This Odia adaptation of the most popular song of Suman Chattopadhyay (Kabir Suman), “Tomake Chai” (HMV: 1992) is a musical tribute to him and his connection with Odisha (especially Cuttack , his birthplace) and the Odia language (which he picked up and uttered first before learning Bengali). Songs of Suman Chattopadhyay, popularly known as Sumaner Gaan, redefined and revolutionized modern Bengali music in the early 90s. Also known as the Bob Dylan of Bengal, Suman has written, composed, arranged and sung around 800 songs..

Nijhum andhakare tumaku chahein
Rati bhor hele mu tumaku chahein
Sakalara kaisore tumaku chahein
Sandhyara abakase tumaku chahein.

Baisakhi jhadare mu tumaku chahein
Asadhara meghare mu tumaku chahein
Srabanare srabanare mu tumaku chahein
Akalabodhane mu tumaku chahein.

Hajare barshara Cuttack rastare
Puruna o nua muha misigala bele
Aganita manishara klanta pada pate
Ajana chhutira chhuan tume dela mote.

Manishara klantire tumaku chahein
Topaye shantire tumaku chahein
Bahudura chali asi tumaku chahein
Ei jiban bhalapai tumaku chahein.

Chhaka pakha gali moda dokan katire
Sahara ki mafsal etthare setthare
Station ki bus stand Kathajodi kule,
Achinha drawing room chinha chinha ghare
Seja ki takia kantha puruna chadare
Thanda sitara rati ghodi haba pare
Adha kantha choukatha sapa panposha
Hasaraga abhimana jhagada aposha
Tumaku chahein.

Gote cup chaha re mu tumaku chahein
Dahana ki baan pate mu tumaku chahein
Dekhe ki na dekhe mu je tumaku chahein
Kahi nathiba kathare tumaku chahein.

Akshaya Mohanty ra gitara bhitare
Hathat akhire pada kabita bahire
Abodhya kabitare Thumri Khayale
Slogan re poster re pacheri dehare,
Saroj Bal ra chhapa Time Pass bahi
Bibhue Kishore ra gita chhaka bazarare
Bhuli hei jauthiba Balakrushna Dash
Cuttack Radio ra puruna gitare
Tumaku chahein.

Anunaya binayare tumaku chahein
Bedanara aratire tumaku chahein
Dalil dastabijre tumaku chahein
Lajjare dwidhare tumaku chahein.

Adhikara maguthiba prakhara dabire
Ratisara ankuthiba jananka chhabire
Marjita kabitara chhanda bhashare
Gadyara juktire banchiba ashare,
Srenihina samajara chira basanare
Badaliba samayara bhara chetanare
Dwidhare dwandare puni jagarane
Swargara sidi chadha sayane sapane,–
Bikkhabare biplabare tumaku chahein
Bhisana asambhe tumaku chahein
Shanti ashantire tumaku chahein
Ei mo bibhrantire tumaku chahein.

Prathamata mu tumaku chahein
Dwitiyata mu tumaku chahein
Trutiyata mu tumaku chahein
Sesha parjyanta mu tumaku chahein.
