Mubahasa: Urdu magazine from Patna

It was a pleasant surprise to see Mobahasa, an Urdu magazine from Patna that is now running into its fourth year.

The 240 page magazine is truly a delight for any connoissuer of Urdu Adab. There are thought provoking articles like Shakilur Rahman’s ‘Ahmad Nadeen Qasmi aur Ghalib’ and Ambar Bahraichi’s ‘Kalidas ke ba’ad Sanskrit ki ishqia shaa’eri’, apart from stories, a special segment of poet Khalid Abadi, poems of Rafat Sarosh, Zaheer Ghazipuri and 20 ghazals of Khursheed Talab.

The Ghazal section also has ghazals of Zafar Gorakhpuri, Krishan Kumar Toor, Alqama Shibli, Abdul Ahad Saaz, Haneef Tareeen, Jaafar Sahni, Tariq Mateen, Khursheed Akbar and many other well known poets. Apart from Zehn-e-Jadid and Naya Waraq, I have seen several other voluminous magazines like Karwan-e-Adab and Intisab (Sironj) but Mobahasa looks different and refreshing.

Wahab Ashrafi is the editor. He is a man of letters and surely the periodical bears his stamp. Humayun Ashraf is Assistant Editor. The subscription is Rs 200 annually from within India, 20, 38 and 43 dollars from UK, USA and Canada respectively. The address is Mobahasa Ashrafi House, Harun Nagar, Sector 2, Patna (Bihar). Mubahisa is a standard magazine and should attain popularity.

    Sir Your life will be an inspiration for coming generation till the end of this immortal world you are the guiding light of new-age world.

    May god bless you to be solution of pillar not part of the problems for the human beings in this world respect and Love each other unto Death.
    I pray to Holy God your intellectual practices of multilingualism will be a concern for core academic communities.
    Because multilingual scholars are a main pillar of global scholarship they make unique contributions that help reform, expand, and enrich the knowledge base of core disciplinary communities this is certainly a widely accepted idea For example, writers, if all knowledge is situated and personal, then periphery perspectives on different disciplines may provide unique insights also views the situation’s of multilingual scholars in their local communities as strength and notes, it affords uniqueness and closeness of perspective in my point view as above cited multilingual scholars enrich the knowledge base of core academic communities in two important ways one they write about things that mainstream disciplinary communities do not know of and two through accessing works that mainstream academic communities and they draw attention to untapped or unknown resources.
    In the light of above statements, it can be argued that limited participation of multilingual scholars in global scholarship will impoverish knowledge production Therefore, it is important that the particular difficulties of multilingual scholars be made public so that the research field can identify ways to help these scholars maintain visibility in the academic forum and contribute more to the core knowledge base.
    Therefore, I congratulate you that, you are one is the best multilingual scholars of global scholarship continuously you are giving your best unique contributions to the scholars those are belongs to the world/planet of different languages and literature. God bless you more and more opportunity to enrich the whole Languages and literature around the world.
    Sir, I appreciating your scripts / writings with generously it will be written in golden words how much I am happy to read it that I have no words to praise you and thanks in future it will play a key role to build-up a high-level good relation between India and your country through a bridge of love and peace .
