“The only solutions that are ever worth anything are the solutions that people find themselves.”
Satyajit Ray

“Last, but not least -- in fact, this is most important -- you need a happy ending. However, if you can create tragic situations and jerk a few tears before the happy ending, it will work much better.”
Satyajit Ray, The Bandits of Bombay

“জানোয়ারের মন মানুষের মত জট পাকানো নয়। মানুষের মধ্যে যে সবচেয়ে বেশি সাদাসিধে, তারও মন একটা বাঘের মনের চেয়ে অনেক বেশি প্যাঁচালো।”
Satyajit Ray, The Royal Bengal Mystery
