“I have gathered a posie of others men’s flowers
and nothing but the thread that binds them is my own.”
- Lord Wavell

This website is dedicated to our grandchildren Mehr, Shaan, Ruban and Firoza.

I am not a writer nor is this any original work. What is presented here is some factual information of interest, gleaned out of various books; mostly old , borrowed from British Council library at Calcutta and New Delhi.

I have tried to give adequate reference wherever available. I may please be excused, if I cannot trace the ones missing in my jottings of over a quarter of a century.

It is my privilege to share some of these information of interest with you. I shall endeavour to augment these once a week. Insha-Allah.

Your views are most welcome!
