"Aparajito (The Unvanquished) is the sequel to Pather Panchali (Song of the Road), which is the best known novel written by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay.... Like Pather Panchali, Aparajito reveals the clarity of Bubhutibhushan's own inner vision, the astute but sympathetic treatment of his characters anbd his close intimacy with nature." Satyajit Ray made the famous Apu Trilogy based on these books by Bibhutibhushan.
