English: A bride and women in her family would weep over her departure to the in-laws' house in the Indian state of Odisha. These songs are known as "Bahuna" or "Bahuna gita". Would-be brides used to be taught by mothers and grandmothers about the tone and lyrics of these songs. These songs are rarely sung in the modern days. There is least available documentation of these oral tradition and its history. It is important to note that an Odia girl usually leave her parental home and live with the husband's and husbands' family after marriage.
