Ive been wanting to write  about my India trip ever since I got back  but the thought of it being too personal has scared me a little. Maybe I will post some pictures at a later date but in the meantime I would like to say this.

I read quite a bit of Rushdie when I was in India.  I read his most recent “The Enchantress of Florence” which was decent at best.

Feroz Khan – an actor, director, producer  and a Bollywood luminary passed away at the age of 69 to cancer.

I will admit that I havent seen all of his films but I will always remember him by his two movies – Qurbani(1980) and JanBaaz(1986). Not only did he play the leading role in both the movies, he was also the director and producer. He also had quite a ear for music.The movie Qurbani (1980) was the biggest hit of his career and also launched the singing career of iconic Pakistani pop singer Nazia Hassan.
