IMA Bhiwani celebrated '' Lohari '' on 13.1.2011 & I conducted & compered this prog. The Gidda dance by the female members was the highlight of the celebrations.

Women have a different but no less exuberant dance called "Gidda". During 'Lohri' festival the Punjabi women revelling joy, give vent to their suppressed feelings in a male dominated society through the Giddha. Slogans known as 'BOLEES' are sung while dancing which exhibit the deep human feeling.
The dance is derived from the ancient ring dance. One of the women plays on the drum or 'dholki' while others form a circle. While moving in a circle, the girls raise their hands to the level of their shoulders and clap their hands in unison.Rhythm is generally provided by clapping of hands.
Quick is the movement of the feet in its faster parts that it is difficult for the spectator even to wink till the tempo falls again.
Their embroidered dupattas and ethnic jewelry emphasize the quick turns as they dance to the vivacious tunes. The female dancers are clad in a short choli with a lower ghagra or lehnga or simple a vibrant Punjabi Salwar-Kameez. The apparel is embellished with jewelry and accessories that comprise of the suggi-phul (worn on head) to pazaibs (anklets), haar-hamela, (gem-studded golden necklace) baazu-band (worn around upper-arm) and raani-haar (a long necklace made of solid gold).
