There is one writer Simerg would like to single out just before 2012 ends, and the person is Mohezin (Mo) Tejani for his thought-provoking contributions both in prose and poetry. Tejani, a global nomad who has lived and worked in humanitarian aid in five continents of our planet, writes with insight and brilliance on many themes and topics including nature, social issues and travel narratives.
The award-winning author’s latest piece is based on Shakespeare’s The Seven Ages of Man and looks at the life of an Indian, African, and American in 2012 in contrast to Shakespeare’s man of 1538. An earlier piece was dedicated to Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan for Simerg’s special series, “Thanking Ismaili Historical Figures”, which portrayed the late Prince’s life-long contributions with warmth and affection.
We invite our readers around the globe to get to know Tejani through the following fine pieces which Simerg was proud to publish in 2012 (and earlier):
“The Seven Ages of Man Redux”
Thank You Letter to Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan – “A Man of Multiple Visions”
“New Hampshire Twilight” and “Iguazu”
A Nature Poem
Exploring Belgium: The Modern and the Medieval
A Letter to Charles Darwin from Galapagos
I was deeply saddened to read about the passing of Mo Tejani. He was a brilliant writer. I have read his works and felt that he treated his subject matter with deep intensity and feelings. Mo’s death is a severe loss to us fellow writers and authors. Rest in peace, my friend. – SHAMLAL PURI, author and journalist, London
Condolences to the family of Mo Tejani, a talented author that I discovered through Simerg. May his soul rest in peace.
It is with utter sadness that Mo’s sister, Shamim, informs me that Mo passed away yesterday. My condolences to Mo’s family, friends and fans.
