Fond Memories of Moghul Forebear

Zenobia (née Akmal) Lewis

Today’s Mother Day is no different for me than all the preceding ones over the years as I carry fond memories of a most remarkable lady, who not only nurtured my musical talents but never lost sight of supporting to the utmost my twin sister and older brother in what made them outstanding in their respective fields of accomplishment.

My mother was known for her role as the wife of a senior government officer in the Government of India: whenever the British Commissioner of Delhi was on home leave, my father took over the reins of governing the Capital in an acting capacity; she in turn was particularly outstanding in hosting parties for prominent visitors from abroad and on special occasions celebrating national holidays. She was often referred to as the Moghul Princess, a term that caught on in high society enamored by her beauty and bonhomie.

Dear Readers,
You number over 70,000 in just over 4 years ago back in February 2015, when I first began to put “some of my thoughts, written down” and posted them in the blogosphere. Since that time, many of you have urged me to seek support of my site and my writings by way of donations.

 My blog is about my life. It’s about what I’ve learned through the span of my life. It’s about things I love, and things I know and things I have experienced. I am humbled that so many of you want to join with me in my reflections. If you like what you find here, if it inspires or informs or amuses you, then I am content.

It would mean a lot to me, if you would please consider making a donation of US $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, or whatever amount you deem fit to sustain my work.
And thank you for being a regular reader of the Azim Mayadas Blog!
