Actor filmmaker make-up artist painter dialogue and scriptwriter These were just some of the roles Dhirendranath Ganguly fondly remembered as DG and better known as the father of Bengali cinema took on Now 37 years after he passed away a book chronicles the life of the filmmaker Written by his daughter Monica Guha Thakurta a former actor the book titled DG and Bengali Films (IMH Publishers Rs 150) captures Ganguly’s life and his relationship with his daughter It was released earlier this week by Jawhar Sircar CEO Prasar Bharti at Delhi’s India International Centre (IIC) For someone making films in the early 20th century Ganguly was nothing short of a movie enterprise He directed produced and acted in Bengali cinema’s first silent film Bilet Pherat or England Returned (1921) the story of an Indian who returns to the country after living in the UK for a few years “The film was his attempt to reflect the socio-political changes taking place in the country Nobody attempted to document his work before And the people who knew my father have already passed away” says Thakurta 86 The 250-page book in Bengali chronicles DG’s journey in cinema Born into a highly educated family in Barisal Bangladesh and the youngest of four siblings DG faced ridicule from his family as he pursued a dream in the arts “His family alienated him since he decided to pursue a career in the arts That was considered taboo at the time” says Thakurta Mentored by Rabindranath Tagore DG became his disciple in Shantiniketan and showed an interest in painting “He once clicked a black-and-white portrait of Tagore against his wishes He then painted over that photograph using water colours and presented it to Tagore It was so nice that Tagore accepted it as a present” says Thakurta who acted in two films Path-Bhule (1940) and Daabi (1943) opposite her father as a child artiste The book comprises testimonials from people who knew DG well such as Birendranath Sircar the founder of New Theatres Calcutta; and Premandro Mitra latea Bengali poet and novelist Though she vaguely recalls her father’s as an actor she describes him more from a personal point of view as someone who was “witty and had a knack for dressing up well” In his three decade-long career in Bengali cinema DG made 49 films in most of which he commented on the political mood in the country at the time Very little is known about DG and most copies of his films do not exist Except for a 1979 documentary by Kalpana Lajmi titled DG Movie Pioneer there is not much historical record of him A determined filmmaker it was a conversation with yesteryear Bengali actors Devaki Bose and Pramathesh Barua that had DK sit outside the entrance of their studio in Kolkata for days dressed as a beggar The duo was confident that no amount of make-up would conceal the real identity of a person “For days neither the guard nor Barua and Bose could recognise Ganguly Eventually they were forced to acknowledge their error in judgment” says Thakurta Ganguly loved the art of disguise and often dressed up as a woman to display his make up skills since men had to mostly portray female characters in films during that time He even wrote books in Bengali about make-up such as Bhaber Abhibyekti Rang Beyrong Biye Bhalobasha and Phoolshojya “The Calcutta police hired baba briefly to teach them the art of make up and disguise But he left due to political reasons” says Thakurta For one of his plays titled Aleek Babu DG dressed up as a 22-year-old even though he was 80 in real life In 1974 he was awarded the Padma Bhushan and two years later the Dada Saheb Phalke Award for his contribution to cinema “I think it came a little too late” she says For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Tech

download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsThe tug of war over the best way to ensure the safety of nanotechnology is nearly over The Bush Administration has lost ground Its longtime critics in the US Congress academia and nongovernmental organizations have gained ground The two sides have fought to a standoff for years over the strategy the federal government should take to ensure that the environmental health and safety (EHS) risks of nanotechnology are adequately addressed Administration officials have long maintained that the agencies funding the research—such as the US National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—are best qualified to set their own research priorities to ensure nanotech safety Critics meanwhile have argued that this leads to a duplication of efforts and gaps where no agency is willing to pick up the ball What’s needed they argue is an overall vision and plan for how to get there and to come up with the money to do so The House Science and Technology Committee passed a bill earlier this year reauthorizing the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) which coordinates federal agencies participating in nanotech research Within the bill were add-ons that pushed much of the critics’ agenda including a proposal to appoint an EHS czar But the Administration pushed back on the czar among other things and with the economic chaos this fall the bill never made it through Last year the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office which oversees day-to-day operations of NNI asked the US National Research Council (NRC) for an independent review of NNI’s EHS strategic plan This morning NRC came down squarely in the critics’ camp In its report the NRC committee concludes that NNI’s plan suffers from serious weaknesses and represents essentially an ad hoc collection of research priorities from the 25 federal agencies that make up its membership "The current plan catalogs nano-risk research across several federal agencies but it does not present an overarching research strategy needed to gain public acceptance and realize the promise of nanotechnology" says David Eaton an environmental and occupational health scientist at the University of Washington Seattle who chaired the committee that wrote the report "It shows we haven’t been out on a limb for the last few years" says Andrew Maynard chief scientist at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars’ Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies in Washington DC Maynard has long criticized coordination of EHS research under NNI and he was also a member of the NRC panel that wrote today’s report "Now the government needs to decide who needs to do what risk research and where the money is going to come from" For more thoughts from Maynard check out his latest blog posting Early indications suggest that the business community and the Congress will support that push In a statement issued this morning a coalition of eight small and large companies including DuPont and BASF as well as environmental groups and research outfits say they are pleased with the report because it presents "a thorough and forthright review of the NNI’s strategy document Its report echoes concerns our organizations have raised since the release of the strategy in February 2008" Bart Gordon (D-TN) the chair of the House Science and Technology Committee also chimed in this morning with a statement saying he shares many of the concerns raised by the new report He also pledged that his committee will reintroduce the NNI reauthorization legislation next year and take the NRC report’s recommendations into account Still on the table is a potential next step from EPA Last year President George W Bush signed legislation urging EPA to commission another National Academies study to develop a comprehensive research road map for all federal agencies on nano-EHS research So far it has been crickets from EPA Today the coalition of eight companies enviros and research outfits renewed the call for EPA to act If they don’t soon attention will shift to the incoming Obama Administration to see whether they’ll take any action UPDATE: The White House response after the jump White House science adviser John Marburger said today in a statement: "Few if any research areas benefit from as much interagency coordination as environmental health and safety issues associated with nanotechnology and the report’s primary core recommendation—to build upon the February 2008 report through development of a refined strategy for EHS research—is consistent with the approach actually being taken by NNI member agencies" Written by PTI | London | Published: May 28 2013 6:16 pm Related News Pop star Britney Spears reportedly wants
