West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has composed the theme song for a popular Durga puja in Kolkata this year. Banerjee said on Monday at a function with organisers of Durga puja committees that the lyrics aimed to bring back the spirit of ‘agomoni’ (traditional Bengali songs invoking the goddess) songs in theme music once again.
“I had been asked by Arup (Banerjee’s cabinet minister Arup Biswas) to compose the theme song for his Durga puja (Suruchi Sangha) and I decided to retain the spirit of Agomoni songs like ‘Ja Devi Sarbabhuteshu’ in my lyrics.
Hope it will be liked by everyone,” she said. Popular singer and West Bengal Minister of State for Culture Indranil Sen has lent voice to the lyrics.
