KHWAJA MUNIR AHMAD works as an honorary translator at Iran Cultural House. His brothers are bankers in the US. His grandfather was a calligrapher, his father an artist. His great grandfather was sent to Iran as an ambassador in Fateh Ali Shah Quachan’s reign.
Khwaja Ahmad relates these academic achievements in his family with pride. After all, he says, ‘It is in our blood.’ His lineage goes back to Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the founder of Aligarh Muslim University. ‘You have read his stories in books but I have heard them. They have been passing through generations,’ says the 67-year-old Ahmad. He relates an incident concerning Asarus Sanaadeed, authored by Sir Syed. ‘While writing the book on inscriptions of historical buildings in Delhi, it was necessary to see the inscriptions on a building. Sir Syed was a bit heavy and could not climb stairs. So he got a lift made of ropes and four men would pull it up.’ Sir Syed’s home in Daryaganj was sold in 1940. ‘When I go to Old Delhi, I deliberately cross his haveli,’ he says. Ahmad’s desire is to see his grandchildren study at Aligarh Muslim University.

Manpreet Akhter has made a name as a singer of sufiana and folk music. ‘Sur is something which comes straight from the heart,’ she says. She enthralled music lovers with her numbers, Tujhe yaad na meri ayee and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Though the song became popular, the voice has remained relatively unknown.
A lecturer of music in a college in Sangroor, Patiala, Akhter plans to take up singing as a fulltime career. Akhter mesmerized Delhiites during a recent performance at India Habitat Centre.
Influenced by veteran melody queens like Noorjahan and Runa Laila, Akhter started singing at an early age by hearing them over the radio and imitating their voices. ‘These melodies were not only registered in my ears, but deep down in my heart, I needed to listen a song but once, and the song remained in my mind since then,’ she says.
She has sung for Punjabi films and won the mega-finals in Meri Awaz Suno, a popular music shown on DD.
Akhter now plans to shift to Mumbai and establish herself in playback singing. She is ready to mould herself with time and does not mind trying out pop, light classical and ghazals too. Her ultimate wish is to be remembered as a name among names.
