THE LIVES OF FREDA: THE BLOG
Kabir Bedi's vivid and bestselling memoirs, Stories I Must Tell: the emotional life of an actor, reflects tellingly on his closeness to his mother and the lasting influence of Freda Bedi's political and spiritual journeys. I had the privilege of reading the book before publication.
In this interview with the Business Standard, Kabir talks about his parents and his upbringing, and allowing outsiders access to the family archive to tell the remarkable and powerful story of his mother's life.
"It's a crime if family members don't share important materials and writings of their parents. They are not achieving anything when they are gathering dust", Kabir Bedi comments. "I tried to write about my mother but then felt that publishers might think every child believes their mother is great. The story is more credible when it comes from others. They have added to my knowledge of my own mother."
