Hi,

You need to call the same command that you would use within terminal to execute a python script in bash script.

For instance:

python python_script.py arg1 arg2

And to access these arguments in python you can use:

import sys
print sys.argv[0] # prints python_script.py
print sys.argv[1] # prints agr1
print sys.argv[2] # prints agr2

Hope this helps!!
