মহিষাসুরমর্দিনী – বিরেন্দ্র কৃষ্ণ ভদ্র

Mahalaya (synonyms to Mahisasurmardini by Birendra Krishna Bhadra) is an auspicious occasion that is observed seven days before the Durga Puja, and heralds the advent of Ma Durga, the goddess of supreme power (Shakti). It’s a kind of invocation or invitation to the mother goddess to descend on earth - “Jago Tumi Jago“. This is done through the chanting of mantras  from "Chandi" and singing devotional songs. There is a special type of devotional bengali music called “Agomani” which praise Ma Durga.

Birendra Krishna Bhadra (1905-1991)

Since the early 1930s, Mahalaya has come to associate itself with an early morning radio program called “Mahisasura Mardini” or “The Annihilation of the Demon.” This All India Radio (AIR) program is a beautiful audio montage of recitation from the scriptural verses of “Chandi Kavya”, Bengali devotional Agomani songs, classical music and a dash of acoustic melodrama. The program has also been translated into Hindi set to similar orchestration and is broadcast at the same time for a pan-Indian audience.

This program has almost become synonymous with Mahalaya. For nearly six decades now, the whole of Bengal rises up in the chilly pre dawn hours, 4 am to be precise, of the Mahalaya day to tune in to the “Mahisasura Mardini” broadcast.

Birendra Krishna Bhadra and Mahalaya
Birendra Krishna Bhadra will be always remembered for his superb creation of Mahalaya Radio Program, the magical voice behind the “Mahisasura Mardini.” The legendary narrator recites the holy verses and tells the story of the descent of Durga to earth, in his inimitable style.

Bhadra has long passed away, but his recorded voice still forms the core of the Mahalaya program. In a sonorous, reverberating voice Birendra Bhadra renders the Mahalaya recital for two thrilling hours, mesmerizing every household with the divine aura of his narration, as the Bengalis submerge their souls in quiet moments of prayer.
