Bengalis Are Losing Their Mind Over This Brilliant Song on Fish Curry
'Good for my tummy and good for my soul'

Every Bengali is brought up on the staple diet of fish curry aka macher jhol and rice. While the celebrated dish has variations, the good old macher jhol never disappoints. It is that one comfort food that most Bengali falls back on in sickness and health. It is that one dish which every child in a Bengali household is fed (sometimes force- fed) ever since he utters his first words. Taking this eternal love to the internet and the world at large is music composer, producer and singer Sawan Dutta. Dutta, a video blogger, writes and sings on 'anything and everything'. While she has been vlogging about things for a while, it is her latest song, aptly title Macher Jhol that has got Bengalis across the world playing her video on a loop. The song not only explains Dutta's and perhaps the entire Bengal's obsession for fish curry, but also gives a lyrical recipe for those who want to make it at home. A hilarious take on how the fish is for the 'soul' as well as for those suffering from acidity (ombol), Macher Jhol strikes a chord with every Bengali. Watch the video here. You will be humming along in no time!

Twitter has been lauding the brilliant video for its humour and apt lyrics.
