A widely published novelist, dramatist and poet, Suhayl Saadi practises as a doctor in Glasgow. His father, also a doctor, came to Britain in 1955 and was amongst the first wave of south Asians who helped build the NHS. Alina Mirza settled in Scotland after marrying Saadi. Mirza is a curator and public health specialist. Both Mirza and Saadi are passionate about addressing the under-representation of the Pakistani community in mainstream arts. In 2005 they organised the first Pakistani film, media and arts festival in Glasgow. This intimate family portrait is full of a variety of rich colours and textures giving it a luxurious feel.
