Today marks the 97th birth anniversary of legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray. The multi-talented personality was a screenwriter, graphic artist, music composer and an author.
Ray directed 36 films, including feature films, documentaries and shorts. He was also a fiction writer, publisher, illustrator, calligrapher, music composer, graphic designer and film critic.
