The following are podcasts on the life of Maulana Mohammed Ali Jauhar, based on the book Mohammed Ali: Zaati Diary ke Chand Auraq, (Mohammed Ali: A Few Pages from the Personal Diary), by Maulana Abdul Majid Daryabadi. Maulana Daryabadi had spent many intimate moments with Mohammed Ali, assisting him in editorial tasks of the papers Comrade and Hamdard. Maulana Daryabadi is known for his excellent command over English and Urdu. His style of prose is inimitable. These podcasts are in Urdu but I have added English sub-titles. More episodes, inshaAllah, will follow.
