In the times of infiltration, mass abductions and the rising tension between nations to wage fully equipped war on each other, Christopher Nolan’s immersive World War II drama, Dunkirk is a needed horror to reminisce the ruthless consequences that a war incapacitates. Shot with sheer magnificence on IMAX 65 mm, Nolan’s perspective of a triptych screenplay, is an idea stimulated 25 years ago while sailing through the English Channel with his wife. With minimal dialogues delegated to characters, Dunkirk’s tale of evacuating the ambushed Allied soldiers goes far beyond the yarn of jingoistic scenarios and stenciled war porn sequences. The film is a struggle for survival, where apathetic fellow soldiers’ corpses are pushed in tides to make way for the living ones. And though it casts some seriously talented dramatists including Harry Styles, Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, it is not meant to be a narrative of any character or even war politics; there isn’t a single sequence where enemy situation-room packed with commander generals has been showcased on the screen. Yes, Nolan truly, and successfully accomplishes to draw a new tangent for a war-drama on celluloid. The catastrophic scenario of 400,000 soldiers from Belgium, Great Britain and France encircled on a beach by the…

    Among a couple of muses to Rabindranath Tagore, in the opinion of Ketaki Kusari Dyason, a perceptive translator of the poet, Victoria Ocampo was ‘the closest to him in stature.’ The natural beauty she was endowed with had the glow of exceptional powers of intelligence and literary sensibility. Born in a materially wealthy family she was. Among her favourite writers were the likes of Dante and Baudelaire and Bergson. She had wept on reading Andre Gide’s French translation of Geetanjali for she had seen in Rabindranath’s God her own. ‘O Rabindranath’s God,’ she wrote, ‘do you listen to me?’ We call it a platonic relationship. That, however, sounds trite. Her inner calling had had her revolt against traditional conditioning of the mind and she explored finding a more fulfilling scheme…
