"Not to have seen the films of Satyajit Ray would mean existing in the world without seeing the sun or the moon." --Akira Kurosawa quoted in The New York Times, February 21, 1992.
"Ray's productions were virtually one-man shows. He wrote the screenplay, cast the parts, designed the costumes, scored the music, directed, mixed and edited the final package. Originally a graphic artist, he also sketched the advertisements." --From New York Post obituary, April 24, 1992.
Given the Gem of India Award (1992), the highest civilian honor in India.
