A routine check-up for cough and chilly has landed Shabana Azmi in hospital with a extreme bout of swine flu. She is recuperating quick. But utilizing the time in productive pursuits. “Rarely do I get a chance to lie back and introspect. This is an enforced break for me, and one that was long due,” says Shabana Azmi who has been travelling extensively in connection with celebrations for the centenary of her father the good Kaifi Azmi.
Shabana says she is consistently shocked by how a lot the younger folks find out about Abba (Father)’s work. “It’s almost like a renaissance to hear the young recite his poems. To use his lines whenever they make are needed. So yes, I’ve been working hard to meet deadlines for various events in Abbba’s memory.”
Shabana says she doesn’t know the place she acquired the swine flu. “I have not been in contact with any swine whatsoever. But I am in hospital recovering fast.”
