Five unpublished creations of the acclaimed maestro Satyajit Ray will be brought to light next year by Penguin.
The much acclaimed and awarded film-maker, screenwriter, author, lyricist, music composer and graphic artist, has been the sole recipient from India of an honorary Academy Award (Oscar) in “recognition of his rare mastery of the art of motion pictures, and of his profound humanitarian outlook, which has had an indelible influence on filmmakers and audiences throughout the world” (1991).
With recognition streaming in from across the world, including an honorary doctorate from Oxford University, Satyajit Ray has been a multi-faceted persona in the world of literature and films. Many of us grew up with his unique stories, in Bengali or translated, long or short, some bordering on science fiction, some on mysteries and some on political and social drama. A report in The Hindu tells us more about his forthcoming publications.
