One dialogue in a Satyajit Ray film sums up the guiding principle of my life. “Kupomunduk hoyo na” (Don’t be the frog of a well), is the advice of the peripatetic Utpal Dutta to the little boy in the film Aguntak (The Stranger), the last film of the maestro. For those like me, who had to overcome the forces of financial constraints all life, it is difficult to be footloose and fancy free. But nevertheless I have travelled quite a lot and would be travelling the rest of my life I hope. Here are some glimpses of those wonderful journeys and places.
