My Last Project
Anthology on the Film Grease
I first met the director of the film Randal Kleiser in the mid-90's in Los Angeles. That was the beginning of my interest in blockbusters which led to my doing a PhD. Why do specific films work and attract viewers by the millions, whereas others, with the same good intentions, fail miserably? In the case of Grease, this book goes a long way towards explaining why it became a global phenomenon and the second highest earning musical ever (inflation adjusted).
The Major: Last Survivor of the Raj
I am very proud and excited to share some details on my current book. I am writing the biography of my late teacher Major Geoffrey Langlands OBE.
It is not every teacher whose death sends an entire country into mourning. But then, Major Geoffrey Langlands was no ordinary teacher and his was no ordinary life: The BBC.
Intrepid British Army officer described as a relic of the Raj, who stayed on after Partition in 1947 and became a headmaster in Pakistan: The London Times

"A wolf is not afraid of a barking dog."
I am very keen to hear from those who knew the Major during the many stages of his life. He was a private man and not effusive about the details of his life. Your input in the form of anecdotes, photos etc. is crucial to ensure that this biography truthfully reflects the many facets of this complex man.
