Mrinal Sen: The Survivor (Charitavali Series)
Mrinal Sen: The Survivor (Charitavali Series)
Description
From the Jacket:

His films are sensitive and realistic portrayals of ordinary people. For director Mrinal Sen, films are a medium through which he has commented, criticized and empathized with people and their daily dilenumas.

A pioneer of the parallel cinema in India, Mrinal Sen offered a refreshing change from the escapist fairy tales of mainstream films. His films are always a very personal and passionate response to the world around him. Created with a clear eyed honesty, these sensitive portraits of people remain with the viewer long after the films are over.

In this book discover the mind and imagination behind classics such as Bhuvan Shome, Ek Din Pvatidin and Akaaler Sandhane. Often narrated in the thoughtful words of the director himself.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
