MEET OUR FRIEND
compilation is a very humble effort on my part. It has been inspired
from a heavily-loaded, ever-green recollection of times shared. The
sheer pleasure of those times past renews friendship which, in turn,
becomes our gift to each other.
This book becomes a story of relationship, with family members and friends, with professional associates and with comrades in voluntary work. Some of these non-family relationships go as far back as half a century.
And some are absolutely beyond the boundaries of times. This anthology was originally intended to be a mildly nostalgic appreciation of the times I personally shared but very soon, understandably the concept expanded to include a large number of other friends and persons as well. Every tribute herein is about a personality beloved to all the respected contributors to this book, the one and only Javed Jabbar."
