The derby match was first a major craze within the city of Calcutta. The book shows the decline of Mohammedan Sporting after partition, as it lost a huge section of Muslim supporters who migrated to Pakistan.
The catchment area for the club also declined as they only recruited Muslim players. This rigid religious attitude caused a downfall in the performances of the club and by the mids, Mohammedan Sporting officials withdrew this rule and recruited non-Muslim players.
This policy helped and in the s, Mohammedan Sporting won the DCM tournament twice, in and and the Calcutta league in , but could not match the financial clout of Bagan and East Bengal. Thus, Mohammedan Sporting became the third biggest power of Calcutta football. The author shows that due to their wealth, clubs like Mohun Bagan and East Bengal made Calcutta the main centre of Indian football.

For both financial reasons and prestige, the best players in the country in the late fifties and sixties, like Peter Thangaraj. Famous film director Satyajit Ray, in his film Jana Aranya, showed how club identity turned into social prestige for a man in the s. A man gets questioned about his academic qualification but his replies reflect his club identity namely Mohun Bagan. So football was not just the inspiration, but a way of life for the fans.
Bagan players like Bhaskar Ganguly, Subrata Bhattacharya and Prasun Banerjee went into hiding to escape the wrath of their bitter fans. They were rescued by club legend Sailen Manna with the help of the Calcutta police after midnight.
Player transfers also became full of subterfuge and intrigue and some players were even kidnapped to get signed for a particular club.
The rise of vernacular sports journalism, increase in number of Bengali newspapers and separate columns on football made the players heroes among the youth. All these factors, to a large extent, increased the tension of the derby matches in the s and 70s. It is hard to believe, but this book aptly shows that in the s and 70s, there were better career and financial opportunities for a football player in Calcutta than for a cricketer.
The book ends with the description of the death of sixteen football fans at the Eden gardens during an East Bengal vs Mohun Bagan match on 16 August Even the film Ray himself considered to be his best — Charulata — has never found too many devotees; and his greatest hit in Bengal, Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne The Adventures of Goopy and Bagha, is barely known in the West. Shatranj ke Khilari The Chess Players, , with a storyline involving British imperialism and featuring Richard Attenborough in a big role, received mixed reviews everywhere.
The real question is why certain films appealed to overseas audiences while others did not. They feature characters who are moderately Westernised, they are set in locales far less alien than Nischindipur the fictional village where Pather Panchali was set , and they are faster in pace than his earlier films.
Oh no, there's been an error
On the face of it, one would expect Western audiences to find them more accessible than Pather Panchali or Ashani Sanket, but they never have. Dwight Macdonald wrote in Esquire: Frontiers every Westerner has known about India for centuries is that it is primarily a rural country with vast numbers of very poor people.
Subsidiary themes cluster around this central notion — the importance of religious tradition, the rigidity of caste distinctions, or the contemplative habits of the Indian mind. Ray covered a wide range of themes and social strata — it takes a lot of ignorance to portray the maker of Jalsaghar, Charulata and Shatranj ke Khilari as a pornographer of poverty.
Of the many films Ray made on the middle and upper classes, only two ever received any sustained acclaim abroad — Jalsaghar mostly in France, which falls outside the Anglo-American focus of this essay and Aranyer Din Ratri. Of course, any Indian viewer would know that even Pather Panchali was about the rural middle class, not about peasants. Concerned about the delay in releasing the film in Manhattan, Time investigated why New York exhibitors were reluctant to screen the film.
Its success, however, was intimately associated with poverty. When Ray began to depict the rich, his work seemed far less universal to some American critics. Alan Ross, the editor of London Magazine, wrote in And even this restricted impact was not felt outside the arthouse.

What can we conclude from all this? The obvious, pessimistic interpretation would be that although artists can sometimes cross the frontiers of language, culture and psychology, the channels of communication are narrow and transient.
Ray himself, although appreciative of Western interest in his films, never imagined that they were fully accessible to the West.
There obviously are individuals who can cross this double frontier, but how many? Such an analysis, although accurate, is not sufficient in itself. He shared the limelight with the likes of Bergman, Fellini and Kurosawa. Ray was simply one prominent name in world cinema, albeit the only Indian.
This, we should also recall, was a period when the prosperous and consumerist Indian diaspora, which has established Bollywood as a cultural force in the big cities of the West, was not very numerous or particularly prosperous. So, there was no substantial ethnic market for Indian cinema in the West, and although interest in India was often high among the sahibs in the s — think of Mahesh Yogi and the Beatles — it was rarely a well-informed interest.
Ray, clearly, was an authentically Indian filmmaker, but his best films were never so Indian as to be incomprehensible to Westerners. Whenever he failed to strike this balance, much of his Western audience deserted him.
We should at least consider whether the Bergmans, Mizoguchis and Godards have fared very differently. They are all old classics now, but their works are rarely released in commercial venues. So, did Ray bridge Bengal and the world? Yes — but within limits and only for a limited period.
Paraphrasing Karl Marx and mixing metaphors, one might say that people who cross cultural frontiers build their own bridges, but they do not build them just as they please in circumstances they choose for themselves; they build them in present circumstances, given and inherited.
In any case, the frontiers Ray began to cross more than 50 years ago have now changed their contours. Notes 1. In The Pioneer, 3 January In The Times, 24 April , p. Robin Wood. Time, 10 May See http: David Robinson.
