The music room by Sachindranath Biswas( Visual )

12 editions published in 2011 in Bengali and English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evokes the crumbling opulence of the world of a fallen aristocrat desperately clinging to his way of life. His greatest joy is the music room in which he has hosted lavish concerts over the years, now a shadow of its former vivid self. An incandescent depiction of the clash between tradition and modernity, and a showcase for some of India's most popular musicians of the day
The Music Room by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

64 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biswambhar Roy, a zamindar (or feudal landlord), is the last in the line of landed aristocrats in British India. His ancestors lived lavishly but all Roy inherited is quickly disappearing in a pile of debts. But Roy's pride is unshakeable and he continues pawning his family jewels to pay for grand ceremonies involving musicians. Even when he loses his family in a tragic accident, and all his wealth, he still contemplates plans for another celebration. Again Subrata Mitra's cinematography is awe-inspiring, juxtaposing vast desolate landscapes against sumptuous intimate detail. As Ray said: "The feudal lords were patrons of music. Our classical musicians owe a great deal to these aristocrats who had a deep understanding of their art. The nouveau riche invite the same musicians but without appreciating them. I made The Music Room in 1958 to preserve the last vestiges of an art I knew was disappearing

The Home and the World( Visual )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a romantic-triangle tale and a philosophical take on violence in times of revolution, The Home and the World, set in early twentieth-century Bengal, concerns an aristocratic but progressive man who, in insisting on broadening his more traditional wife's political horizons, drives her into the arms of his radical school chum. Satyajit Ray had wanted to adapt Rabindranath Tagore's classic novel to the screen for decades. When he finally did in 1984, he fashioned a personal, exquisite film that stands as a testament to his lifelong love for the great writer. Additional Reading:

Ghare-bāire = Home and the world by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

16 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in Bengali and English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a Rabindranath Tagore story, it is 1905, and the British in their policy of divide-and-rule, are creating an artificial rift between the Hindus and the Muslims. The Indian intellectual middle class, is violently opposed to this policy, giving rise to widespread terrorist activity and boycott of British goods. When opposition leader, Sandip, visits his friend, Nikhil, he is attracted to Bimala, the latter's wife. Nikhil realizes what has happened. He knows that Sandip is driven more by a lust for power than any genuine patriotic motive. Communal riots soon break out and while Sandip runs off to safety, Nikhil prepares to meet the hostile mob. As Ray said: 'The Home and the World is a triangular love story. And the husband is really Tagore. There are essays by Tagore on this terrorist movement, and some of the things he wrote, even exact sentences, are put into the mouth of the main character. Nikhil, the husband represents Tagore's attitude to the terrorist movement and its ultimate futility. It's a very valid viewpoint, very rational. It was really a middle-class movement with no connection to the lower strata of society at all. So ultimately it just fizzled out, and in other cases it turned into very violent riots between the Hindus and the Muslims. Tagore withdrew from the movement and came out with the essays, and then four or five years later, in 1912, he produced this novel.'
