Late Dr Wazir Agha’s Career and work (part 2)

His articles titled ‘Nazam-e-Jadeed Ki Karwatein (1963), Tanqeed Aur Ehtesaab (1968), ‘Naye Maqaalaat’ (1972), ‘Naye Tanaazur’ (1979), ‘Ma’ani Aur Tanaazur (1998), ‘Tanqeed Aur Majlisi Tanqeed’ (1975), ‘Daairey Aur Lakirein’ (1986), ‘Tanqeed Aur Jadeed Urdu Tanqeed’ (1989), ‘Inshaiye Kei Khad-o-Khaal’ (1990), ‘Saakhtiat Aur Science’ (1991), ‘Dastak Us Darwaazey Par’ (1994) and ‘Imtizaji Tanqeed Ka Scienci Aur Fikri Tanaazur’ (2006) fall in the same category.

Over time, she has amended her point of view and now says that instead of centrality.
