We presently learned from Mr. J. S. Pande and Dr. John Campana that the Khamaj thumri by Amir Khan – posted on the website yesterday – was sung for a film called kshudhit pashan, meaning “hungry stones” – a Tagore story.

John just kindly shared another charmingly dealt Bageshri bandish sung for the same film by Amir Khan and Protima Banerjee:
