As we mentioned earlier, The Golden Pen was selected to premiere at Toronto’s ReelWorld Film Festival on April 13 (the video above with Zuhair Kashmeri introducing the documentary was from the premiere); won a runners-up in the short documentary category at the Winter 2012 Asians on Film Festival in West Hollywood; and has its New York premiere on June 6, 2012, hosted by the prestigious Foreign Policy Association in Manhattan.

This has been an amazing journey for me, much as it was an amazing journey for my father, from his hometown of Lucknow, India (not Lucknow, Ontario) to Toronto, Canada.

Enjoy and after you watch the doc, please return here to http://thegoldenpen.ca, leave your comments or e-mail us.

  1. Excellent programme! I look forward to getting hold of Aghajani Sahib’s autobiography (in any language) and The Golden Pen docu film. Would love to connect with Zuhair Kashmeri to showcase his laudable effort to highlight his father’s life and work to people in UK.
    Cheers to Ms Lobo on a meaningful programme free of the irritating chatter and artificial smiles (we call them: Faltoo ke latke jhatkey in Hindustani) that mark the great majority of our Indian presenters!

  2. Hello Sundeep. Try and find his autobiography. It was published in 1969 by Mittal in New Delhi. Hindi title: Subha Hone Tak. Urdu title: Sahar Hone Tak. Thanks for your interest in my dad.
