Dulla Batti Song

Dulla Batti is a popular song accompanying the famous Bhangra dance of Punjab. The words in this song depict the courage and valor of a youth named Dulla Batti.

Dulla Batti was a young Rajput warrior, who revolted against the Mughal rulers because of the heavy tax levied by them. His father and grandfather, who were the chieftains, were executed by the Mughals owing to their failure in paying the taxes. Dulla Batti fought with great courage but was defeated in the end.

His life story has been made immortal in the songs of the Bhangra. They are a source of inspiration for the people, imparting a sense of patriotism in them.
