FOUR AMAZING VIEWS OF M.A. RAHMAN CHUGHTAI
FEW WOULD BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE SAME TODAY
MARC back view under ten

On the compounds of Wazeer Khan mosque and the Naqashi School of Baba Miran Baksh a photograph taken with the back of M.A. Rahman Chughtai and in the distance (group of three) stands a relative Mian Abdullah and the two brothers Abdullah and Abdur Raheem. An amazing memory. Chughtai stands with a senior unrecognized but could be Fazal Din Sahaf. Then on his first marriage day with the other two grooms. Group photograph. Again so rare, obtaining it was a miracle. Then a group photograph at Mayo School of Arts, stands Chughtai artist with his brother Master Abdullah. And then a professional photograph done by a friend of his at that time. The same photograph made into a painting by another artist Mian Abdur Rahman.

Photographs keep alive images long gone and remind us that the same are necessary in the memory of keeping things alive. Enjoy!

  1. The brother Abdullah is there, the other is not Abdur Raheem but another student of Baba Miran Baksh. Sorry!

  2. Interesting effect of changing times, even the mustache changed with time. From a Lahori boy to international gentleman.
