In Muzaffar Ali's memoir, we see the sum of his many creative pursuits

Muzaffar Ali is a man of many arts. He paints, makes films and runs a fashion house. He also stages music and dance shows and is an aficionado of Urdu poetry. “Everything is connected,” he says. “If you don’t know poetry, you won’t know music. If you don’t know either, you don’t know dance. And if you don’t know body language, you won’t know the moving image.” Now, with Zikr: In the Light & Shade of Time, he wears another hat—that of an author. Perhaps best known for his film Umrao Jaan (1981), Ali made use of Covid-19 restrictions to pen the story of his life. Entrenched in Awadh’s Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb, Ali’s days have, in a sense, brimmed with creative journeys, but the polymath is not in the habit of imparting words of wisdom.
