Akira Kurosawa

Will post some of the insightful quotes from the genius's book (Something like an autobiography) in this posting as I read the book.

"Many of my friends have urged me to write an autobiography...It is no longer enough for them to know that an artist has expressed himself with the help of the camera and a microphone."

Life is brief.
Fall in love, maidens,
before the crimson bloom
fades from your lips,
before the tides of passion
cool within you,
for those of you
who know no tomorrow.
Life is brief.
Fall in love, maidens,
before your raven tresses
begin to fade,
before the flames in your hearts
flicker and die,
for those to whom
today will never return."

-A poem from Ikuru by Akira Kurosawa.

Our Anand was slightly inspired from Ikuru,However the world of Anand and the protagonist of Ikuru are totally different and their attitudes.
