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.

Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
Usha, USA
Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
