‘Gourleela-r Bazaar-e Obaak Jai Herey’ is a cryptic song by Ananta Gossain where an elephant crosses a needle-eye, seeds of Jamun grow inside mangoes, the bazaar of Gour’s Leela sits inside a swan’s egg and a corpse laughs seeing the same. The meanings of these may be for the initiated to comprehend, but the lyrics and the music give the song a surreal nature where the listeners are transcended to a realm of thought-provoking sensations.
