Muslim Saleem, Fazle Hasnain, Nazeer Ahmad Sami in train on December 3, 2010.

During Muslim Saleem’s stay at Allahabad, he became friendly with Asif Usmani, Saghir Hussin Siddiqui, Zafar Ehsanul Haq, Nazeer Ahmad Sami, Dr Abul Lais and Dr Nabi Ahmad. Most of these people are not poets and writers. But they have sharp understanding of poetry and literature. Of them, Saghir Siddiqui has settled in Delhi and Zafar Esanul Haq to Delhi and now Jaipur. Asif Usmani and Nazeer Ahmad Sami are working with Railways. During my visit to Allahabad in December 2010. I had snapped photographs of Asif Usmani and Nazeer Ahmad Sami and of Saghir Siddiqui and Zafar Ehsanul Huq in Delhi. I had posted these pictures on http://khojkhabarnews.com/?p=8559. They are still there, but due to some problems are not easily visible in search engines. With a view to removing this difficulty, I am posting it on urdunewsblog.wordpress.com.

When I (Muslim Saleem) reached Allahabad to stay there at 4, Corporation Flats, Khuldabad, I first came into contact with Nazeer Ahmad Sami and Asif Usman. They introduced me to Fazle Hasnain and thus began the saga of an unending reciprocal sincerity and understanding. Fazle Hasnain spent a lot of time with me and guided me with his invaluable pieces of advices. I am proud that I have such friends as Fazle Hasnain, MA Qadeer, Nazeer Ahmad Sami, Asif Usmani, Sagheer Hussain Siddiqui (who has shifted to Delhi and lives there at Batla House) and Zafar Ehsan-ul-Haq (A resident of Fatehpur, who resided with me for some years at Allahabad and is now in Jaipur). I lived at Allahabad from 1974 to 1979 (Muslim Saleem- January 3, 2012)
