Dr Aziz ki Ajab Khani (The strange tale of Dr Aziz)

Naved Masood*

This ‘tale’ is about Dr Aziz-ur Rahman (1928-73) an Indian Chemist who left the country on account of career related frustrations and found name, fame and meteoric rise in of all the place in Argentina, becoming a Vice Chancellor and one of the founding fathers of research in Chemistry in that country. It is also a tale of the strange quirks that life took in a particular family. The moral of our story is that it proves that truth is indeed at times stranger than friction.

I always used to think Timbaktu is a fictitious name until recently when it surfaced on international news due to ransacking and burning of an ancient library which has a great treasure of Islamic manuscripts which is there for centuries and its sons protected it with their lives. Like millions relived to know that the manuscripts are safe and sound.

It was very nice on the part of Darul Musannefin Shibli Academy to write Maarif Editorial/Shizraat on Timbuktu
This is very informative and you will enjoy reading it. Thanks to Prof. Ishtiyaq Ahmad Zilli for writing this piece in the editorial of oldest Urdu surviving journal Maarif which is going to complete a century of its existence very soon.

Here is the link for Maarif which has this editorial/Shizraat;
