Cartoonist from Bombay
By Sharon Boase

A funny thing happened on the way to animation school for India's Ajit Rao. The 32-year old former architect, cartoonist and resident of Bombay started his first term at the International Summer School of Animation at Sheridan College in May. But not without a few dramatic pit stops along the way.

A student of sculpture and drawing at a Bombay art school last February, Mr. Rao heard that Barry Parker, a Canadian animation instructor from Sheridan College, was in town presenting animation workshops and helping to judge the animation portion of the International Bombay Film Festival.

Without knowing Mr. Parker-or the formalities of an introduction- Mr. Rao sought out the Canadian animation guru from the world-renowned animation school for some feed back on his own work.
