"Not to have seen the cinema of Ray means existing in the world without seeing the Sun or the Moon" - Akira Kurosawa Satyajit Ray was (still he is) one of the greatest film directors of all time. He also was a novelist, a painter, a short story writer and also a composer of music that he used is his films. He was also a pianist. One of the most versatile genius in the entire human history -

Yes you are so very right.......... one of the most(if not, THE most) creative person in the entire history of mankind......his films were so simple yet thought provoking. But sometimes it pains me to see, that many of the Indians do not even know his name, but they do the names of mediocre bollywood actors, who are not even worth the dust of his feet.

Yes you are right but he is well known over the world. It's a shame that the whole world respects him but Indians cannot.

Yes buddy I knew that....Spielberg even copied the description of E.T. which was originally thought about by Ray...... we always complain that we Indians only copy from the west.........that is not true, they copy too, they copy from unkown films(japenese, italian, german) so we dont get to know about it.............. a man of high calibre like spielberg copied from Ray... this just proves his exceptional talent.
