When I was at AMU

When I was at AMU, I never bothered to figure this out but once I was away from AMU after completing my education, I always looked out for Aligs. So, what are the traits that hint at the other person being be an aligarian, too. The question is: How do we search for an Aligarian when we are travelling, staying in a Hotel, visiting public places, and so on. In other words, what rings a bell...

Let me pen down the traits that I use to spot Aligarians in this crowded world.

I look for:

* Someone who carries an AMU tarana ringtone on the cellphone.
* Someone who speaks good Urdu.
* Someone who looks graceful in appearance.
* Someone who greets people with a loud "Salam Alaikum" without feeling shy about revealing his identity.
* Someone who eagerly responds to a "Salam alaikum" with a "Salam alaikum" and not an obvious "Walekum As-Salaam".
* Someone who respects seniors, older people irrespective of their economic status like waiters, rickshaw pullers, or porters.
* Someone who is young but wears Sherwani, maybe, without a cap :-) (Like our Aligarian student union leaders).
* Some who can crack the humorous one liners while watching a movie in a theatre.
* Someone who can talk about any topic under the sun with the same interest and intensity as for his hobby horse.
* Someone who uses words like jugaad, bhasad, intro, backing, lobby, dhaba, chay, +2, PUC, and mass bunk in his/her conversations.
* Someone who adresses other unknown people of his age with "partner" as in: Partner, ye bus kahan jaaegi..

Better Bathroom

When my home is in the process of renovation, I started searching the internet for the best deals because through this i sves lots of money.

I found some really good items at Their inventory is out of this world and I loved what they had to offer for our period style home. The bath tub I just adore and worked so well in that home. Even though we wanted to keep things in that type of decor, I still love a great free standing shower. Have to be modern sometimes for a betterbathrooms!!

What else I loved about is how they offer Bathroom Suites. Meaning, you can buy you shower, potty and sink all together and my goodness the prices are great!!

The tiles they are offering now are up to 50% off and I love the standard black and white floors. They have stone, travertine and porcelain tiles to choose from. Plus all the items you need to lay those tiles. I really love the under the floor heating in the bathroom. Keeps your feet nice and warm on those cold days.The website have a lot of groups of bathroom furniture. You can discover a lot of groups of modern stage beds, sofas, chairs, vanity units, benches, computer tables, rugs and other more products. You can choose these finished the network through the Internet. They offered free delivery for their clients.

Maulana Azad Library, Amu

The Library complex of the University consists of a Central Library and over 80 college/departmental libraries. Libraries of the colleges, institutes and departments, cater to the needs of postgraduates and students of professional courses.

The University has established Book Banks for the benefit of students of certain professional courses. The Central Library was set up in 1875, when this institution was established as Madarsatul Uloom. In 1877, the Madarsa became Mohammadan Anglo-Oriental College. Lord Lytton, the viceroy of India, laid the foundation stone, and the library was named after him as Lytton Library. Eminent scholars like Gardner Brown, Arnold, Releigh, Horowitz, Storey and Auchtelpone functioned as honorary librarians in addition to their teaching responsibilities.
In 1960, it was named as Maulana Azad Library when the first Prime Minister, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, inaugurated its present building. The Seven storied building is surrounded by 4.75 acres of land in the form of beautiful lawns and gardens. It is the most beautiful building of the University and one of the few very attractive libraries in the country. The Library has about 9,00,000 books

The collection consists of books, periodicals, pamphlets, manuscripts, paintings and photographs. M.A. Library performs the functions of a National Library so far as its collection of Oriental manuscripts are concerned. It is because of these rich collections of immense research value that this Library is reckoned among major libraries of the world. The oldest manuscript owned by the library is more than fourteen hundred years old. It is a fragment of the Holy Quran transcribed by Hazrat Ali, the fourth caliph of Islam and is written on parchment in Kufi script. Another rare collection is the Halnama of Beyazid Ansari, no copy of which is available anywhere else in the world

The Library has a sizeable collection of early printed books in various languages. The most outstanding among them is the Latin translation of the celebrated Arabic work on optics, opticam prafatis, by Ibn-al-Haitham (965-1039) published in 1572

There are several farmans (decrees) of the Mughal kings like Babur, Akbar, Shahjahan, Shah Alam, Shah Alamgir, Aurangzeb etc. Another prized possession of the library is a “Shirt” on which the whole Quran is inscribed in khafi script. This shirt is believed to have been worn by a warrior of Mughal army

Among the large collection of Mughal paintings is the painting of Red Blossom, which is magnum opus of Mansoor Naqqash, the celebrated court artist of Emperor Jahangir. Some valuable Sanskrit works translated into Persian have also been preserved in the library. Other possessions worth mentioning is the Ayurved in Telugu and the Bhasa’s in Malyalam script written on palm leaves. Abul Faiz Faizi, an eminent scholar of Akbar’s court translated several Sanskrit works into Persian, such as Maha Puran, Bhagvat Gita, Mahabharat and Lila Wati, these are also available.

More than 5,000 students, teachers and other members of the university daily visit the library and utilize its services. For further details visit Maulana Azad Library Website

Now M.A libaray gots new developments like centrally air-conditioned reading rooms, the new news paper & magazine reading area on the G.floor, online catalogue search for books from any place with in the library premises (we expect they come on the internet soon) & after all new parking space for cycles & bikes

The Famous Marris Road

Marris Road is indeed one of the most important streets in Aligarh. The distnguished status of this street comes from the beautiful, large and palatial bungalows and Kothis situated on the both sides of this road. According to a very senior Aligarian in Hyderabad, there used to be days when Marris Road was called Paris Road because of the rich and elite who inhabited those bungalows. All of them were highly educated, cultured and sophisticated and had an exquisite taste of art and literature.

Coming to my time of Aligarh, most of these kothis and bungalows had lost their charm and grandeur but some of them simply couldn't resist telling the stories from their glorious past. With vicinity to city's railway station and the most happening commerical area - Centerpoint, most of these kothis are now being shrouded by shops and shopping complexes coming up on the roadsides and in some way, helping the majestic bungalows in hiding their pitiful state.

While, there is one reason which accounts for the loss of value of Marris Road, there is another gaining importance and momentum. The Women's college and Abdullah Hall (AMU Girls' Hostels) have their main gates on Marris Road. Most of new and happening Eating points and dating spots are like adding more taste to the relishing gravy.

So, the reasons may change but M for Marris Road remains the same - the place to be, that is.
