It is believed that if the collecting happens without the singing, tigers may attack and kill people. So while coming to the bamboo collecting, they would say something deceptive like ‘lets make our bed here’, which the tiger might overhear, but then they would actually go away somewhere. These words are not in the song, but this is what people used to say when bamboo collecting. 1’45” asking whether there is a rice pounding song. The answer is non. The Tikhak do have.
