Musing 500: Rafi 204. Thomas Daniel, my friend

I first read about him on Greta's blog. He seemed to be quite knowledgeable about Indian and Pakistani films. Later I learned about his expertise in VHS/VCD restoration. I saw a few samples that he used to distribute as multi-part ISO files. The difference between the quality of the original VHS tapes and his final DVD-quality videos was magical. We became friends and, later, I also contributed a lot of videos that I had from my own collection and the collections of Dr Manohar Lal Kapur and late Amarjit Singh Anand. 

Also I would like to mention here that although I ended up writing the book on Edwina, Tom is the one who actually interviewed her and graciously allowed me to use his material in the book. Thanks Tom!

He posts his videos on YouTube, focussing on early films, for which the copyright has expired.
