Veteran trilingual actor Tom Alter died on 29 September. For the writers fraternity, Tom was a favourite person to launch a book and we will all miss Tom. More than his launch presence will be missed his theatrical baritone on stages behind the Lal Quila. Tom played Bahadur Shah Zafar to enthralled audiences every winter. The actor became an Indian citizen, and contributed enormously to the cultural life of this country.
