Today, the first feature film of the great filmmaker Satyajit Roy - "Pather Panchali" released in Kolkata for the first time. It is a great film in Bengali language. And it is my first choice amongst hundreds of films that I have seen. In this picture, Durga, the elder sister of Apu, is setting hair of her brother with a comb and Sarbajaya, mother of them, is looking over them and enjoying their conversations. This picture, I think, is the most memorable scene of the entire film as they are the key characters of the story and the filmmaker also used the scene as a poster. By this way, the scene became memorable and ever familiar to all those who love good films.
Last Thursday, I went to Singur for check up of my wife. When I enrolled name at the clinic, then I had plenty of time to wait for the doctor. Suddenly I watched glimpses of an adjacent pond with greens on its water. I rushed to the site and seen that the pond was surrounded by dense leafy greens, especially on the opposite bank. I could not resist myself to capture a few shots for the viewers of my blog.
Last Friday, I was going through the footpath of our city - Kolkata. It was a cloudy morn. Just about to rain. Road vehicles were passing through. Then I saw the hill of garbages beside the boundary wall of a famous heritage building - a memento of British Raj. My city has been facing critical problem of banning old vehicles by court order. So there are no vehicle since a month to take over the garbages. And thus public health is being endangering. Pedestrians are passing the spot with handkerchief on their nose.
