Bistirno Parore is considered as one of the epical composition of Dr Bhupen Hazarika and one of the most
powerful lyrics ever written in Assamese. It's a clear tribute to mighty river of Brahmaputra that flows thorugh the
fertile land of Assama. It is the lifeline of Assam and has witnessed the complete history of the region. Dr Hazarika
has avalanche of the humanity in the society and appealing against it in this immortal song. The music of song is influenced by Paul Robeson's
'Old man River' (only the first line of the song).
This song is later translated into hindi by Gulzar as "Ganga" and also into Bengali. It is considered as a milestone composition in both
the languages too.
