Bengali Modern Songs Lyrics compilation E Sudhu Ganer Din Launched
Many of the “adhunik” Bengali songs that many have relished listening on the radios have been compiled in a book titled “E Shudhu Gner Din” by Sisir Chakraborty. The release of this book took place at Starmark in the presence of Anindya Chatterjee, Surajit Chatterjee, Riddhi Bandyopadhyay, S. F. Karim, Ranjan Bandyopadhyay and others.
Around 781 of the Bengali adhunik songs sung by eminent artists like Hemanta Mukhopadhyay, Manna Dey and others have been compiled in this book. The main purpose of this compilation is to give the listeners a chance to sing the songs if they ever feel like doing it. S. F. Karim has written the introduction of this book.
“There was a time when slim books containing the songs’ lyrics were available for the people. But the problem is those are not available now. Hence I took this initiative of compiling as many songs as possible. There will be mistakes. Please feel free to rectify them” said Sisir Chakraborty.
Riddhi Bandyopadhyay and Surajit regaled the audiences by singing some songs after the book launch was over.
Published by Patra Bharati, the book is priced at Rs 600.
