The Spirit of Ganga Putri.

              


Bistirno Parore(Ganga tum behti ho kyun) is one of the best Assamese rendition of Late Dr. Bhupen Hazarika.

The song is inspired by "Ol' Man River" and also has versions in the Indian languages Hindi and Bengali.

One song, and pain of humanity of India flows through this song. Who do we blame? Ganga, because she is mother of our civilization and culture.

Bistirna paarore 
Akhonkhya jonore 
Hahakar xuniu 
Nixobde nirobe 
Burha luit tumi 
Burha luit buwa kiyo? 

Noitikotar skhalan dekhiu 
Manabotar patan dekhiu 
Nirlajja alakh bhabe buwa kiyo? 

Gyanbiheen nirakgharor 
Khaadyabiheen nagorikor 
Netribiheenotat nimaat kiyo? 

Xohossro baarikhar unmaadonar 
Abhigyotare pongu manabok 
Xabal xongrami aaru agragami kori nutula kiyo? 

Byakti jodi byaktikendrit
Xamasti jodi byaktitwarohit 
Tene jithil xomaajok nabhanga kiyo? 

Tumiye jodi Brahmare putra 
Xei pitritwa tene naam matra 
Nohole prerona nidiya kiyo? 

Unmatta dhoraare 
Kurukhetrare xoroxajyaake 
Alingan kora 
Bhishmarupi ajashra beerok 
Jogai nutula kiyo? 


Lyrics of ' Ganga Behti ho kyun ' song are written by Pandit Narendra Sharma.

विस्तार है अपार प्रजा दोनों पार करे हाहाकार
निशब्द सदा .. गंगा तुम
गंगा बहती हो क्यूँ?....

तेजस्विनी .. क्यूँ रहीं
तुम निश्चय ही.. चिन्तनहीन
प्राणों मे प्रेरणा देती नहीं क्यूँ ?

O’ man river,
Dat ol’ man river,
He mus’know sumpin’
But don’t say nuthin’
He jes’ keeps rollin’
He keeps on rollin’ along.
