31While he is developing the pictures in the dark room, someone opens the door by mistake, and the pictures evaporate from the paper. The large numbers of rats that are dying around them frightens Phalke’s wife

36An empty house yawns at him.

Phalke rushes inside, calling for his wife and child.


37Phalke roams from camp to camp with photographs of his wife and child, looking for their bodies.

38Wandering desolate after their death, a paranoid Dada meets Nicephore Niepce, one of the Lumiere Brothers’ 40 magicians. A 33PLAGUED BY MEMOR.

Toward midnight, that night, there was another function. I think it was a betrothal ceremony. We seemed to move through a city of the dead. The plague was not in Bombay then, but it is devastating the city now. The shops are deserted, When we had pierced deep into the native quarter and were threading its narrow dim lanes, we had to go carefully, for men were stretched asleep all about and there was hardly room to drive between them. And every now and then a swarm of rats would scamper across past the horses' feet in the vague light - the forbears of the rats that are carrying the plague from house to house in Bombay now. The shops were but sheds, little booths open to the street; and the goods had been removed, and on the counters families were sleeping, usually with an oil lamp present. 34But at last we turned a corner and saw a great glare of light ahead. It was the home of the bride, wrapped in a perfect conflagration of illuminations, - mainly gas-work designs, gotten up specially for the occasion. Within was abundance of Brilliancy - flames, costumes, colors, decorations, mirrors - it was another Aladdin show.

35The bride was a trim and comely little thing of twelve years, dressed as we would dress a boy, though more expensively than we should do it, of course. She moved about very much at her ease, and stopped and talked with the guests and allowed her wedding jewelry to be examined. It was very fine. Particularly a rope of great diamonds, a lovely thing to look at and handle. It had a great Emerald hanging to it.


35A while after midnight a couple of celebrated and high-priced nautchgirls appeared in the gorgeous place, and danced and sang. With them were men who played upon strange instruments, which made uncanny noises of a sort to make one's flesh creep. One of these instruments was a pipe, and to its music the girls went through a performance that represented snake charming. It seemed a

It is of a porch and short flight of steps crowded with dark faces and ghostly-white draperies flooded with the strong glare from the dazzling concentration of illuminations; and midway of the steps one conspicuous figure for accent - a turbaned giant, with a name according to his size: Rao Bahadur Baskirao Balinkanje Pitale, Vakeel to his Highness the Gaikwar of Baroda. Which showed epidemic of the Black Death, and he has imagined the terrors that creep into a man's heart at such a time and follow him until they themselves breed the fatal sign in the armpit, and then the delirium with confused images, and home-dreams, and reeling billiard-tables, and then the sudden blank of death: - his mouth is parched; the throbbing brain - his brain Does throb; the rapid pulse - he touches his own wrist (for he dares not ask counsel of any man lest he be deserted), he touches his wrist, and feels how his frighted blood goes galloping out of his heart. There is nothing but the fatal swelling that is wanting to make his sad conviction complete; immediately, he has an odd feel under the arm - no pain, but a little straining of the skin; he would to God it were his fancy that were strong enough to give him that sensation; this is the worst of all. It now seems to him that he could be happy and contented with his parched mouth, and his throbbing brain, and his rapid pulse, if only he could know that there were no swelling under the left arm; but dares he try? - In a moment of calmness and deliberation he dares not; but when for a while he has writhed under the torture of suspense, a sudden strength of will drives him to seek and know his fate; he touches the gland, and finds the skin sane and sound but under the cuticle there lies a small lump like a pistol-bullet, that moves as he pushes it. Oh! But is this for all certainty, is this the sentence of death? Feel the gland of the other arm. There is not the same lump exactly, yet something a little like it. Have not some people glands naturally enlarged? - Would to heaven he were one! So he does for himself the work of the plague, and when the Angel of Death thus courted does indeed and in truth come, he has only to finish that which has been so well begun; he passes his fiery hand over the brain of the victim, and lets him rave for a Sunday morning, for all the church bells are ringing); he looks up and down through the universe, and owns it well piled with bales upon bales of cotton, and cotton eternal - so much so that he feels - he knows - he swears he could make that winning hazard, if the billiard-table would not slant upwards, and if the cue were a cue worth playing with; but it is not - it's a cue that won't move - his own arm won't move - in short, there's the devil to pay in the brain of the poor Levantine; and perhaps, the next night but one he becomes the "life and the soul" of some squalling jackal family, who fish him out by the foot from his shallow and sandy grave." large mirror in a carved frame is on the stage. Phalke is invited onstage, where he is asked to walk around the mirror and examine it to his satisfaction. Niepce asks him to don a hooded red robe. He then positions him some ten feet from the mirror, where the vivid red reflection is clearly visible to the audience. The theatre is darkened, except for a brightening light that comes from within the mirror itself. As Phalke waves his robed arms around and bows to his bowing reflection, his reflection begins to show signs of disobedience. It crosses its arms over its chest and sta0rts waving them about. Suddenly, the reflection grimaces, removes a knife and stabs itself in the chest. The reflection collapses onto the reflected floor – it is he himself. Now a ghost-like white form rises from the dead reflection and hovers in the mirror all at once, a ghost emerges from the glass. It looks towards the startled, terrified spectators. The masterful illusion mystifies even professional magicians who agree only that the mirror was a trick cabinet with black lined doors in the rear and an assistant hidden inside. The lights were probably concealed between the glass and the lightly silvered back. As the lights grew brighter, the mirror grew transparent, and a red-robed assistant showed himself in the glass. The ghost was more difficult to explain, despite a big tradition of stage ghosts. It was said that concealed magic lanterns produced the phantom, but no other magician was able to imitate the effect. Even in these early years, there was something uncanny about the illusions. But some said that Nicephore was not a showman at all, but had sold his soul to the devil in return for unholy powers.38As the guru and his disciple traveled across the country, Nicephore made him paint the backdrops with his chemical jugglery. Cops come and take Phalke away.



39Phalke is a changed man when he returns home to Baroda. The family welcomes the prodigal back with love.38After hearing his story, they arrange his marriage to the daughter of Shankar Vasudev Karandikar so Phalke marries Saraswati. She is 13, he is 32.39But the face of his first wife haunts him. POONA & TRAVELING FOR THE ASI

40In Poona, Phalke’s job requires him to travel across the country, leaving his young wife behind his job is to make sketches of excavated sites, drawings that will later help him to design the sets for his films..41He still has not been able to reconcile the memories of his first wife Kamala, with the reality of his second wife, Saraswati.42But in Prof. Bhandarkar he sees and father figure, and they spend hours in conversation .43Phalke and his wife set up their small printing press at Karla caves, engraving the visionary images of Ravi Verma on the stores, from where they multiply on calendars and become household gods LONAVALA FATIMA------eak baat poochun,idher apne kitne naye chitre banaye hain? Ravi-------------tum to dekh rahi ho,is press ki jimmedari.iske liye mujhe vibhin riyasto mein jana padta hai Fatima--------aap chitrkar hain ya chapa khana wale?
