A legacy that needs to be restored

"A legacy restored", is a blog based on the memories of my grandfather, Mr. Abdul Sattar.As he sits with his hukkah, blowing it sip by sip, with the smoke forming images of what he calls the glorious past of "Jamia".I with wide open eyes gaze at the smoke, forming images of people, places and incidences...yes those were the days, and with a new found hope in my heart I'll try to give his thoughts a new outlet through this blog. There are repetations, iritation, time constrains ..all part of his age, but still theres hope to nurture the thoughts that have till now remained intact in his minds eye.Don't know if I would ever be able to do justice to his thoughts through my writings , but I wish to grow while I strive to reach my destination.
For now all that I can say is Bismillah...
