Subodh Ghosh

Subodh Ghosh (1909–1980) wrote several novels, but it was with his short stories that he made radical departures from the conventional form. One of his early stories, "Ajantrik," was about a taxi that had a mind of its own, and was memorably made into a film by the Bengali auteur Ritwik Ghatak (whose cinema was as passionate and impressionistic as his contemporary Satyajit Ray's was restrained and classical). Several of Ghosh's works went on to be filmed in Bollywood, including Sujata (1959) and Chitchor (1976), besides, of course, Jotugriho.
