Still in shock.. cannot digest the news..
He was an institution in himself.. his thoughts, vision made pple think..
loved his movies .. unishe april, dosar, khela.. utsab ..
Loved  'gaaner opare'- the teleserial  on Tagore ..scripted by him..Sheer magic!

Will miss him.. he had  still so much to offer.. he wanted to work on a documentary on tagore and his women , work on mahabharata.. .
I will miss his personal columns in 'Robbar'..a bengali journal..
all his interviews, talk shows full of wisdom..
 I will miss him on his deep understanding of tagore.. 
i will miss him for my own interests...
bhalo thakben Ritu da..
