Thanks for the info about Ritwik Ghatag's Megha Dhaka Tara. I'll catch up for sure.
You know what I particularly admired about Ray was the fact that he seems to imply that the so called "bhadralok" may, in fact,be caught up in a cul-de-sac,and be actually a "koopmanduk"(his words).And this coming from the ultimate bhadralok himself!
That's precisely the genius of the man. To understand that there is something rotten about the vessel itself that he's housed in.That we are too narrow, too intolerant of other people and other cultures, too smitten about modern science and technology to realize that it's become a religion itself, narrow and intolerant.Best regards,

|Avinash, Ray is wonderful. I have the apu trilogy but in VHS. If I can get it in digital form I shall let you know. Also, if you get the chance try watching some films by a director named Ritwik Ghatak especially Megha Dhaka Tara. |
