I had gone to National Bank to get my pension where I saw Masood Ahmed Barkati sahib.

Masood Ahmed Barkati, has been editing the Hamdard Naunehal, a famous children’s magazine, since 1953.    

 He was there to take his pension too. It was immense pleasure for me to see him after so long. I served Hamdard too for almost a decade, hence everything related to Hakim Said or Hamdard is charismatic for me. I went to him. He was comfortably sitting in a chair. One of the staff was very kind and he did all formalities for Barkati sahib himself.

I went to him and introduced myself. Barkati sahib asked me sit next to him. We talked about old and golden days of Hamdard when Hakim Said was alive.

It is a sophisticated way of dressing up for men of elite class to wear sherwani (long cotton coat) when going out.

I wanted to avail the chance of getting photographed with him. So I requested him for a photograph with me. I was so impressed to see him button up his sherwani. These are values which the new modern generation doesn’t give importance to.

As 78-years-young, he is still editing the magazine and has just brought out a voluminous special annual issue.

It is no exaggeration to say that he has educated and mentally nurtured generations of our children. Those who have been reading ‘ Naunehaal ‘ and now have grown up and have become successful professionals include people  from all walks of life. Many of them are quite prominent in their respective fields, some have even become celebrities.

Barkati Sahib has not only made generations of children read useful, healthy, informative  and educative material through his magazine but he has nurtured and trained many a writer. Barkati Sahib quite humbly dedicates his success to Hakeem Muhammad Said, the moving spirit behind Naunehaal who conceived the idea and who offered Barkati Sahib the post in 1953 and then, according to Barkati Sahib, kept on guiding him till his death in 199

He made my day. May he live long, to illuminate our minds with his wisdom and manners, amen 

Town to town roamed traveler forgot way home

What’s yours what’s mine, forgot mine and thine;

Whence realized mine story is world’s legend

Gladly spent life, forgot grievance and moaning;

 A ray peeped through the darkness feeling shy

Remember the glance, forgot how the face was;

In fun-loving, pleasing, playfully meditatively

Color faded; heart finally forgot wound’s leak;

One glances, one moment of breaths’ string now

When a glance of spirit dies, hard to live a instant;

Who ever to notice, has alike norm in heart,

We remember all; however the era forgot us;

           Some one may say, who said it, what’s in bosom speak,

                                  Said MIRAJI, later regretted, and then forget to speak;
