Tarun Bose, My Father -- Song & Dance

 Finally I did it! I finally launched the blog I have been wanting to for a long time. The timing couldn’t get better considering that Indian cinema completes 100 years. Initially my brother and I had thought of launching dad’s website, but after having had some satisfying discussions on cinema with film bloggers I was tempted to have a film blog which would be both about dad and cinema in general; so now you know why I call this blog Tarun Bose and the World of Cinema.
I am overwhelmed by the response to the 'About' page. I have  great plans but how successfully I implement these plans remains to be seen.

We (my brother and I) have been planning to put up our father’s – (Tarun Bose)-- website for quite some time. We kept planning but nothing materialized because we were both busy with our respective careers and personally I had this niggling doubt – Would anybody be interested? After all my father was an actor of the sixties, besides that, he had a brief career so the obvious question that crossed my mind was -- Do people remember him? Or even know him? We therefore got on with our lives and the plan remained just that ‘A Plan’.
 Then one fine day my brother decided to do a Google search on dad; he wanted to see what was available on the internet and he stumbled upon a review of ‘Oonche Log’ in a film blog – Memsaabstory
