In 1965, Ray wrote the first draft of a short story that featured a young boy and his older cousin brother. The cousin was Prodosh Chandra Mitra, also known as Feluda, who continues to rule the hearts and minds of every single reader of Bengali literature. Even after five decades since the first story was written, Feluda hasn’t had any national adaptations in popular media like cinema or the television.
Professor Shonku is a Bengali scientist and inventor. The character was inspired by Sherlock Holmes creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Professor Challenger.
Ray is widely regarded for his films The Apu Trilogy, The Music Room, The Big City and Charulata, among others. He also bagged several awards, honours and recognition, including an Honorary Academy Award in 1992.
