Bob Dylan’s "Blowin' in the Wind" in Bengali "Kotota Path".

As you know "Blowin' in the Wind" is a song written by Bob Dylan and released on his album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan in 1963. Although it has been described as a protest song, it poses a series of questions about peace, war and freedom. The refrain "The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind" has been described as "impenetrably ambiguous: either the answer is so obvious it is right in your face, or the answer is as intangible as the wind".
 In 1999, the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2004, it was ranked #14 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

Many would know that due to its amazing lyrics & powerful message the song "Blowin' in the Wind" has been covered by hundreds of artists including the likes of Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley , Stevie Wonder & many others. 

It was a nice revelation to find that there has been a Bengali translation of the song recorded by popular Bengali blues singer Suman Chatterjee. It goes "Kotota Path" ("How Many Roads") in Bengali.
