Today’s song: Mejhete gorto chhilo (cracks in the floor)

4 May, 2017

This is a song about a carpet and an old cracked floor; carpets of various lavish designs and floors of various sizes, colours and materials. The carpet stays nicely over the cracks full of venomous insects, wears out gradually and gets replaced by a new one, till one day the house cracks down entirely. Lyrics by Shubho Dasgupta and music by Samir Chattopadhyay, the song is from Bengali singer Lopamudra Mitra’s second album ‘Onno Hawar Onno Gan'(1999). Wonder if the song stops being relevant one day; if the floor is repaired, or the house cracks down for once and all.
