Gautam Chowdhury’s fantastic site http://www.salilda.com is a site where I have been spending a fair amount of time discovering the different aspects of the genius of Salil.

One section I have been listening to are his mass awakening songs. A revolutionary himself and associated with IPTA, Salil wrote and composed many songs for the streets. Gautam has pieced them all together here.

Specifically check out the song about the 1946 Naval Uprising Dheu Uthchhe and the first song on the list Uru Taka Taka which Salilda later reprised in Do Bigha Zameen.
