The Anglo- Indian community is a community that is rich in talent,culture and spirit. It is a community that I proudly belong to and a community that is grateful to my uncle Harry Maclure for showcasing and inspiring thousands of Anglo Indians about our history and culture through his magazine, Anglos In the Wind. Harry has been a huge source of inspiration, an entrepreneur, an editor, community mobilizer and a filmmaker, he never fails to impress. Whenever I have required anything, he is there. He has helped me immensely from publishing my book of poems, to designing my logo, to guiding me when ever in doubt. In short, for me, he is a legend.
