"Ganga behti ho kyun" [Bistirna Parore]

Bistar hain apar, praja dono par
Kare hahakar nishapda sada
O ganga tum ganga behti ho kyun?

Naitikata nasht hui, manavta bhrasht hui
Nirlajya bhav se behti ho kyun?

Itihaans ki pukaar, kare hunkaar
O Ganga ki dhar, nirbal jan ko
Sabal sangrami, samagragrami
Banati nahi ho kyun?

Anparh jan, aksharhin
Anginjan kaijyabihin
Nidrabihin dekh mouna kyun


Itihaans ki pukaar, kare hunkaar
O Ganga ki dhar, nirbal jan ko
Sabal sangrami, samagragrami
Banati nahi ho kyun?
Vyakti rahe vyakti kendrik
Sakal samaj byaktitya rahit
Nishpran samaj ko tor ti naa kyun

This lovely song with its beautiful lyrics borrows its music heavily from Jerome Kern's 'Showboat' masterpiece ' Old man River

It's the type of song I seeked for a long. Fully able to remind one what he or she is for there, in world. Tells the actual way to live and how much we far from it.
It is my most most favorite song.

Best song to say us why we are silent, blind ....from my childhood I m listing this song (in Assameses) and every time I get inspire...he referred to louit (Brahmaputra) in the original Assameses version. Beautifully expressing his anger taking support of d river..
