Those who have visited this blog must have come to know how indebted this scribe is to Hz Allama Muhammad Iqbal (ra). I have never thought of him as a mere poet, as even before I could read Urdu properly, I had heard from reliable sources that there was a mystic hidden behind the intellectual. Accordingly I have always found him to be an inspiration. Here are a few memorable pictures of Allama along with a recital of his poem Ilm O Ishq (Knowledge and Love) in remembrance of him on the 70th anniversary of his passing from the world.
