The Cleanliness Song - Gadi Wala Aaya
To put it in simple words “Gadi wala aaya ghar se kachra nikal” translates to “Vehicle has come, get the garbage out of your house”. Now, when I was in Lucknow last week at my grandparent’s place, I heard this song “Gadi wala aaya ghar se kachra nikal” being played on a loudspeaker. I first thought it was some ad on the radio, but that kept on playing for a good hour or so. The next day when I went out to see what this was exactly and was surprised to see this.
