Pather Panchali - Movie

Finally off the list. Glad I watched it now when I can appreciate the depiction of the human condition, human emotions, limitations and frailties. Ravi Shankar composed the music. Can't forget the scene when the father returns home with gifts. And to prove my theory - another movie based on a shor novel - this one by the prolific Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay who wrote 16 novels and over 200 short stories. With the movie in the hands of such giants like Satyajit Ray, Ravi Shankar and based on Bibhutinath's story one wonders at the talent that abounded those days.
