When Bhaktivinoda Thakura conducted Nama Hatta programs, he would compose songs in glories of such programs. One of such songs was this song. Boro Sukher Khabor Gai, also known as the Dalalera Gita (“Song of the broker”), is a beloved song of many devotees. Based on Raga Bhimphalasi, the melody is a very simple one that is very easy to follow. At the end of every verse, the words “khoda nitai” comes up.
