Non-instrumental Cover of a Very Bengali Song!

'Ami Banglay Gaan Gai' is a song written by Pratul Mukhopadhyay (one of those extremely beautiful singer-songwriter-composers who lost their heads after 2009 and gave in to the right-wing exacerbation that has conglomerated into the near future situation in the polity of West Bengal ever since then. The other people on this list would include Kabir Suman, Mahasweta Devi among others.) Coming back to the song, 'Ami Banglay Gaan Gai' literally means 'I sing in Bengali' and is an extremely touching song that remarks the beauty, serenity and power that lasts in the heart of a language. 



I actually uploaded it on my personal Facebook page on 21st February this year. The complete lyrics of the song has been provided in the description box itself (and in case you want me to do it, I could very well do a translation job any day.) Beginning from the bright, young men to the old and wise professors, to the landless labourer - the International Mother Language Day is a tribute to all the living struggles against the imperialistic domination of the linguistic and social culture of one's homeland. 
To this very day, the struggle against the perils of capitalism in every stratum must go on.
