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 recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
