Dr Warsi Honored

M. J Warsi, a linguist from Patna and a researcher who teaches in the South Asian Studies Department of the University of California, Berkeley, was recently recognized by the
Chancellor, Robert J Birgeneau, as one of the 200, among the 4000 nominations, “Unsung Heroes” of UC Berkeley.
A gold medallist from the Aligarh Muslim University and a West Bengal Urdu Academy award holder, he has also authored two books, Diploma in Computer Application and Multilingual DTP and Language and Communication (the only book concerning linguistics study on Urdu electronic and print media) helping understand the efficacy of the common contact in languages.
Dr. Warsi has not confined himself to academia but has been very actively involved with the campus community. Dr. Warsi’s journey has been a long and tumultuous one, a saga marked by obstacles, dedication, and tremendous courage in the face of great adversities.
Dr Warsi may have journeyed a long way from being a little school boy in Patna Bihar to the current position of Indo-Aryan languages and linguistics professor at UC Berkeley, he, however has never faltered in conscience and practice in his duties to family and community.
