Any attempts at a tune are quickly forgotten as a huge crowd, comprising of youngsters and also some old time friends of Mr Kovind join in, creating quite a noise.
The scene of action: a two-room community centre constructed by Mr Kovind at the same place where his parents' hut stood earlier. The community centre is used by one and all in the village.
Some distance away, at a primary school that Mr Kovind went to, a Ramayan Katha is on, funded by the entire village, to mark the ascent of one of their own to the highest chair in the country.
"Oh our village is going to be on the world map soon... it's because of him. Now there will be better roads, perhaps we may get our own college," said Gauri Shankar Shrivastava, who says he is Mr Kovind's friend.
And so, a DJ has been summoned, a tent and chairs are in place, and a freestyle dance in progress when we visit. A popular Bhojpuri number suitable for freestyle dances, is on loop and so is a rather bold dance.
Pyarelal has a small cloth shop in the main market in Jhinjhak town. He opened the shop four decades ago. Before that, he used to run a small cart in a congested bylane in the town.
One of the neighbours of Mr Kovind in Jhinjhak is a golgappa seller by the name of Pawan, who runs a cart that does by the name of Pawan Batashe Waala and is very popular in the locality. "I don't know then man personally but the day he is sworn in, I will distribute free golgappas all day," he announced.
Till about 2:30 pm, Mr Kovind had scored 1,389 votes with value of 4,79,585 while his opponent Meira Kumar had got 576 votes with value of 2,04,594 after counting in parliament and 11 states.
