Re: Fw: There live a genius called Satyajit Ray

Thanks, Bhaiya, but the bloomer in grammar in the Subject itself makes me cringe.I don't understand why I have to be in such a tearing hurry.
                                          In Agantuk, the director seems to say that the so called"civilized society" is, more appropriately, trapped into a "koopmanduk".I t doesn't have much respect for peoples and cultures other than it's own. And so beguiled is it my modern science and technology, that it makes fun of the tribal ways of life, as if no science and technology exists in their life.For eg, two kinds of snow,one opaque and the other transparent,go to make an igloo.That's technology enough.The main protoganist is an anthropologist with extensive field studies throughout the world and is extremely broad and cosmopolitan. Hallmarks,I suppose, of a "civilized" person  rather than a one point focus on materialism and status quo alone.
            Check out my blog too,I think it's a wholesome food for thought and, I hope,action.Once awakened all of us,individually and collectively, will move mountains. There's too much at stake here to lose out because of our smugness and laziness.

This is the tragedy of modern living.Geniuses are terrible marketeers.Therefore I've known Ray only through Shantranj Ke Khiladi. But today I watched Agantuk, and  am now better exposed to Ray's genius, and the Apur Trilogy now I'll surely buy to absorb more of Life.Yes, that's true. The more we live in love, the more LIFE comes to us unannounced, the richer our life becomes.
                                            Aganuk is about the return of a prodigal, a genius who has topped in Matric, Intermediate and BA. Then his grandmother gives himRs 3,000(around 1950) saying he's brought glory to the family. With this fortune he gets a chance to do his own things, becoming a kind of "oddball" for the supposedly "civilized" society that we claim proud inheritance of.
                                               My sense is that we should not be smug about our civilization. The world will change beyoud your comprehension in the next 50 years. Just be full of love and open yourself, and you'll be absolutely safe and secure in these most challenging and dynamic times.But those who are "koopmanduk" and cocooned in their own small spheres, will find the going tough. 
Best regards,
