and they made classics Nabendu Ghosh

That Bird Called Happiness, a collection of legendary script and screenplay writer and author Nabendu Ghosh’s short stories, translated from Bengali into English, was launched by eminent filmmaker Kumar Shahani at the Habitat Film Festival in New Delhi in May this year.
