Satyajit Ray Death Anniversary: Satyajit Ray, one of India's finest storytellers who may have done it all, was also an exceptionally gifted author. His name has several hyphenated prefixes. As a writer, he provided outstanding storytelling in his stories as a filmmaker. UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day is also celebrated on April 23. Take a look at some of Satyajit Ray's best books, which have been converted into Ray, a Netflix anthology series about him.

Indigo

Satyajit Ray's Indigo, a short story collection, is one of his best novels. It is about regular people taking over larger-than-life and overwhelming circumstances. Indigo is one of those books that lives forever because of its unique narratives, supernatural themes, and adventure. The storytelling presentation is unrivalled since no two stories are the same.

Bonkubabur Bondhu

Manikda's interest in science fiction was a less well-known aspect of his personality. For his grandfather, Upendra Kishore Ray's periodical Sandesh, he penned Bonkubabur Bondhu. In 1913, he imagined a world in which aliens from outer space arrived on Earth with extraordinary abilities.

Feluda Samagra

Satyajit Ray's Feluda Samagra is a masterpiece. It's safe to say that if you're a Bengali or a literature fan, it's one of the things you should be aware of. Soumitra Chatterjee, the late actor, played the role in the Feluda film series with such brilliance that it lives on for all eternity. Feluda is thought to have been written just for Chatterjee.

Even now, minor snippets from Feluda's story are regarded as enormous pop culture references, such as his location, 21 Rajani Sen Road, Ballygunge, Kolkata, his habit of calling his nephew and the story's narrator, Topshe, and his cigarette, Charminar.

Childhood Days

Satyajit Ray's autobiography was called "Childhood Days." In this one, he tackled his life with a sense of humour, compassion, and affection. He discussed his childhood in Calcutta and how it impacted his mentality, which he used to take on the world with a genius for art.

Some of the books that discussed Ray's creative talent include:

  • Professor Shonku
  • Our Films, Their Films
  • My Years With Apu
  • The Unicorn Expedition, And Other Fantastic Tales Of India

Apart from gaining international fame and attention through his films, the majority of his writings are timeless classics.
