Childhood  Days

Childhood Days


Childhood Days takes readers through legendary storyteller Satyajit Ray's early life-to the people who were around him during his childhood, the places he spent the early years of his life in and to the man we now know as an artist, music composer, director and writer. It displays the lesser known side of Ray-affectionate, tender and humorous, quite different from the serious, isolated man the world came to know him as.
Through Childhood Days, Ray writes eloquently about his initial attempts to understand photography, his experience tasting ice cream for the first time, his discomfort during his school years as a result of his father's and grandfather's fame and what he went through during the shooting of Pather Panchali, his debut and landmark film. Stories funny and heart-warming but true all the same, Childhood Days is a glimpse into the making of a genius.
