Archive for the ‘Assamese’ Category

2011 saw the demise of many a legend.Bhupen Hazarika,probably the greatest Assamese of our times,was one of them.This total artist -he was a singer,composer,filmmaker,lyricist & writer all rolled in one,was a genius.Most of the people in India,outside of Assam & Bengal,know him as the ‘Ganga behti ho kyun’ man.But his other songs, which sadly have not got their deserved national recognition,are even better.So,at a time when Bhupen Sir left us just some time back,i decided to post this song ‘Akashi Ganga’-an all time favorite song of mine here.

Like most of Bhupen Hazarika songs,this one has two versions-Bengali & Assamese.But,i prefer the Assamese version more and hence,i am posting it here.The starting lyrics goes like-

Akahi Ganga besora nai,nai besora shorno alankar.

Nishthor jeoner hangramer,besaror moromor math khaye.

VOCALS,LYRICS&MUSIC BY BHUPEN HAZARIKA.
