WATCH | Miss Ladoll rapping to highlight social issues of Ladakh


Leh: A budding artist from the union territory of Ladakh is using an innovative way to highlight issues of Ladakh and to support the movement of Ladakhi icon Sonam Wangchuk.

25 years old, Ladoll has produced a rap music video as a tribute for the agitation which has now become part of UT ’s agitation for inclusion in the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of India that grants certain special protection to tribal regions.

The lyrics of the song are:

Ladakh ki man ki baat sun lo desh vasio
Hai kaisa raaj jis mai bolne ka bhi haq na ho
Yunhi na bolte hum ki khatre mai hamaara ghar
Na dekha ho toh ja ke dekhlo YouTube par
Hai video Mr Sonam Wangchuk ka pahaad par
Baithe woh -20*C khel ke apni jaan par
Mangi hai humne ek cheez hai suraksha woh
Aisi ek nagri jise manaa desh ka taj ho
Chalo batayu kya hai 6th schedule do line mai
Isse surakhsha milti bharatya janjati ko

(Listen to Ladakh’s man ki baat, my compatriots
How’s this rule where one cannot even speak
We aren’t just blabbering about the risk our home is in
If you haven’t seen, go and check on YouTube
There are videos of Mr Sonam Wangchuk on the mountains
Protesting in -20*C risking his life
We are asking for one thing that is protection
Of our place which is considered the crown of the country
Now let me tell you what is 6th schedule in brief
It provides safety to the tribals of India.)

As per her interview with the outlook magazine, Ladakhi rapper Miss Ladoll did her schooling at Ladakh Public School. She completed her XII from Scholars Home in Dehradun and later she completed her graduation in agricultural science from Shri Guru Ram Rai Institute (PG) College, Dehradun. Now she is working with the ICCI Foundation.

Ladoll has been writing rap songs since 2020. However, in February 2021, she came up with her first rap video about climate change and other grievances.
