The lovers don’t meet. They just exchange notes in a lunchbox. Real handwritten notes . About life. And food.</p><p></p> Wed, 26 Feb 2014 14:45:00 +0000 Sandip Roy 40151 at http://kalw.org The Lunchbox feeds your soul A Big Screen Must See http://kalw.org/post/big-screen-must-see <p></p><p>Satyajit Ray is India’s most acclaimed filmmaker.&nbsp; But from Friday, January 17<sup>th</sup>, film lovers in the Bay Area will be able to see something people in India don’t really get to experience anymore.
