I lost my father, a noted Urdu Journalist Shri Parwana Rudaulvi on 12 th April 2008. He never compromised on journalistic principles through out his life. He was 74. A true soldier of pen he wrote several books, articles and commentaries for AIR.
He had equal command over English and Urdu languages. He was a very good translator, an encyclopedia. I never saw him using dictionary for translations. He was awarded Dalmia award for National integration.Urdu Academy, Delhi also awarded him for his journalistic career. He was also awarded by UP Urdu Academy for his short stories collection JONK.
Urdu press all over India and Hindi Press in and around Lucknow, Faizabad, Barabanki have given wider coverages to untimely death of a such a rare soul. Daily Rashtriya Sahara Urdu brought out special supplement to pay homage to Shri Parwana Rudaulvi on 14th April 2008.
