A Tribute to Satyajit Ray.the Inner Eye
Description: Every year 2nd May comes with a reminiscence of the doyen of Indian filmdom,Late Satyajit Roy about whom, unfortunately,the Nation is neither considerably vocal, nor verbal, that she ought to be.The unbridgable gap between "the home and the world"(Ghare-Baire)was done away with by this movie-maestro with the creation of "Song of the Little Road"(Pather Panchali). "The Unvanquished"(Aparajito) went on with his "Philosorher's Stone"(Parash Pathar)and founded "The Golden Fortess"(Sonar Kella)on the arena of Indian movie-making. With humble apology, one may observe, "The Branches and Twigs"(Sakha Prasakha) that infest the present world of Indian "good"films has its stalk and barrel from this man.
Once, Akira Kurosawa remarks "The quiet but deep observation, understanding and love of the human race which are characterstics of all his films,have impressed me greatly"
