Kolkata Bangla Band Deenga Official LogoWashington DC, May 10, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Thir name, "Deenga", literally means a small boat in Bangla language. They are six guys sailing on an ocean of music. Meet the promising young Bengali folk-rock fusion band from Kolkata.

Deenga’s members are influenced by different genres of music which is reflected in their compositions. Deenga is very much influenced by Bengal's folk and rural songs, and they rearrange those songs to create their signature sound.

Their philosophy is to do simple music and spread peace and harmony. Deenga’s first album published by Asha Audio in   2005 was titled "Bhese Pori" (let's sail).

Formed in 2003 when six like minded professional musicians thought of getting together and doing something on their own, Deenga are a pretty well known band in today's Kolkata music circuit, which they attribute to their belief and confidence on themselves and hard work, though they, of course, feel there is still a long way to go. Their music is sometimes about the present political scenario, love and emotions of human heart, and the society we live in. "Nothing is compared to hard work and dedication. Music flows from your heart so don’t be too technical…it is feel that gives rise to good music" summarize Deenga about the path to musical success.

Swastika on Bengali Films Bhooter Bhabishyat, Tabe Tai Hok, Maach Mishti and More, Nandini, Aatta Ater Bongaon Local (Interview)

This is a paid article from Databazaar Media Ventures.

By Shoma A. Chatterji

Swastika MukherjeeCalcutta, September 23, 2011 (Databazaar Media Ventures) Swastika Mukherjee began her career when she was very young. But her film career did not take off at the time so she concentrated on telefilms, working in some really good and memorable ones. But big screen ventures remained confined to small budget films or films that were not marketed properly. She is very optimistic about her role in Anik Dutta’s Bhooter Bhabishyat. This film has already been acquired by Databazaar Media Ventures for distribution, streaming, telecasting and so on in North America and Canada.

What role are you playing in Bhooter Bhabishyat?

Bhooter Bhabishyat is a delightful, tongue-in-cheek film about ghosts of different kinds who gather in a haunted house. I am a ghost and it is my house in which the ghosts gather to live together. My character, when alive, was a famous film star from the Black-and-White era. But the character did not want to act in films or become a star. She wanted to get married but her father forced her to get into films. So, she commits suicide and her ghost keeps haunting the house she lived in. Samadarshi is one of the ghosts I am expected to be involved with.

Other than being a ghost, what other elements are there in the character?
