In short, I have high confidence level that more historiographic material will be obtained, reviewed, compiled and posted online after consultations with academics and scholars in future. The primary objective of this academic exercise is to provide instantaneous access (in an user friendly format) to scholars, researchers, historians and public for their research work etc. I would be sharing additional scholarly works of late Prof. Askari (my grandfather) by enhancing and upgrading the digital sites with abstracts, analysis, summaries, reviews, synopsis, exploration activities, videos, articles/books links, dropbox status, etc. in coming days, weeks and months. Stay tuned, there is more to come…..
