WB CM Mamata begins Durga Puja festivities by releasing her debut music album | India News


NEW DELHI: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee began the Durga Puja festivities on Mahalaya, which fell on Sunday, by releasing her debut album of special songs, titled ‘Utsaver Gaan’.
She has not just sung a song ‘Dhak dumadum’, along with singer-turned-politician Indranil Sen and Aditi Munshi, but has also written the lyrics of all the songs and composed the music of the album.
The album comprises of eight Puja-special songs sung by the likes of Jit Ganguly, Sriradha and Monomoy, besides her Trinamool Congress party MLAs Babul Supriyo and Indranil.
Meanwhile Supriyo released a separate Puja-special album ‘Jai Ma Durga’, dedicating it to Banerjee on Mahalaya, which marks the beginning of the 10-day festival.

This year the biggest festival of Bengal is all the more special as it was been inscribed on Unesco’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity last December, catapulting Durga Puja to the global map.

On Thursday night, representatives of Unesco visited some Durga Puja pandals, checking out the intricate details and the efforts that go into giving shape to the idols and setting up the venues. The tour was a part of the Durga Puja Art preview, which is in the context of the honour, under which the organisers wanted the Unesco representatives to get a first-hand feel of what goes into making the festival.
