It was an evening that took me back 40 years.  It reminded of the long and winding journey most of us have taken. 40 years ago we would not have imagined that Corrine and George (now Siddhartha) would have organised a Sufi evening.  This March evening they did, and I reached there to capture these moments.
It is quite incredible that many of the firebrands are still at it.. albeit in a relaxed reflective mood. More expansive.. Less Shrill.. But "kattar" nonetherless! The evening was also a critique of some of our old blinkered ways, where we ignored everything that was not political.
