The girls perform a remix of Bhangra and Giddha. They talk about Paranda (used to tie up long hair) and Jhanjran (a piece of jewellery). They also discuss beauty and compare their beauty with the beauty of a peacock.

Bhangra Boys ( Beginners)
A man named Tara Chanda calls other men to bring tumbi, nagaoze (instruments) and then they start Bhangra. They also praise the natural beauty of the Punjab with its five rivers, agricultural fields, and healthy, strong, and brave men.
