Ram Bhaila Jogiya - Khadi Biraha - Manna Lal Yadav - Called a Khadi Biraha, these are short songs that are sung without any musical accompaniment and Manna Lal Yadav brings great emotion to the rendering of this one. Bhara Ho Bhara Ho - Geet - Mohan Lal Kanskar - Possibly this song seeks to make a comment on some of the ills of modern society and rues about the fact that hardly any attention is paid to villages in today's times. Pahad Ki Gaadi Mein - Geet - Radha - A simple song, it brings out the memory of the homeland that exists in the hearts of those who have to live far away. Gadi Chaleli Chaleli - Chhapeli - Anandi Devi & Santram - The precise meaning of this song is not clear and the stanzas have most likely been added over time by the singer. Towards the end of the song the singer gives his own introduction and his complete address. This is a common practice followed in many folk songs. Mili Juli Gaave - Manoj Tiwari 'Mridul' - A typical Sohar, sung to celebrate the birth of a child, this song describes the jubilation in the house of Baba Nand at the birth of Lord Krishna.
