About the Book

Nabarupa chronicles the experience of her grandaunt. For her, Surama is the unsung hero, whose story she finds inspiration in. While a lot has been written on the life and work of the filmmaker (including two books by Ms. Ghatak), this photobook will be a first to present a photo based narrative about Ghatak.
