I am happy to introduce you to two new blogs that are set to contribute a lot of materials on Punjabi culture and art.
Poet/Playwright Surjeet Kalsey’s blog at http://surjeetkalsey.wordpress.com offers comprehensive information on her literary work accomplished in the last two-three decades. She is the author of over 17 titles in English and Punjabi including collections of poetry, short fiction, literary criticism, anthologies and translations. View Publications page.
Surjeet’s stage plays have been performed as well as published in book form. The blog also provides information about her book launches, awards and distinctions. The Photo pages have images of literary circles, stage plays, Family and Friends.
The second blog is of Actor Darshan Mann who has worked in most stage plays performed in Punjabi theatre in British Columbia since the Seventies. Her blog provides detailed information on her acting roles and her bio. Her portfolio carries shots from different stage plays and slide show of selected photos.
Darshan Mann has performed in BC, Ontario and Alberta.
Through the creative work done by Darshan Mann and Surjeet Kalsey, we can begin to collect the history of Punjabi theatre and literature in British Columbia and in Canada.
Looking at the two blogs, it is apparent that both Darshan and Surjeet have created substantial bodies of original and creative work in literature and performing arts as their contributions to Punjabi communities of Vancouver Lower Mainland. And, i am proud to say that both are my dear friends.
