Rocket Mondal says,” Salil Da’s ganasangeet always has enough of  motivational elements. During this lockdown time which is more than a two months time many of us started getting nervous of losing jobs, mentally depressed so on a sudden this song came to my mind.I called all the fellow musicians and expressed my plan to go for an instrumental cover of the legendary song. All of the noted musicians came together from India and Bangladesh and recorded it.I was fortunate to work with Salil da. His songs have an immense lyrical values and his mass songs are still relevant.”

The song got released in the album “Ghum Bhangar Gaan” and after so many years it has been recreated by so many noted musicians to spread out positivity. The song tells about the journey of life, not to stop.A song with an eternal massage about life.
