A soulful rendition of Jagannatha Kichi Magu Nahin Tote by Ratikant Satpathy, don’t miss


‘Jagannatha Ho, Kichhi Maagu Nahi Tote..’ is written by Late Banamali Das. The genre of this song is ଶରଧାବାଲି ମାଗୁଣି ଜଣାଣ. ‘Janana’ because here the poet is talking to his dearest deity and not just singing praises.

One can feel Banamali’s surrender before the lord as he wishes to be only around Him and invest his five senses towards attaining divine experience :

ଆନ ଦରଶନ ନ ଲୋଡ଼େ ନୟନ – sight

ଶୁଣିବାକୁ କାନ ନ ଇଚ୍ଛଇ ଆନ – sound

ଜିହ୍ୱା ନ ବାଞ୍ଚଇ ଗ୍ରାମ୍ୟଗୀତ ଗାଇବାକୁ – taste

ନାସା ମୋର ତୃପ୍ତି ନ ଲଭଇ – smell

ମୋ ହସ୍ତ ଅଙ୍ଗୁଳି ରାମ ବନମାଳୀ – touch

This song was originally recorded in mid 70s. Composed by Sangita Sudhakara Balakrushna Das, this Janana is one of the finest renditions by Bhajan Samrat Bhikari Bal. This reprise version is created by Ratikant Satpathy as a tribute to the lord. This video marks the debut of Saanvi.
