BanglaHunt Desk: ‘Ashwin’s Sharadprate…!’ About 1 week before Durgapuja, every morning Birendra Krishna Bhadra still has the custom of listening to Mahalaya in his throat. That voice carries the message of mother's arrival.
On the morning of the day of Mahalaya, he got ‘Mahisasurmardini’ in the throat of Birendrakrishna Bhadra on Reddy. He is one of the best illustrators of all time. So on the eve of the mahalaya we will go back to churning out some memories of those old days.
It has been heard that as long as the mahalaya was broadcast live from the radio office in the morning, cars would come to his house from the radio office at two in the morning. Then he would get in the car and go to the radio office and recite Mahisasurmardini directly in the morning of Mahalaya. However, when the recording was later aired, he was in the radio office at the time.
We usually hear mahalaya on the morning of mahalaya in the throat of Birendrakrishna Bhadra. Mahalaya is the most popular and popular in his voice. However, Mahisasurmardini was not aired in 1986, but 'Durga Durgatiharini' was aired. Instead of Birendrakrishna Bhadra, this mahalaya was heard in the voice of the great hero Uttam Kumar.
According to sources, Uttam Kumar or Birendrakrishna came to Bhadra's house one night before the service. Holding his hand, Uttam Kumar said that day, he did not want to do the show on his own.
Then without discouraging Uttam Kumar, he said, ‘Why don’t you? Do this, of course. There is always something new to do. Don't worry, I'm by your side. '
Birendrakrishna Bhadra sat on the bed of his house in the morning of the service mahalaya and listened to the program. After hearing Uttam Kumar's 'Durga Durgatiharini', he said in his mind that he did well. But the people could accept this new voice. Although Uttam Kumar was a great hero, the people did not like mahalaya in his throat. Therefore, under the pressure of the public, Mahishasurmardini was broadcast on the throat of Birendrakrishna Bhadra on the morning of the 6th.
