The book of all books. You know you are Bengali when you grew up reading and memorizing this. Other people have their Quran, Bible, Torah and so on. I have my Gitabitan; this is my holy scripture. :)

The book forms a collection of all songs written by Rabindranath Tagore and is called 'Gitabitan' meaning "Garden of songs". It contains an important part of currently-extant historical materials pertaining to Bengali musical expression. The six major parts of this book are Puja (worship), Prem (love), Prakriti (Nature) and Bichitra (Diverse), Swadesh (Patriotism) and Aanushthanik (Celebration).
