PROF. WAHAB DANISH REMEMBERED
Jamshedpur: Following death of Prof. Wahab Danish, an emergency meeting of Jamshedpur cell of Anjuman Taraqqi-e-Urdu was convened at the office of Sunflower Press. Office-bearers paid rich tributes to Prof. Wahab. A noted poet, Prof. Wahab Danish had been ill for long and died on 25 March.
Speaking on this occasion, joint secretary, Anwar Adeeb said Wahab Danish was a poet of unique style the like of whom would not be seen now not only in Jharkand but in the whole of India. He was a poet of nazm but his ghazals are of peculiar individual style. Recalling an incident Joga Singh Anwar said when Urdu Conference in Delhi was held in 1988, he was with him. Wahab Danish had left an indelible impression on the audience by his speech then, Singh said.
Secretary Shams Faridi said there is acute brilliance in the nazms of Wahab Danish. There was an eccentricism in his personality which can be observed in his poetry, Faridi said. His collections Lab-e- Muhas was published some years ago. President Syed Raza Abbas Rizwi “Chhabban” expressed profound grief over Prof. Wahab’s demise. Rizvi said although his works were often published in prominent literary magazines of India, Shabkhoon, the most prominent Urdu magazine in India and Pakistan would publish his nazms with great care.
WEEKLY ALIGARH PRESS LAUNCHED
New Delhi: With a title slogan to be the “Muslim’s first ever social and political weekly”, Aligarh Press, launched last month claims to compete with contemporary print media. The eight-page tabloid’s third issue has announced to increase its size with a 16-page issue from its next edition. The name Aligarh Press is somewhat illusory to give an impression of the paper’s attachment to Aligarh Muslim University or the town housing AMU. But there is nothing as such, though the issue at hand gives a good coverage to AMU campus buzz.
With glossy paper and colourful photos, prominently on front and last pages, will the paper survive or die down soon, only time will tell. One such glossy tabloid was launched about two years ago with graphic images of Bollywood stars, but it was not seen after its first edition.
With Arif A Khan as editor-in-chief, Aligarh Press has some familiar names with media. Hope it survives in the media market.
