Written by poet Batakrishna Dey, this lilting song’s music was composed by Sailen Mukherjee (Sailen Mukhopadhyay) and sung by Nirmala Misra; choreographed in the Odissi classical Indian dance style by Sreyashi Dey. This song paints a picture of a melancholy evening in an Indian village. When dusk descends with lengthening misty shadows, and the darkness of nightfall approaches, birds fly back to their nests. The village ladies light the ritual lamps on the sacred tulsi altar. A solitary flutist plays his soulful tunes exuding the pathos of his passion for his faraway soulmate. In this backdrop of the setting sun, the poet pens his thoughts, portraying his pain of separation and pining for union with his loved one. This song was an instant hit, creating a threefold record when it was published. This song was sung by a debutante young singer in her teens, Nirmala Misra who became one of the top singers in her later career. Interestingly, this song was composed by, again, a first time music director Sailen Mukherjee, who after this maiden venture, became immensely popular.
