Srimad Bhagavad Gita | A Spiritual & Philosophical Interpretation In Poetry | Barnali Saha

Bhagavad Gita

Subject: The Bhagavad Gita is an intrinsic part of the Indian philosophy. The spiritual and the philosophical aspect of the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita touched me, and made me ponder over the essence of human life. Having read the Bhagavad Gita, I decided to compose a poem on the topic in my own way. The work is original and is inspired by teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.

The scene: Kurukshetra battle field, where Panadavas fought the Kauravas. Arjuna the valiant Pandav, son of Pandu sit in agony. He could see the death ground where members of his family now fight. He is in desperation.

Tarun Banerjee | Bangla Adhunik Gaan | Bengali Adhunik Songs | Rabindra Sangeet

Bangla Adhunik / Bengali Modern songs & Rabindra Sangeet / Tagore Songs by Tarun Bandopadhyay are evergreen favorites of Bangla Music lovers. Tarun Banerjee is one of the shining stars of the Bengali Music Golden Nostalgic Period / Nostalgia Age / Swarna Joog of Bangla Gaan. His Adhunik / Bengali Modern Bangla Songs and Rabindra Sangeet songs are cherished collectibles in a majority of Bengali households even today.

The nostalgic Bangla Adhunik Songs of the Bengali Swarnajug era are famously romantic and are mostly Bengali love songs in nature. Various subtle and strong sentiments are expressed with poetic license in extraordinary beautiful albums that are great works of art. The dry reality of post-modern Bengali song writing and music composition found today is a far cry from nostalgia era bangla adhunik gaan. Focus has also shifted away from high art to the physical, and though love is still often the subject, it is not uncommon to find a bangla song about sex and the human body any more. Western Rock has long celebrated making love in love songs, and Bengali music is not far behind.
