Bari Theke Paliye

Thank you. I have been resting very well. To wake up to all these difficult choices. It must be horrible to be alive, or the greatest fun. Meanwhile, attended a screening of Ritwik Ghatak's 'Bari Theke Paliye'. Though I thought I might sit squirming throughout after chacha's tacky bulbul song sequence, things turned around after we're shown his getup is a little hoax. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. Though i suspect my loudest chuckles were also in response to the pious subtitles. And though in the end, everything turns out well for 8-year-old runaway, Kanchan, we're noting that he has played some morally ambigious games with the acquaintances he causally strikes up on his roamings; he leaves them as soon at the first sign of trouble. While only once does someone get the better of him; a boy his age who steals his shoes. He does get unseriously beaten up in the coal yard by a pair of adolescents, and i like the flair of their closing line to Kanchan's ingenous q:"You steal??" with,"What did you think, we read the scriptures?"
