Krishen Khanna
(1925)

Untitled



“[The bandwallahs] are all dressed up like kings. Actually, they are in tatters. They are poor chaps. You see the fronts of their shoes are broken and their toes are twiddling away. It proves that life is neither comedy nor tragedy all the way through. It’s tragicomic. It’s Chaplinesque. It’s the philosophy behind it that makes it so powerful.”
– KRISHEN KHANNA
