Prodosh Chandra Mitra, popularly known as Feluda, is a fictional private investigator created by renowned Indian writer-director Satyajit Ray. Appearing in a series of Bengali novels and short stories, Feluda first made his appearance in Sandesh , a children’s periodical started by Ray’s grandfather Upendrakishore Ray.
So how does Feluda go about solving the mysteries he confronts? Based out of Kolkata and equipped with enormous general knowledge that he has gathered by reading, Feluda is seen solving complicated cases using ‘magajastra’ or brain-weapon, Ray’s way of referring to Feluda’s extraordinary analytical ability.
From the way in which he is portrayed, it is evident that Feluda hugely appreciates Sherlock Holmes. Can you guess who else Feluda drew inspiration from? Its none other than Bruce Lee!
