"Many many memories
come to our minds as we think of him. He achieved in his life, for our
community, that which could only have been accomplished normally in a period
of many generations. The tributes that the world has paid him bear honest
testimony to his great life and work."
- Takht Nashini, Karachi, January 23, 1958
"You have said, Mr.
President, some very kind words about my late grandfather, my late father
and myself. My grandfather was a most gifted person, and amongst his many
qualities, one of them had always particularly impressed me. While the
past was a book he had read and re-read may times, the future was just
one more literary work of art into which he used to pour himself with deep
thought and concentration. Innumerable people since his death have told
me how he used to read in the future, and this certainly was one of his
very great strengths. As a child I used to listen to him for many hours
on end and I think, in fact I am convinced, that it was his inspiration
which has created in me such a strong interest in the future, while at
the same time, guiding me to learn from the teaching books of the past."
