In keeping with its spirit of presenting news through music, Bengali band Jowar has come out with a song pertaining to the controversy between Sourav and the national selectors.

The Bengali song talks about the controversies surrounding Ganguly's exclusion from the Indian team recently while exuding confidence that the former captain will soon regain the past glory.

Lead vocalist, lyricist and composer of Jowar, Gautam Brahma said, "News die at the end of the day. Our aim is to keep important social messages alive in the minds of people through our music."

The band has covered contemporary issues like the Bihar elections scenario, Saddam Hussein issue, the Naxalite movement and songs on natural disasters relating to Tsunami or the volcanic eruption at Barren Islands. They also present songs that represents different facades of life and music.

Jowar has been inspired to take up this unique initiative of singing songs related to the current affairs when police sergeant Bappi Sen was killed in Kolkata by anti-social elements on December 31, 2003.

The song reflects the mood of the entire nation and more importantly Kolkatans in particular.

It claims to be the only band in the country which presents news through music.
