Be melting snow.
      Wash yourself of yourself. A white flower grows in the quietness.
      Let your tongue become that flower.”     “You call out, I am the lover,
      But these are mere words.
      If you see lover and Beloved as two,
      you either have double vision,
      or you can’t count.”     “Oh Beloved,
      take me.
      Liberate my soul.
      Fill me with your love and
      release me from the two worlds.
      If I set my heart on anything but you
      let fire burn me from inside.
      Oh Beloved,
      take away what I want.
      Take away what I do.
      Take away what I need.
      Take away everything
      that takes me from you”                                    RUMI
