Description

After the tragic death of the irrepressible Asian Scot, Ali Abbasi, in 2004, his sister Mussie Abbasi Harrison wrote this touching tribute to her inspirational little brother. The BBC Radio Scotland broadcaster Ali, had a wit, charm and warmth which left a lasting impression and endeared him to everyone he met. But more than that, he was a true champion of multi-culturalism: he spoke Gaelic as confidently as he cooked up a curry. This book charts Ali's remarkable life, from his arrival in Glasgow and his multi-ethnic upbringing, to his passion for the diversity of life and his quest to spread happiness around him. At the same time, Mussie has succeeded in painting a picture of what life was like for a modern Asian family growing up in Glasgow in the 60's and 70's, resulting in an historic and fascinating story which will have you laughing and crying . Moving tributes from family members, friends and admiring listeners; fantastic photographs and memories of Ali's trips to the Highlands and islands of Scotland make up the rich tapestry of this heartfelt book. For those who loved Ali Abbasi and for those who never met him but wished they had, here is a privileged glimpse inside the life of a truly unique individual.
