K A Abbas: Khayalaat ka Saudagar

June is the birth month of K A Abbas. On this occasion, the Khwaja Ahmed Abbas Memorial Trust presents a few memories, stories and anecdotes from his expansive life and career. Working within and outside his archives present at the Saiyidain Manzil, we present here fragments of his writings, cinematic works and reminiscences of his life and friends. It also includes the cultural events organised by the Trust to keep engaging with his legacy and thoughts.
