Aranya Sarkar

Aranya Sarkar is a student of Jadavpur University and currently residing in Kolkata, West Bengal. He was first introduced to world cinema through the lens of Satyajit Ray. Since his later schooldays, he has been an avid analyser of the works of Ray and Mrinal Sen. However, it was his introduction to the life and works of Ritwik Ghatak that changed his outlook towards film viewing, and brought him close to the harsh realities and struggles of life, portrayed in the Raw films of Ghatak. Besides, having both his paternal and maternal roots deep in Bangladesh, he can truly understand the agony of a man who was totally destroyed due to the Partition of his homeland, the Partition of Bengal. His first work, "মাটির ময়না- বাংলা ও বাঙ্গালির আত্মকথা" is an analysis of the beautiful Bangladeshi Movie, "মাটির ময়না" by Late filmmaker Tareque Masud. He is currently undergoing a study on the Baul culture of Rural Bengal and is aiming towards changing the average urban understanding of the concept of Lalon and Baulism.
