About This Issue
Why is no one talking about Kashmir, Rahat Kurd asks in reviewing Arundhati Roy’s long awaited novel The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. Ali Kazimi does double duty with his article about Roy’s book launch in Toronto and his luminous, Edward Hopper inspired, Fair Play Artist Run Centre. Triple duty, if you count the image banners for this issue!

Fair PlayArt by Ali Kazimi, text by Indu Vashist
In recent years, there have been many commemorations of the Komagata Maru Incident, citing it as a dark chapter in Canadian history. Ali Kazimi's work examines not just this event, but places this event into a wider historical context of racism.
