I wrote an obituary for veteran #Bollywood actor and screenwriter Kader Khan for +The Globe and Mail He had a fascinating journey - born in Kabul, Afghanistan, he grew up around Mumbai's Kamathipura neighbourhood, known as Mumbai's red-light district. His childhood antics caught the attention of local theatrewallahs, which then paved the way to Hindi cinema. He died in Mississauga, Ontario after a long illness.

I only knew of Jahanara Akhlaq through her photos; she looked luminous in them. A young Kathak dancer with great promise, she was murdered at the age of 24. The reasons for her death remain unclear.

I got the chance to write about a performance to honour Jahanara's memory by Bageshree Vaze, who started to learn Kathak after watching Jahanara perform.

I wrote about +Lenin M. Sivam's new film #Roobha for #CBC #Arts, and how he explored the taboo topic in his tender tale of a #Tamil #transgender romance.
