    I know Amarjit Chandan. We speak about once a month. He has been encouraging me to write a play for a while, however I have so far resisted dur to lack of confidence. He is a great writer.

    Why do I know him? 4 Years ago I wrote the first British Punjabi novel, Neela Noor ( The Blue Light), which he has kindly described as Experimental.

    Currently I am writing another book, which will not be for public consumption, until I have perfected it. The mistake I made lasttime was not waiting for Chandan to return my manuscript before publishing it.

    Anyhow he is a great writer, and we need to encourage more western born writers by telling them about him.
