The following video documentary on Handwritten Urdu Newspaper in Chennai is simply mesmerizing! The only handwritten Newspaper in the world! And today is Memorial day, a day dedicated to honor the loved ones who are no more.  I am dedicating this write up to Najma, my late wife on this Memorial Day.

I love writing Urdu and there is not a day that I don't scribble something or the other in Urdu. It was a good feeling to see this down-to-the-earth documentary. It was a pleasure to hear about the prevalent secular ethos in that news paper office.

Assalamu Alaykum,
My very respected Imam.Thank you,thank you,thank you. Alhamdu Lillah for the contribution of your time and the initiative efforts
that you took for getting all the Imams together and share their individual thoughts to serve the community is really a Blessing & Niamaa for us. I try to participate in this type of program as it's educational and motivates in bringing peace & unity in the
community. I believe that, the goal of the "Imams Conference" as the title says is more of the Imams jobs,performance in their
respective community and to share each other how to establish better Muslim community .
I humbly request if one of you talk about the role of Imams and how to present a better service in our society .
Jazak Allah Khairun.
