Jawwad Iqbal


Project Description

Jawwad Iqbal lives in Old Delhi and is a member of Delhi Youth Welfare Association, which manages the Hazrat Shah Waliullah Public Library in Old Delhi. Jawwad not only reads and apprehends the rich and valuable texts, many of them dating to early 19th century, but also contributes in preservation and restoration of the thousands of books there. It was, in fact, the deteriorating conditions of the books (read the history and heritage of Shahjahanabad), that got him involved in the e-Heritage
fellowship of UNESCO and Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF). Presently, Jawwad is an associate in American Telephone and Telegraph and works for Convergys. He is also pursuing Law and
publishes posts as Turram_Khan on Purani Dilli Walon Ki Baatein page and holds the post of Secretary in Tareekh, Art and Culture Trust.
