An Actress in Her Time
An Actress in Her Time
Description
About the Author:

Karuna Banerjee best known for her memorable performance as Sarbajaya the mother in the first two parts of Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy- Pather Panchali and Aparajito- went on to act in a few more films, including two more by Ray, one by Mrinal Sen, and an unfinished piece by Ritwik Ghatak. In her essays and reviews collected here for the first time, she comes through as a perceptive critics of the cinema and TV of her time; a sensitive chronicler of the making of Pather Panchali a different kind of filmmaking altogether; and a liberal thinker reacting to the major social and political events of the last fifty years. She defines her position on these issues with exemplary clarity and an uncompromising honesty. And through it all runs an actress's confident sense of time and space, rich with unusual insights.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
