A Daughter's Tribute

I consider myself to be fortunate for many reasons. Not least, because I am my father's daughter. Among his many gifts to me was the love of Urdu and Urdu poetry.

My father's service to Urdu is evident through his poetry and academic work. The 'world of Urdu' recognises this & his efforts that made Allama Iqbal a household name internationally.

Any discourse on my father would be incomplete without mention of my grandfather, Tilok Chand Mehroom, whose influence and encouragement were instrumental in my father's success.

This website is my tribute to Jagan Nath Azad, my father. I have endeavoured to include information about the varous aspects of his life and work and. I have also included brief details of my grandfather's life & work.

Greetings, Salaam, Namaste, Sat Sri Akaal, dear guest! I hope you will enjoy exploring these pages. [Pammi]
