KULLIYĀT-E KHUTBĀT-E SIR SAYYID (THE COMPLETE LECTURES OF SIR SAYYID)

Kulliyāt-e Khutbāt-e Sir Sayyid (The complete lectures of Sir Sayyid) is a compilation of three volumes and captures 202 lectures of Sir Sayyid. The first lecture was on 5th Nov 1859 in Moradabad, and the last one was on 3rd Jan 1898 at Aligarh, spanning 39 years. Cities covered include Agra, Aligarh, Allahabad, Amritsar, Azamgarh, Batala, Benares, Bhopal, Calcutta, Delhi, Ghazipur, Gorakhpur, Gurdaspur, Hyderabad, Jalandhar, Lahore, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Meerut, Mirzapur, Moradabad, Muzaffarnagar, Patiala, Patna, Rae Bareli, Shahjahanpur and even London in this vast journey of the legendary reformer and educationist. As the language used by Sir Sayyid was primarily Urdu, and only two lectures were in Persian, so this work is in Urdu, and a subsequent translation in other languages is on the cards. Earlier only 98 lectures were compiled by Ismail Panipati in 1972 from Lahore. Therefore, additional 104 lectures are extracted from Aligarh Institute Gazette, Tahzib-ul Akhlaq, reports of AIMEC, reports of Scientific Society and other primary sources.

This monumental task has been accomplished by Dr. Ata Khursheed of Maulana Azad Library, Aligarh Muslim University. We were fortunate to celebrate the bicentenary birth celebrations of Sir Sayyid in 2017 and the centenary of AMU in 2020. But the need for such a book was of utmost importance for everyone. One must study the primary source, and lectures are the best medium as they convey the essence of any individual. The letters, articles and books are in some way or the other inclined towards a subjective approach. This book is a must, at least for every Alig, as a student of the Aligarh Movement and also for all non-Alig who want to understand the Vision and Mission of Sir Sayyid. As a team, Mr. Atif Hanif is instrumental in publishing and promoting this work. You can have this book via courier in any city. Aligarh Movement Zindabad!

ANKUSH DAYS
the story of Ishtiaq mahout of Corbett Tiger Reserve
by
Aqeel Farooqi

ABOUT THE BOOK:
This book tells the story of legendary mahout Ishtiaq. He actively served in the Corbett Tiger Reserve during the eighties and nineties. Corbett Park goers from that period are sure to have had the pleasure of an elephant safari with Ishtiaq and his elephant Rumbha. He was an excellent raconteur of jungle tales, drawn from his lifetime experience of forest life. His humour, wit and dialect were unmatched, and when he held forth on exciting stories of the 'tayger' - as he pronounced tiger - it used to be spell-binding.... He is no more, but a man like Ishtiaq needs to be talked about and remembered. He was a veritable storehouse of jungle lore, and had great stories about Corbett Park, its tigers, its maneaters, the tiger hunts that he was a part of, during times when royals and forest officers actively pursued shikar. The author’s recollections about Ishtiaq’s narratives are quite vivid, and he has penned them all in this book.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Aqeel Farooqi is an M. Sc (Zoology) and an MBA. He is a retired government officer, based at Lucknow. He has served for 31 years in the Uttar Pradesh State Transport Department. His passion for forests and wildlife has been consistent and undeterred all through his life. He has been voluntarily involved with conservation organizations like WPSI and IBCN. He has spent a lot of time in learning and imbibing the nuances of jungle craft from his forest sojourns and interactions with people involved with wildlife and its conservation. This is his first book.
