Durga Pujo theme song, penned by Didi, launched
Religion is personal but festivals are universal – this is the underlying theme of the song written by Mamata Banerjee’s theme for Suruchi Sangha Club on the occasion of Durga Pujo. This is the fifth consecutive year that she has penned the Durga Pujo theme song.
The song was released on September 28, on the occasion of the auspicious day of Mahalaya. The song is part of an album of songs, sung by Shreya Ghoshal and composed by Jeet Ganguli. A video was also published, featuring Parambrata and Nusrat Jahan, and directed by Sujit Mukherji.
Durga Pujo festival goes beyond the barriers of religion, caste or age, and is one which brings unfettered happiness in every household. The festival brings people together in a great celebration – this is the underlying message of the lyrics.
