TABBASSUM o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-06 published
QURESHI, Hifzul Kabeer
By Usman AHMED, Page A22
Friend, scholar, linguist, poet, author, critic, columnist. Born September 4, 1931, in Amarvati, India. Died October 12, 2005, in Richmond Hill, Ontario, of heart and stroke complications, aged 74.
Growing up in a dusty little town in India, who would have imagined that one day his presence would be of immense importance to the Indo-Pakistani community in Toronto. After early education he moved to Nagpur, India for his M.A. in literature. During the riots in 1950 his family moved to Hyderabad. Hyderabad proved to be a fertile ground for his love of literature; he met many scholars and poets. There he worked as a copywriter before getting a teaching post at Nagpur University.
Afterward, he moved to Bombay (now Mumbai) as a freelance writer where his social circle included famous Bollywood movie stars of the day. In 1962, he left India for the U.S. After a brief teaching stint at the University of Chicago, he immigrated to Toronto in 1965 and worked for the Ontario government. However, he never let go of his original passion for poetry and literature. In 1967 he started an Urdu monthly, Sahba, and later another, Armaghan. He established the Urdu Society of Canada. This society organized many international events, conferences and symposiums. His dedication to the Urdu language quickly earned him the title of Baba-e-Urdu (father of Urdu) in Toronto literary circles.
I first met him in July, 1975. I had just started to work for the Ministry of Housing. We met on a short elevator ride. At the time there were very few South Asian faces in Toronto and his warm welcome made me feel comfortable in a new city; we instantly became Friends.
Once we were walking at lunch time when he found two five-dollar bills on the sidewalk. He immediately gave me one saying we should share this windfall. This sense of fairness permeated his character.
In 1960 he married Afroz, younger sister of literary figure Vajida TABBASSUM.
Despite his literary interests and other activities he never short-changed his family life. His younger son, Doctor Rifat QURESHI, tells me he remembers his father for his quiet strength and limitless wisdom. "I was always testing my father, but when I would step over the line - -- one look from him said it all." His first daughter, Farah, says, "Dad had a great impact on me through his actions rather than words. He had no time for idle gossip, waving away such talk with a sense of irritation. He had nothing but understanding and patience for other people's points of view whether he agreed with them or not, he always respected them."
He was an excellent translator. Soon after arriving in Toronto he translated a Government of Ontario booklet titled A Newcomer's Guide to Services in Ontario into Urdu. He also translated many literary works from Urdu and Farsi into English for the benefit of English-speaking literature students. In 1988, he authored An Anthology of Modern Urdu Poetry, considered an authoritative source on the subject. More recently he was working on two books: on cultural and religious issues facing immigrants to North America and on the evolution of the Urdu language. He also took a keen interest in religion, history and contemporary politics.
Kabir loved life. At parties he would entertain with recitations of his latest poems. He enjoyed his Cuban cigars and only reluctantly gave up smoking them during the final couple of years, based less on his doctor's advice than on the spiralling cost of his favourite brand.
In our 30 years of Friendship, I never heard him make a negative comment about anyone. He was a true gentleman; he lived his life with compassionate warmth, welcoming everyone with his heart.
Usman is a friend of Hifzul QURESHI.

TABBITT, Michael John
On June 18 in Ottawa at the age of 68, in the loving company of his former wife Carolyn STRAUSS (Bruce NESBITT) of Ottawa and his cherished partner Mike LEBLANC of Braeside. Greatly missed by his beloved children Nicholas (Susan) of Désertines, France and Samantha of Toronto and grandchildren Alexandra and Sebastian. Also survived by his mother Sybil and brother Peter (Gail) of Toronto. Born in London, he began his theatrical career as an air-raid-shelter busker and boy actor in the West End. A stage producer, director, actor and impresario since he came to Canada in 1954, Michael managed the final act with flair and élan. He was well-known in the theatrical world for his optimism and determination-he always finished every production successfully and on time, including this, his last, a day after Nicholas arrived. He became the poster boy for pancreatic cancer, undergoing experimental chemotherapy and living with the disease for more than four years, to the admiration of his many Friends around the world and the astonishment of the medical fraternity. Michael was in great demand for his skills in producing festivals and expositions, including the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier venue at Expo 67, the Arts Festival at the 1988 Calgary Olympics and Canada's cultural contributions to the Expos in Sydney, Seville, Seoul, Lisbon and Hanover. He and his future business partner set up the Canada Council Touring Office and organized the first cultural exchanges with China. For eight years he was Producer of Special Events at the National Arts Centre, Ottawa. For the time and location of Michael's post-theatre celebration, contact Carolyn at nesbit3@attglobal.net

TABBITT, Nicholas Anthony
On September 22, 2006 in Rennes, France at the age of 34, in the loving company of his mother Carolyn STRAUSS and his stepfather Bruce NESBITT of Washington, D.C. and Ottawa. Greatly missed by his sister Samantha of Toronto, his wife Susan of La Quentinière, his children Alexandra aged 4 and Sebastian aged 2, and Susan's parents Lynn and Bob MONTGOMERY of Newcastle Emlyn, Wales. Also survived by his grandmother Sybil and his uncle, aunt and cousins in Toronto. Predeceased by his father Michael on June 18, 2006, Nicholas was struck by a cerebral haemorrhage on September 9 while he was building a rock garden at home. Despite intensive efforts by hospital staff in Mayenne and Rennes, he never regained consciousness. A kind and generous man imbued with humour, charisma and a passion for life, Nicholas had the rare ability to make his dreams come true. Slated to be an architect, instead he became a professional ballroom-dancing instructor in Ottawa, London, Ontario and London, England. He married his prettiest student Sue, a journalist, and together they bought half of the rural Mayenne village of La Quentinière (near Désertines on the border of Normandy), which Nicholas was restoring. A car enthusiast, he leaves behind four BMWs in various states of assembly. We are inconsolable at the loss of our tall, handsome and vital son, brother, father and husband. For information about his funeral to be held in Ottawa, please contact Carolyn at nesbit3@attglobal.net. Nicholas will be buried beside his beloved grandfather John STRAUSS in Montreal.
