Ray and his Women of Strength!

The legendary Satyajit Ray created some of the strongest female protagonists ever on screen…


The thinking of Aditi, Arati or Charulata was way ahead of the times that they represented, the perspective with which they saw the world was startling for their times, they personified conscience of their narratives…

Sarbojaya, Bimala, Anila or Aparna were women of steel in their own unique ways… They stand up to the most tricky situations of life in their own grace and poise…

Monisha, Aparna, Durga, Dayamoyee or Tutul question life in their own unique ways…

Sensitive & Strong – these sensational women have transcended the magical world of Ray and have become part of our lives, of our consciousness, of our cultural equity.. and will always remain so…

Life is a better place with them around…
