Katha Manabi - Mallika Sengupta is no more!!!

I am in the 'blue' zone today... can't take it any more... since the beginning of this year 2011, I have been writing  'obituaries' here quite often, which involved people close to my Pintu Bhattacharya, Geeta Dey, Ramaprasad Banik, Suchitra Mitra, Utpalendu Chowdhury...the list is quite long... and today once again I am here to write my blog in the memory of one of my favorite poet of Contemporary Bengali poetry Mallika Sengupta, who passed away today, the 28th May 2011, after a long spell of suffering. 

A breast cancer survivor, she was under treatment since Oct. 2005. 2728senguptaand passed away,leaving her partner poet Subodh Sarkar and a young son behind.

May her soul rest in Peace!

404 - Error Not Found...!!!

404errornotfoundmoviepo A prime medical college... A renowned Professor and a new student Abhimanyu who defies

his seniors and objects to the on-going practice ragging.

A secret that is locked forever...........

Professor Aniruddh is impressed with Abhimanyu's rationality and tenacity when he decides to
dispel all rumours and moves into a room that has been locked away for years now...
What follows is an intriguing story about a Professor who denies the paranormal and believes
only in Science, and a bright young student who battles with his conflict of illusion and
Is what Abhimanyu sees real or is his mind playing tricks?
Is the Professors conviction that 'it's all in the mind' enough to convince the once
rational Abhimanyu that what he sees is not real...or is it???

Do you believe what you see......or ........see what you believe? A movie by Prawal Raman ("Darna Mana Hai" fame)!

A delightful filmy experiment!
