I want learn bangla.


This sounds like a very good approach. I have a copy of "Agantuk". But where can I get a bangla copy of the script?? Thanks.My email is fnact@aol.com

You ask a good question, Daisy. Bangla does not have nice collections of pedagological materials for beginning and intermediate students, which means you have to find what you need the same way native speaking Bengalis find it. That's hard. Scripts are especially so.

I think the book we used was titled: নিজস্ব কাহিনী আবলম্বনে সম্পূর্ণ চিত্রনাট্য. Aguntak was in volume 20, no. 1+2 which was published in 1992. I vaguely remember Mandira saying she originally found this book in the Kolkata Little Magazine Library. If you were in Kolkata, you could go there, find the publisher and other bibliographic information and then go to Dej or one of the book stalls on College Street to see if they could track it down for you.

I'm thinking you are just starting, so I would probably suggest trying to email sources of Bangla books in the U.S. to see if they can help you find movie scripts in Bangla. Here's one example:


You might also find this link of Bangla materials useful:


I'd also recommend Essential Everyday Bengali, because it provides a good standard vocabulary for a beginner and provides helpful hnts like making sure to look up words in both English-Bengali and Bengali-English dictionaries.

I'd also add that the sooner you can use a Bangla-to-Bangla dictionary, the better.

Once you have worked through the basics you might also want to take a look at Bangla: An Advanced Course in Bengali - particularly if you are an academic.

I really hate seeing people suffer so if I have the power to make a difference I would solve poverty so that people will not be hungry anymore.

It is really hard at first when you learn a new language but its fulfilling at the same time.

China Web Hosting

Sounds interesting! I would also love to learn a new language. It would be difficult as a beginner but when you get used to it, it's really something to be proud of. Can anyone give me the link where to download this film? Thanks!

As much as possible I want to really learn the Hindu culture so that I can understand them.




Hi all,

Thanks for your comments. It is really hard to get film scripts. But in Kolkata, there is a 'Little Magazine Library' where you can get 'Little Magazines' and there , in many magazines, the scripts are published. Well, I am not going into the discussion of 'What is a Little Magazine'here. Here is the link of the information of the library. It is a privately run library. Contact the librarian. You have to pay for the cost of the photocopy and postage and there are most probably other rules. But the librarian is very nice and you can get a lot of scripts.


For the films, Ekaterina, you can buy them online. I am sending you one link


and I am sure, there are more. Sorry to be so late in answering your comment. Glad to hear that you teach Bengali and if you have more questions, you can send me an email.

I want a movie made after 1990-ish that's not supernatural-related and is just a really good horror movie. I've seen Halloween and Saw. They were pretty good but not the best. My all-time favorite horror movies are the three Scream movies, and The Last House on the Left.

Movies similar to those? Suggestions? Thanks!

My girlfriend wants to rent a horror movie tonight. I generally think that horror movies are stupid, so i don't watch many of them. Any suggestions on what we should rent?
