About the CD

AGANTUK

The Stranger An well-off Indian family is paid an unexpected, and rather unwanted, visit by a man claiming to be the woman’s long lost uncle. The initial suspicion with which they greet the man slowly dissolves as he regales them with stories of his travels, tales that are at odds with their conventional middle class perspective on the world.

Ghare-Baire

The Home And The World
When the movie opens, a woman is recalling the events that molded her perspective on the world. Years ago, her husband, a wealthy Western-educated landowner, challenged tradition by providing her with schooling, and inviting her out of the section in which married women were kept, to the consternation of more conservative relatives. Meeting her husband’s visiting friend from college, a leader of an economic rebellion against the British, she takes up his political cause, despite her husbands warnings. As the story progresses, the relationship between the woman and the visitor becomes more than platonic, and the political battles, pitting rich against poor and Hindu against Moslem, turn out not to be quite as simple as she had first thought.

Ganasatru

(An Enemy of the People)
This has to be one of Ray’s lesser inspired works. He has made minimal effort to adapt the script of a play into an entertaining movie. The story, like all his movies, depicts struggle against social stigmas. But its dull. The characters fail to generate any bonding with the audience. The pace is extremely slow and the dialog stilled. This could be because Ray was cautious of the sensitive issue being dealt with in the movie. He may right. The collusion of media and bureaucracy exposed by the movie is admirable. Bottomline, I would rather watch the same performance as a play instead of the move format.

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.
