Best Feature Film in English

36 Chowrighee lane is a very sensitive account of a lonely old Anglo Indian lady (Violet) living in Calcutta. In the time of this film India has been independent from the British Raj for about 30 year. A new Indian identity is emerging Calcutta has a cosmopolitan young culture well versed with the west however in the culture Violet has no place she is an outsider. Most of the Anglo Indians left India and settled in USA, UK and Australia.

Violet lived in these changing times her family are dead tends to their graves with care. Her only surviving relative is an infirm brother and she had lost her betrothed to the war.

Yet she struggles on in life with fortitude and without bitterness. She loves the country she was born in and treats everyone with kindness.

As her age creeps up on her she realizes that the new times have no place for her. Her naivety and her emotional weakness is exposed and she is left pondering her future in a large and a ruthless city.

This film serves as an excellent epilogue to the end of the Empire in India. It shows the individual suffering that the ordinary people went through. Especially the anglo Indian after their privileged status was withdrawn by history and some were left to fend for themselves.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
