  1. I found the Durga Puja bit strangely moving. Perhaps that is what ought to be done with these, inasmuch as “cinema” is (was?) perhaps the authentic access to the divine in our new, post-religious world (an insight Rushdie had in The Satanic Verses, even if he wasn’t Indian film buff enough to do justice to the theme)…
