Kuri-ta bochhor kete gelo

On this day, twenty years ago, in the city of Calcutta (now Kolkata) died Satyajit Ray. His chronic heart ailment and associated complications took his life. He left behind grieving millions, not to speak of his own distraught family.
During the course of these two decades, Indian cinema has come a long way. At one time, the Great Master is reported to have opined that Hindi cinema showed an India that did not exist. If he would have lived to see films like Prakash Jha's GANGAAJAL , to name one among many, he would most certainly have revised his opinion. Most importantly, Satyajit Ray believed that the difference between "art" and "commercial" cinema was artficially created; a film was an art form but must be made commercially viable. Many of today's filmmakers in India have succeeded in obliterating the difference between the two genres.
