I had no idea that when I was asked to do a photo shoot for The Southall Story exhibition, that The Family would be there. The mother Sarabhjit and daughter-inlaw Shey were both there. Nice people. I asked them what it was like to be suddenly launched into show business and become famous. “I’m not sure I like it” was Sarbhjit’s reply. Anyway, it was a cold morning at 9am and I tried to make sure that my shivering didn’t show through my thin kurta top – but then I noticed what Sarbhjit was wearing – chappals! Later, Shey and myself got behind the wheel. I can’t believe that the bus had passed it’s MOT – there were wires and things hanging out of the steering column – desi style – innit!
And don’t forget the Southall Story exhibition in the Spirit Level is open until 11th May.
