Abstract

Strange that a man who lived such a full life, should have it shown squeezed between two dates, as if they were bookends! But when a life is that full, that well-lived, and has influenced so many, then dates and death are mere statistics – only of theoretical interest. The true value and meaning of the man lives on, with his work. And our memories of him. Ansar Zahid Khan was born on the very first day of the year 1934, in Agra one of the most well-known cities of the then-undivided Indian subcontinent. His early schooling Matriculation and Intermediate was done through the Allahabad Board, in 1948 and 1950 respectively. He obtained a 1st division in matric, and solid 2nd in subsequent examinations. Agra University was his alma mater for his Bachelor’s (1953) and Master’s (in History, 1955), as well as B.T. His last examination passed in India was Adib Kamil, from Jamia Urdu, Aligarh. He obtained his Ph.D. in History (1974) from the University of Karachi, Pakistan.
