So you must have seen the video of Lalu Yadav watching Launda dance. Now let us tell you why this style of dance is called Launda Naach? It is called Launda Naach because in it only men dance wearing women’s clothes. The Launda dancers apply so much make-up that unless they come closer, you don’t even realize that they are men and not women. Launda dance became popular in Bihar and Purvanchal in the 19th century. At that time women were not allowed to dance in public. At that time men of lower castes used to dance wearing make-up and taking the form of women. The most famous artist of Launda Naach is Ramchandra Majhi. He is 92 years old and has been dancing Launda for 80 years. Ramchandra is a resident of Chhapra. Another famous Launda Naach artist is Lakhichand.
