Prof Aga Ashraf’s book released
Srinagar, Sept 5: On Teachers Day, Kuch To Likhiyai Ke Logh Kehtay Hein, a book by prominent educationist Dr Aga Ashraf Ali was released Monday at College of Education MA Road.
Interestingly the 341-page book was first recorded on voice recorder by the author and subsequently it was translated in Urdu by his student Prof Syed Habib Ullah. Aga said the English version would be released soon.
He said the book was named so because “people often said that I only speak but don’t write.”
