A collection of stories from across India from writers such as Rabindranath Tagore, Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay, Rajshekhar Basu and Premchand, 14 shows readers how Satyajit Ray was influenced by these stories. The collection includes stories of magic and wonder, involving a rich land-owner who believes his daughter is Kali incarnate, a clerk who stumbles onto a philosopher's stone, a housewife who is overwhelmed by how large the city is and a sage who proclaims he knew Jesus, Plato and the Buddha. These are movies Satyajit Ray transformed into films, printing his name on the silver screen forever.
