Kalpana Lajmi is seriously ailing and forgotten by her fraternity

She was the queen of all she surveyed. Kalpana Lajmi was the director to watch out for, the most promising female director since Aparna Sen, when Ek Pal and then Rudaali stormed the festivals and even made a neat profit. Today, at 62, Kalpana is isolated and in desperate need of financial aid for a serious kidney ailment. Kalpana, who used up all her savings to look after her mentor and companion Bhupen Hazarika in his dying days, is isolated and all but forgotten. Shockingly, the bio-pic on slain actress Priya Rajvansh which Kalpana was supposed to direct, has quietly passed on to another director. A sure sign that the film industry has forgotten her. In this hour of need, only a few close friends Neena Gupta, Ila Arun and Soni Razdan are there by Kalpana's side. In fact, Soni, we came to know, is trying to organize a regular fund »
