Dilip Kumar: The Last Emperor (Charitavali Series)
Dilip Kumar: The Last Emperor (Charitavali Series)
Description
From the Jacket:

This is the story of a man with humble beginnings yet, one who reached out and came away with a fistful of magical stardust. From being dismissed for being a non-actor in his debut film Jwarbhata to creating a small oeuvre that is admired by critics and repeatedly studied by actors to this day, Dilip Kumar has become a legend in his own lifetime. His tumultuous early years saw him crave for love with a yearning bordering on passion but it was as if fate conspired to deny it to him, till the time he found it in Saira Banu, the woman he married. He translated his real ife angst into screen melodrama with such success that it brought him innumerable fans and the sobriquet of "Tragedy King". Although accused of being repetitive in his roles, he ensured that each of the characters was well delineated right down to the last nuance.

Discover Dilip Kumar, a man who won as many hearts as he broke, whose charm and appeal are everlasting and who continues to be a source of inspiration for several of his colleagues and later day actors.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
