    One thought on “Indigo”

    1. I finished this book 2 months back Now, I m a well known procrastinator And I really really did not want to rush into a review for this book I wnated to put some time and effort into writing it Combine both of these and it s taken me 2 months for this Satyajit Ray needs no introduction But for those unaware of his accomplishments, Akira Kurosawa once said about him The quiet but deep observation, understanding and love of the human race, which are characteristic of all his films, have impressed [...]

    2. When I was about 10, a friend lent me an anthology of Satyajit Ray s stories after her praise for his chilling ghost stories got me interested I remember reading about an ill fated attempt at a parapsychological experiment in a rural haunted house and a strange little story about a man who hung himself upside down from a tree like a bat When I found this book, I bought it in hopes of re reading some of those tales The last one is not here, but the first, Anath Babu s Terror is, and is still deli [...]

    3. Indigo s a collection of short stories really weird short stories When I think of fiction stories with a twist, Jeffery Archer always comes to mind I m a huge fan of his short works Cat O Nine Tales, Quiver Full of Arrows and so on and so forth All the stories are surreal, and have this strange unprecedented twist in the end ALWAYS.Indigo is a little like that I m not comparing Jeff Archer and Satyajit Ray not at all But I ll be honest, I ve never read Satyajit Ray before and I never saw this co [...]

    5. Now this is how I like my short stories to be, really short, crisp and with a surprise ending Each of the stories is a real treat with subjects ranging from ghosts, supernatural elements and with some bizarre characters thrown in.Ray is master of this genre I am sure it was his talent to look beyond the mundane that must have got reflected in his writings and movies too Abstract stories are not really my cup of tea I have read short stories of many authors running into several pages and after ha [...]

    7. This was a very interesting read A refreshing change from some of the layered stuff I find myself stuck with But, intriguingly , with each passing story, I noticed the absolute absence of Women characters, in this collection All the characters central, peripheral, tertiary, were all men I have never encountered this I wonder why

    8. First published in 2000, this is a collection of 23 short stories of Satyajit Ray Magic and mystery, both were subjects close to Ray s heart and he had a special penchant for things supernatural This is well reflected in this collection which has some magnificently simple tales told in the limpid and languid style that was Ray s hallmark.Among this book s stories is also a few tales involving Uncle Tarini, another of Feluda s interesting characters besides the otherwise popular Feluda and Prof [...]

    12. Indigo, by the celebrated film maker Satyajit Ray, is a selected collection of his short stories All of the stories have been translated to English from his native tongue, Bengali And all of them have an element of the fantastic, the supernatural and the bizarre The language used is extremely simple and lucid, and will manage to capture the attention of audiences of all ages Each of them spanning hardly than 10 15 pages, they are devoid of lofty and superfluous descriptions The characters are s [...]

    13. There is no word to describe the range and depth of Satyajit Ray s imagination I almost choked from laughter in some stories I recoiled with horror or tension in others Although the English translation does not seem to be perfect, the gists of the stories are very much there to haunt you with their charm, eccentricity, and, at times, eeriness I had no idea that there was an entirely new world somewhere, and that Bengali literature would take you there I first heard of Satyajit Ray when I learned [...]

    14.
