    Shukriya. There is confusion about the age of Zia Jalandhari. However, I have rectified it as per your suggestion.

    Thanks for the correction. There is no confusion, you had yourself correctly written that he joined All India Radio in 1945 (at the age of 22, obviously he couldn’t have at the age of 12). Besides I have his ID card. I am his daughter !
