Babul (बाबुल pronounced baabul) is an old Hindi term for father indicating a daughter\s affection. The term is now mainly used in the context of a newly married daughter leaving her father\s home in many Hindi songs. In the India, the conclusion of a daughter\s marriage, marked by the bidaai (farewell) ceremony, is a profoundly sad occasion, because after this she no longer belongs to her father\s house, but to her husband\s family. The moment thus marks the end of her past life and the beginning of a new one. Wajid Ali Shah (1822-1887), the last nawab of Awadh, wrote a popular bhairavi thumri \"Babul mora naihar chhooto hi jaay\", where he likens bidai to death, and how own banishment for his beloved Lucknow (video search for Saigal\s 1938 rendition): बाबुल मोरा, नैहर छूटो ही जाए चार कहार मिल, मोरी
