Bolpur to Bombay - Kartik Das Baul and Rathijit - Oct 8th

The origin of Bauls is not known with any great degree of accuracy, but the word 'Baul' appeared in Bengali texts as early as the 15th century. Scholars, however, maintain that it is not clear when the word took its musical significance, as opposed to a synonym for the word 'mad'

The Baul movement was at its peak in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Today, one comes across the occasional Baul with his ektara and begging bowl, singing across the far-flung villages of rural Bengal. Travelling in trains and attending village fairs are good ways to see Bauls
sing about life. The Ganga plays an appropriate backdrop for this fair in Kenduli town near Bolpur, the native land of the Bauls
