A fantastic account.

I can see in my mind’s eye, the drama, the despair, the exposure!

Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, the man who would be West Bengal’s chief minister several years later, and the “culture minister” at that point, behaving shoddily. Interestingly, what you found out way back when on that day, the rest of the people found out decades later. Or they probably knew all along. The bhodroloks! Fake, idiots, who ran the state aground!

Sad, Mrinal-da!

Bloody good writing!
