FAKIR LALAN SAIN
O My Silly, Silly, Silly Mind!
Trancreated by Sudipto Chakraborty
LALAN is the original seer of those baul-fakir thinkers who are in relentless search of alternative form of social, religious and cultural practices, still active and pervasive in either parts of Bengal. Lalan’s songs, which elaborate his theory and philosophy of life, are equally popular to rural and urban people as well. This book contains the texts of only 25 songs written by LALAN, transcreated from original Bengali Sri Sudipto Chakraborty, who had also translated wonderfully a couple of other books published by Monfakira. Ratan Khanna has captured some of the self-devoting moments of the modern successors of Lalan through the lens during his free roaming in this world. A selected few from those along with the songs may be attributed as our deepest respect to that flowing stream of universal humanist consciousness which defies all the manifestations of social evils.
