In yet another attempt to spread awareness about COVID-19 through music, a video of a Kolkata policeman singing a number from Satyajit Rayâs iconic movie âGoopy Gyne Bagha Byneâ has gone viral.
In a video shared by the Kolkata Police on Twitter, a cop from Rabindra Sarobar Police Station is seen singing âO re Halla Rajar senaâ, with his colleagues joining him as background chorus.
âGoopy-Baghaâ in fight against Corona!

Through the song, the local police are heard emphasising on the importance of staying indoors. They urge the people to abide by the lockdown rules and take precaution against the virus that has claimed over 70 lives in the country so far.
Sharing the song on their Twitter handle, the Kolkata Police wrote: âYet another musical effort by KP personnel at Rabindra Sarobar PS area to enliven another stressful day of fellow citizens with a deftly modified song from the iconic Satyajit Ray movie âGoopy Gyne Bagha Byneââ
Residents can also be seen cheering the police team by clapping and swaying to the beats of the song from their balconies.
This was not the first time, the city police turned to music. They had earlier turned singers with a parody of singer-actor-director Anjan Duttâs song Bela Bose to send out a similar message to the city residents. They sang âWe shall overcomeâ to uplift the spirits of people confined in their homes.
