Prof. Andrabi remembered

Jammu: A seminar was organized here on 10 February to condole the death of Prof Amin Andarabi, an authority on Iqbaliyat, an educationist and litterateur. During the seminar the state Academy of Art, Culture and Languages came under intense attack from luminaries over its dismal performance to promote and preserve the Kashmir cultural and literary legacy. The speakers cited the example of the death of a person of Andrabi’s stature, where the state’s literary society failed to organize even a single meeting to mourn his death. 

Prof. Mohammad Zaman Azurda presided over the seminar titled Prof. Amin Andarabi-Fan and Shakhsiyat, organized by Rasa Javedani Memorial Literary Society, while Ved Bhasin, editor-publisher of Kashmir Times was the chief guest. Farooq Nazki, media advisor to the state chief minister, Mrs Nusrat Andrabi, Prof. Zahuruddin, Balraj Puri, Dr Shohab Inayat Malik and Aseer Kishtwari shared the presidium.

Prof. Zahuruddin, a close friend of Prof. Andrabi while presenting his paper Bicharna Ek Dost Ka, which was a moving tribute depicting the excruciating pains of separation, recited a couplet: 
Yaad-e-Mazi azab hai yarab
Chheen le mujhse hafiza mera.

Referring his close association with Prof. Andrabi which dates back to seventies, he stated that Andrabi was a regular participant in all the seminars organized by Dept. of Urdu, Jammu University and as a reciprocative gesture he too would attend all seminars organized by Iqbal Institute, run by Andrabi. When the situation worsened in the Valley, the Urdu dept. started hosting programs organized by Iqbal Institute. 

ML Shah termed Prof. Andrabi as a towering personality who played an important role in the promotion of Urdu. Ved Bhasin paid his rich tribute to the late professor. 

Mr Nazki overwhelmed with emotions said that in his demise he suffered the death of self and one could not pay tributes to one's self.

Andrabi’s widow Nusrat Andrabi thanked RJML society and all the participants to keep alive the memories of her husband. She said, no doubt the ‘life’ has been taken out of her life, but the overwhelming support she received from people has reassured her that she would be able to walk on this lonely life.
