Today is Mahalaya, the start of the celebrations for Durga Puja.
As soon as I hear this song – Jago Durga, I am transported to the school days, when we had to tune in to SW (Short Wave) to catch signals from Calcutta and precisely at about 7am this song would play. I am getting goose bumps as I right this, I can see those days.
The person who has posted this also has some childhood memories
The song is rendered by Dwijen Mukherjee. For a long time I thought it was by Hemanta Mukherjee as they sound so similar. The song is sung to bring the idol of Goddess Durga to life, so – Jago Durga; and is sung in her praise.
If you too have some childhood memories with this song, then do post them as comments.
