Born into a family of reputed artists, Satyajit Ray (1921-1992) was a motion-film director, writer, illustrator and composer. Often touted as the figure that put Indian cinema on the world map, Ray earned eleven international prizes for his masterpiece "Pather Panchali", including an honorary Oscar in 1992 for his contribution to cinema. He directed 36 independent films which included short films and documentaries. Besides films, Ray also wrote novels and short fiction predominantly for children and young adults. Among others, characters like Feluda, the skilful sleuth and Professor Shonku, the sharp-witted scientist are popular till date. The Government of India awarded him the Bharat Ratna - the highest civilian award in the country - shortly before his death.
This year is the birth centenary of the auteur. We pay our homage to this maestro by featuring a collection containing 38 manuscripts, a couple of books, short stories published in Newspaper, discussion on the cinemas that he made, and some articles and theses on him.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
