The daughters of Nature,
created out of Nature's own elements, are glorious in their beauty and
innocence. They are the seekers of knowledge and truth, and harmony
They play with the delicate flowers and other gentle creatures of the
wild. Together they sing in rapturous praise of the author of this
beautiful earth. As they wander through the forest during their
journey, by the quiet streams and magnificent meadows -- the blue
mountains and tall trees shield them from all evil. Gentle forces of
nature wrap them in a capsule of love, kindness, honesty and piety.
From the dark corners of
the forest, a red finger for temptation beckons them into a narrow
alley! All of a sudden
the sky is overcast with evil clouds. Fiery arms of anger leap at them
and jealousy claws at their hearts. They plunge into an abyss of
deceit. Vengeance flashes
it's teeth like lightning and violence engulfs them in throes of
They raise their arms in
despair and call Mother Nature for help.

"How much of the tradition of Bengali music can you pack into a single album. For Alak Roychoudhury this was quite a challenge and he lives up it commendably in the CD Collection (KI JADU BANGLA GANE)." - The Statesman
"Fascinating was the performance of Alak Roychoudhury who tried to recall the lyrical & notational richness of Bengali light songs composed and popularized in the sixties. His rendering of a Mukundadas number was specially remarkable".
