Shinan Govani is a Canadian columnist who has written for Town & Country, Tatler, Vanity Fair, The Daily Beast and Air Mail. He says writing about people never gets boring. “Like F. Scott Fitzgerald once put it, ‘Character is plot, and plot is character.’’’ Profiling Monika Deol for this issue was a nostalgia-inducing exercise, because she was one of very few Indo-Canadians that Govani saw in the media, growing up.
