The global Feluda

 

A distinctive feature of Feluda’s cases was that many of them occurred outside Calcutta, all over India and at least on 3 occasions outside India. Memorabilia and locales of these adventures are highlighted

The 9 very rare and very expensive stamps from 3 continents mentioned in Chinnomostar Obhishaap. These stamps were a treasure unto themselves and their cumulative value as of 2009 exceed 2.5 million US dollars.

Note : For detailed analysis of these stamps and why they are so rare and expensive, please get in touch with the curators of the Felu museum

rattle.jpg

The western diamondback rattle snake owned by Bonbiharibabu and the villa deep in the Lakshmanjhula-Rishikesh forest, where he tried to kill Feluda and Topshe with it in the Badshahi Angti. This was possibly the closest call with death that the duo had in their careers. This adventure reminds one of the Holmes’ story, The Adventure of the Speckled Band

Taritbabu’s taritsprishto’, Royal Bengal Rohosshyo. Note the small blade, a characteristic of Moorish/Islamic sword, imported by the Turks to Bengal, circa 13th century AD

temple.jpg

‘Muro Hoi Buro Gaach..’ – the poetic cryptogram leading to a treasure in Royal Bengal Rohosshyo. The site is the Kata Thakurani’s temple deep in the Duars forest, where Feluda confronted a tiger, another close call with death. The cryptogram bears some similarity with the riddle in Holmes’ The Musgrave Ritual, Poe’s The Gold Bug and Tagore’s Guptodhon, all of which featured trees as their central motifs

tiger.jpg

The tiger that Feluda killed in Royal Bengal Rohosshyo and the gun with which he did it. The gun was a .375 H and H Magnum, made by Winchester in 1950 and one of the best big game hunting rifles.

The tiger was later stuffed by Mohitosh Singha Roy and gifted to Feluda

tintoretto.jpg

Christ’s Head – Tintorettor Jishu. Jacopo Comin, previously Jacopo Robusti aka Tintoretto (1514-1594) was the master late Italian renaissance and pre Baroque painter. In his life time he painted about 60 Christ motifs but none of them featured Christ’s head on its own. This is probably the only painting of Christ’s head known which came into possession of the Neogi family in Rome. This adventure took Feluda to Hongkong.
