Their journey of love through music
In one of the interviews with The Telegraph, Piya and Anupam revealed that Anupam’s music and songs played a major role in their journey. Anupam has repeatedly admitted that he writes his songs with his wife in mind. The male version of the song, Bawshonto Ese Geche (Spring has arrived) from the film, Chotushkone has lines that suggest their first meeting.
As Piya said in the interview:
“The lines ‘Ei bawshonte koyek bochhor aage / Tomay prothom dekhechhilam aami / Hetechhilam bhutta mather pothe / Shei bawshonto ekhon bhishon dami…’ (This spring, a few years ago, I saw you for the first time., This spring is too precious to me), talk about our first meeting. Of course, no one knows the meaning of pot of bhutta mather. You just have to translate it. It means Cornfield Road (laughs out loud). So that was our private joke until now … everyone thought of it as a poetic thing. It casts a nice imagery. I think it’s one of his best songs and it’s one of my favorites. ”
Piya had mentioned a song that her husband Anupam Roy had written as a letter to her:
“Ure Jaak (Fly Away) is basically his first letter to me in song form. He wrote the song with me in mind almost seven-eight years ago, when we used to email each other. He sent me the lyrics and the mp3 version of the song. I was pretty upset when I first heard the song. I wouldn’t want to say anything more about the song because it speaks for itself. ”
She mentioned another song in that interview, Tarar Motorcycle (Like Stars), from one of Anupam’s albums, which depicts their relationship.
“A few lines of the song ring true, and that might predict something with precision. ‘Bhebe dekho onnyo shohor, kingba porer bochhor, buker bhetore ekhono ekhono jhor …’ (Think of different cities, or next year it there is still a storm inside my heart.) We live in different cities now, and now I ask him how did he know that. ”
