The most anticipated book on the centenary birth anniversary of Satyajit Ray

An amazingly brilliant collection of Satyajit Ray's previously unpublished autobiographical writings, illustrations, fictions and non-fictions

A collector's item, 3 Rays is a source of delight for every reader

Satyajit Ray (1921-1992), through his life, philosophy and works offered a unique aesthetic sensibility, which took Indian cinema, art and literature to a new height. An ace designer, music composer, illustrator and a gifted writer, Ray gave us the awe-inspiring sleuth Feluda, and the maverick scientist, Professor Shonku-two iconic characters loved and revered by millions of readers.

On the occasion of his centenary birth anniversary, 3 Rays: Stories from Satyajit Ray, the first book in The Penguin Ray Library series, opens a window to the brilliance of this Renaissance man. With more than forty stories and poems along with many unpublished works, autobiographical writings and illustrations by Ray, this volume offers a unique glimpse into Ray's creative genius.

3 Rays is a rare treasure-house of talent that breaks all barrier between different genres of art, media and technology, delineating a truly striking legacy of the Bengal Renaissance that is as global as it is local.If you are looking for a book that will amuse you with its whimsical rhymes, take you on adventures to exotic lands while penned in at home by the pandemic, bring on the chills and thrills with an unexpected twist in the tale, 3 Rays is the book for you.3 Rays is a collectible-not merely for the treasure trove of texts it contains but also for being a beautifully designed book, studded with graphics and illustrations by the three Raysa masterly rendition'3 Rays, a masterly rendition''If you are looking for a book that will amuse you with its whimsical rhymes, take you on adventures to exotic lands while penned in at home by the pandemic, bring on the chills and thrills with an unexpected twist in the tale, 3 Rays is the book for you.'A collection of Satyajit Ray's translation of his grandfather's, father's and his own writings pays a fitting tribute to his many-faced genius''This book which contains, the published and unpublished works of the three Masters, 3 Rays, is like exploring the Mother Earth, and finding the rare treasures'.'I have noticed one very striking factor in [Ray's] literary works-there are some characters who possess tremendous mental or physical strength but at the same time show an almost childlike innocence. Say, for example, the Tellus. It has an innocent attitude in its desire to play with a child. And then there is the alien Pink Man or the robot Bidhusekhar-they also have the same traits. . . . Also, most of [his] protagonists, especially in the short stories, belong to the lower middle-class; they perform clerical or petty jobs. They are essentially loners, but they have a world of their own imagination'.'Satyajit Ray's work is like a beautiful scene from nature, and that's the reason we get lost in his beautiful art. The mysticism in his work can only be experienced and is very difficult to explain, as it's seemingly ordinary. When we look at his work deeply, this 'ordinary' evokes mysticism.''Ray's magic, the simple poetry of his images and their emotional impact, will always stay with me''Satyajit Ray's artifice and honesty set him apart from other film directors''The work of Satyajit Ray presents a remarkably insightful understanding of the relations between cultures, and his ideas remain pertinent to the great cultural debates in the contemporary world, not least in India.''Satyajit Ray's world of restless watchfulness and nuance''The quiet but deep observation, understanding and love of the human race ... have impressed me greatly'.
