Sandhya Mukhopadhyay | Know the history of the famous song esho ma laxmi dgtl
“Come Ma Lakshmi, sit in the house. Stay in my lighted room. On the day of Kojagari Lakshmi Puja, this song is on the lips of Bengalis. These two lines are not the beginning of the song. It’s the second row. The beginning of the song is: “I brought my mother home playing conch, I sit burning fragrant incense. I lit the lamp to welcome you, stay in my lighted house.’
Although Bengalis are used to hearing this song sung by Sandhya Mukhopadhyay, the singer of this generation has also adopted Aditi Munshi’s singing. Again, the famous housewives of Bengal also hum this song. But what is the message of this song? Does the magic of the melody support this song so much?
Many believe that this song was recorded by Sandhya in a Puja album. But it’s actually a movie song. The Bengali film ‘Dabi’ was released in 1974. Dhirendranath Gangopadhyay was the director. Dhirendranath died in 1978 a few years after the film’s release. “Daabi” featured Asit Varan, Vikas Roy, Samit Bhanj. There was Moushumi Chatterjee, Sandhya Rani.

The film had six songs apart from “Eso Maa Lakshmi, Boso Ghere”. Hemant Mukhopadhyay, Aarti Mukhopadhyay, Shyamal Mitra sang without Sandhya. The composer was Hemant’s younger brother, Amal Mukhopadhyay. The song was written by Miltu Ghosh. During a conversation with Anandabazar Online, artist Haimanti Shukla recognized lyricist Miltu. He said, “Very good man. Long time without contact. I heard sick. I also sang many songs written by him. In fact, this song became famous in Sandhyadi’s voice, but the importance of words is also very important. In fact, the desire to cover the mother at home in the lyrics of the song is also a big reason why it has become timeless.”
Aditi says the same. Currently, Trinamool MLA vocalist Aditi says, “I sing this song many times. Also at Lakshmi Puja house. In fact, there is so much devotion, so much longing mixed in the lyrics of this song that “they become the words of the heart. It seems to everyone. That’s why this song has been in people’s mouths for five decades. Audiences want to listen to me too.” Is that the only reason a movie song turned religious? Aditi said: “In fact, it is the wealth of Bengal. There are many such emotions involved in Golden Age songs. It’s one of them. Such songs keep songwriters, composers, artists alive through their own creations.
