This song from the drama Prakritir Protishodh was one of the favourite songs of Rabindranath. A number of references can be seen in different books written by several writers. In the 209th letter dated 16th April 1895, from Chhinnapatrabali, written by the poet to Indira Devi at Satara reads -

... Yesterday at Jyo (Jyotirindranath)'s apartment A (Abhi) came up with an Esraj. It was raining outside and wind whistling through the leaves. I had started with 'Bhara Baadara ...' followed by 'Bnaashite Dekechhe Ke ...' . It had been a great ambience with my voice doing really well - my heart impregnated with delight accompanied by the indulgent monsoon that had newly set in. Whether this fascinating world of passionateness and hunting melody, I asked myself, was simply an apparent, noetic entity? Isn't there anything similar to it anywhere? Is it only a mirage?

Within a couple of weeks in a separate letter on 24th April he had expressed -

...The most natural instinct of human being, I think, is to harmonize its life through a strong devotion. Not that it is universally achievable - some are fit for the routine jobs of the society to be performed in isolation. Although, the desire remains largely focussed on the grand perpetual harmony. That is why it sometimes make me feel like - 'Aamay Bnaashite Dekechhe Ke ...'.

Shailajaranjan Majumdar, the famous teacher of Rabindra Sangeet had written in his book Jaatarapather Aanondogaan (page 96) -

... 'Gurudev' was very much fond of this song. He had taught me the song with a lot of care and often he used to ask me whether I still remember the song. ...

In this connection I would like to mention about a peculiar incident - at Shantiniketan 'Gurudev' was teaching the song to Indulekha Ghosh for a programme at Singha-sadan. For the first part of the song he was listening to her. He could not refrain himself from singing. The result was that it was him who continued to sing the song while the student was stuck.

Transliteration in English

Mori lo mori, aamay banshite dekechhe ke.
Bhabechilam ghore robo, kothao jabo na-
Oi -je bahire bajilo banshi, bolo ki kori
Shunechi kon kunjobone jomunatire
 Shajher balye baje banshi dhir somire-
Ogo, tora janish jodi amay poth bole de.
Dekhi ge tar mukher hashi,
Tare phuler mala porie aasi,
Tare bole aasi  tomar banshi
Aamar praner bejechhe.
