Oh no, there's been an error
And it involves that moment when Felu Mitter tells his client Mr Ghoshal Sr that he will not take money as fees but instead keep the fake Ganesh statue as a token honorarium. Of course Mitter always had this irritating habit of taking away tokens of his conquest from his cases I always thought such behaviour a trifle childish, but then I am a very cynical man but this was extreme.
Extreme because in earlier cases, he would take away such tokens in addition to his fees. Here he refuses money altogether!
In demanding a fake Ganesh idol as his fee in the Felunath film, Mitter announces that he no longer needs to connect his work with wage-earning his keep. He is affluent enough, having been made into cultural star of Bengal courtesy the films, to become what we call in corporate parlance a consultant, a professional who chooses client servicing according to the prestigious quality of work offered and gets paid proportionate to his or her reputation in the field of work.
When I heard he had done this and this was when I was in jail , I thought to myself — Aha! The detective babu has gone up in life. He can afford to refuse money altogether. He takes holidays in touristic locations more and more. Felu Mitter had joined the global economy around the time the film Joi Baba Felunath was made.
What I mean to say is that the films made Mitter into a different thing. Remember, two years after after Sonar Kella, the film, Mitter travels to Bombay to work with the big capitalist money of the Bombay film industry. He was now getting connected to a world that might be located in feudal settings in India but was increasingly getting connected to global travel and money. Of course, this has been in reality the victory of my class.
Today my sons run very successful corporate business houses. They have even opened a private museum for the Maganlal Meghraj Collection of antiques in Bombay. Well, I guess it is a happy thing — we have all come out on the good side of things despite all the troubles we have been through.
Your cousin and I were already moving the economy along quite ahead of when you thought globalization began in India. Mitter was reforming the feudal classes towards corporat- ism, egging them on to become professional like himself, and going up in the world, which then allowed me to re-enter history as a legal and even positive force to bankroll the needs of this transformation. Look Tapesh, the decision to step outside of all ideological histories, an emphasis on individual entrepreneurship, the insistence on economic and legal reform and an eye towards looking smart in line with the material fashions of the day are all in line with certain histories and strands of Indian corporatism that mark our times today.
All those trips Mitter makes to New Market.
For me he is the very spirit of what New Market stands for in the fantasies of the Bengali middle class. Becoming consultant is always a lifestyle choice. Let me return to the uncanny resemblance between Mitter in the Feluda films and other heroes in other films of Mr Ray.
In all those other films the heroes who looked like Mitter were all flawed heroes despite being very flamboyant, attractive and intelligent men. A simple one — all these heroes seem to be bhadrolok but over-flamboyant beyond the conservative slow ways of bhadro Bengali society and this brings them down.
Mr Ray it seems was pointing out to a crisis of the materially flamboyant and ambitious modern bhadrolok young male in Bengali society. And would becoming a detective, a profession that allows for flamboyant action in the material world, allow for some kind of culturally acceptable containment of such a bhadrolok man at odds with the ways of Bengali society?
I think it would, because as a detective this flamboyant Bengali male becomes acceptable to your society as one doing intelligent brainwork, a form of work that is a fetish for you Bengalis. He is not becoming a revolutionary nor an ambitious businessman nor going culturally radical. But aesthetically speaking something interesting happens.
The flamboyant male loses some of the heights that he was aspiring for in over the top action in high politics or leadership in commerce but can nevertheless carry out some of this flamboyance in socially and culturally acceptable forms. He resolves the crisis of action of these heroes in the figure of the detective Felu Mitter, more so in the films than in the print form of the stories.
But of course the journey towards lifestyle is an attenuated one in keeping with the attenuated flamboyance that the detective form is charged with in the Mitter figure, towards the resolution of a certain crisis in Bengali cultural imagination. He cannot all of a sudden become rich and start behaving like an action movie star.
No, that would not be possible.
But expand he must to his new found glamorous status. Mitter was always a restless character, moody and prone to his demons from what I have read in your accounts. These traits would be accentuated in expanded field of action and influence if some form of release was not found for his heightened status.
Mitter flies on an aeroplane for the first time in Bombaiyer Bombete and then onwards the instances become more frequent. All in all, on the surface of things, Felu Mitter keeps his austere frugal air all the while entering newer realms of economies and consumption.
After Felunath, Mitter was milking it all — pop culture, high history and anything of extraordinary value — cultural or monetary. Then of course a crisis happens in the Felu stories [acknowledged by Mitter himself in Nayan Rahasya The Mystery of Nayan, ] — the plots dry up, the action tepid and the excitement lukewarm.
But by then, the Feluda series has given us a glimpse of the expanse of the Bengali bourgeoisie across Bengal, India and the world. What were the holiday adventure sub- series novels all about, those stories where Mitter, you and Uncle go holidaying to some exotic locale and fall into an adventure?
But the real story for me was about a figure of Bengali mass fantasy, a figure of action through whom the Bengali could feel taking charge of a world that in some senses was felt to be lost or was seen as a valid field to be dominated by people who knew so much more about the world.

Mitter was needed to resolve the crisis of material action in history that Mr Ray saw as the crisis the Bengali middle class was harbouring, within which I am sure he saw the action-oriented politics of the Naxals. Of course, your cousin was a nationalist as well as a general legal idealist , but a nationalist with a point to prove. Here we need to note his withering critiques of demotic Indian manners, habits and proclivities, the corrupt and lawless ways of the country and contrast it with his great admiration of the techniques of Western knowledge.
Would I be wrong in seeing in the Feluda character the image of the average modern Indian middle-class male of our times who believes statist—legalistic discipline that results in an ordered society is what India needs above everything else in its post-independence history to cure it of its unruly anarchic ways?
Such a society also provides the pretext for the professional application of sharp technocratic skills to be at par with international standards of meaningful historical action.

It smacks of a world-negating narcissism and unmediated violence which in some ways is far worse than my corrupt and cruel ways. After a period of production of popular action cinema that was shunned by the middle classes, Bengali cinema today can reach out to the bhadrolok through detective films, having action drama, but that speak of feudal reform and the defeat of economic corruption in India.
Endgames … the future is mine No my young friend, I need not worry about you. You I am sure are doing very well, reaping the harvest for the services your cousin has rendered the bhadrolok class by saving them humiliation at the hands of the public forces of our history. But I do resent the fact that in doing so, I, the Marwari who was and still is a partner of the bhadrolok in their histories of wealth — old and new, have been cast as the villain of the piece along with all those who handle the rougher edges of wealth making.
Why was I handed over to the state as a criminal and those bhadro families with corrupt histories allowed to bask in the glory of cultural hubris and highest degrees of social legitimacy? In fact I have noticed the more the bhadrolok has stopped participating in the actual act of wealth making from the soil upwards the more you chaps have vilified us as corrupt and villainous.
The Bengali corrupt businessman has now been included within bhadro society while all ill is heaped on us — the outsider Marwari. This I think is unfair. But as he repeats in his own ordinary ways the gesture of the rich bhadrolok — the avoidance of the dirty ends of money, he becomes more and more a Bengali nationalist than being a nationalist for India by criminalizing me in case after case. My blood begins to boil as I realize the trick history has played on me disguised as Pradosh Chandra Mitter.
I withdraw that earlier statement of mine where I had likened myself to a benign Katukutu Budo! I am no figment of cowardly Bengali bourgeois imagination! Of course I was right in wanting to bring down the Ghoshal family by taking away that which would have allowed that family to bounce back in history!
Their forefathers were thieves too just like me. Every newcomer to this game with no backing has to be a thief to make it big. Then why point a finger at me and say — You dirty Marwari? It is for this that I swore to rob the Bengali bhadro society dry.
It is I, in my infinite resentment of things bhadro who is the true nationalist, the destroyer of the colonial bourgeoisie. For I know I do the dirty job of making rivers of cash created out of soaking my hands in the blood of the poor on which your cultured society rests prosperously and without sin. In this realization I am far more lethal than the Naxal lumpens in decimating your kind, but I am prevented from doing my task by the evil Felu Mitter! That evil fellow who heaped Bengali intellectual superiority on Uncle all the time.
I fed him inebriants to wake up his repressed being. In my evil ways there is great compassion Mitter Jr. I bide my time Mr Tapesh! I bide my time! For the moment I have shaken hands with my sworn enemy, your bhadrolok, to survive my defeat by the Bengali detective. One day I shall come back like Kalki Avatar to finish my job. Yours hatefully, Maganlal Meghraj Notes 1. Sonar Kella appeared in novel form in and Joi Baba Felunath in ; both were published in the Puja special issue of Desh magazine.
These were the only two Feluda stories filmed by Ray. In this letter, I prefer to address Feluda by this latter Anglicised surname since my relationship with Feluda has always been a sharp ironic one. For the decline of the Bengali zamindari feudal landlordly class, see Chatterjee, Empire and Nation: Selected Essays, — The bhadrolok, a peculiar configuration of Bengali society, would roughly translate into a collection of men marked by genteel social manners cutting across middle class niches.
For a consideration of bhadrolok-dom, refer to Bhattacharya, The Sentinels of Culture: Class, Education, and the Colonial Intellectual in Bengal — Ray himself never considered these films as a trilogy. Jalsaghar The Music Room, dealt with the declining zamindari class of Bengal while Abhijan The Expedition, was about the corrupt mixed world of Bengalis and Marwaris in a region straddling the provinces of Bihar and Bengal.
Of course he will since the adult Apu and Mitter are played by the same actor Soumitro Chatterjee. Professor Shonku was the other fiction series Ray created featuring an eccentric scientist, the aforesaid Professor Shonku, as the main protagonist. A fantasy musical of sorts, Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne was extensively shot in Rajasthan and used a hybrid Rajasthani and Bengali folk music inflected score composed by Ray himself. The Marwaris in Calcutta, c.
Another very acclaimed detective novel series by Saradindu Bandyopadhyay featuring the detective Byomkesh Bakshi has the lead sleuth being assisted by a Watson- like figure, in this case, the writer Ajit. The Naxalbari movement was a Marxist-Leninist armed revolutionary struggle launched in Bengal in which has now evolved into the Maoist armed insurgencies of contemporary times all over India.
The movement has from its inception drawn active participation by urban students and youth. Katukutu Budo The Old Man Who Tickles torments hapless victims by telling them ghoulish tales, reciting absurd rhymes and tickling them with a long feather. Here I am referring to the current cults of Ray cinema and Rabindra sangeet in the films of Bengali directors of the s and s such as Rituparno Ghosh, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury or Srijit Mukherjee.
I refer to Lalmohan Ganguly aka Jatayu, writer of thrillers set in the wildest territories of the world, as Uncle as a mark of respect for his age. Throughout this paragraph, I refer to Feluda adventures that I discuss in greater detail in the next section of my letter. A veritable box of wonders, the market purveys everything from flowers to fruits and condiments to European and Central Asian confections and meats to home decoration to Western clothing and underwear to books to European watches to music and much else, in short, providing the twentieth-century Bengali middle classes all the joys of a nineteenth-century European shopping arcade.
The Feluda stories can be divided up roughly into two types — the ones where he is acting on commission of a client and others where he, his cousin Tapesh and Jatayu get embroiled in adventures while holidaying outside Calcutta. And it is this focus on the truth instead of technique that allows Byomkesh, in contrast to Mitter, to frequently act against the interests of the law which is nothing but a set of middle class cultural values masquerading as truth.
The s have seen a glut of detective films being produced in Bengal, higher than any other region of India. References Bhattacharya, T. The Sentinels of Culture: New Delhi: Oxford University Press, Biswas, M.
