Listen to the contempt with which Satyajit Ray says Indian audience is "unsophisticated"

These were the Communist minded elite who did propaganda which kept India poor.

Then sold that poverty to the West.

Then spat on our faces and called us unsophisticated.
Yes, Feluda was a beloved character.

Doesnt change fact that Feluda was simply Ray himself, talking down to ordinary masses.

We were supposed to listen in awe to Feluda telling us that in phoren airports, they use aerobridges and not buses to carry people from the plane.
Fact is that in today's India, Satyajit Ray's Feluda would be out of a job.

We have aerobridges at Indian airports today, Feluda.

Even Ranchi.

What great stories of "phoren" will you tell us?
Then, there were movies like Agantuk... all same theme.

One guy goes abroad and then comes back.

Everyone listens in admiration as he shows off 2-3 phoren coins.
And I will say straight.

I am no supporter of Mamata Banerjee, but she is less fake than this Satyajit Ray.

She represented the first wave of uprising in Bengal against intellectual tyrants like Ray.
