“This is my first foray into composing music. But I will say that I found translating Ghalib was more difficult. He is an icon and his writings are sacred books to me. It was such a difficult job to pick and select which creations of him to be taken up for the translation job. Hope the audience loves it” said Srijato.

Six popular Ghazals of Ghalib have been translated in this album. The music of the album has been arranged by Prattyush Bandopadhyay.

“I was a bit skeptical initially that whether I will be able to do justice to the songs. Srijato asked me to listen to the songs and then I can decline if I did not find them appealing. I listened to the song and I was hooked to it. This is how I became a part of this album” said Shubhamita.
