  1. Thnx Vinny for your efforts in arranging this AIR interview of Late Nadim Sahib. I enjoyed it immensely n was nostalgic also My above statement may seem to be generalised at first but post retirement my father joined Lal Ded school as private teacher, and Nadim Sahib was principal ( He too has rtd from social welfare dept /Red cross which he had joined in the later part of his career ) He used to share some anacdotes with my father n who in turn , at times, narrated them to me way back in 80s.I was reminded of them when listening to the interview .
