Sare Jahan Se Accha

Hindustan Hamara

In 1905 more than 100 years from today, when Iqbal was a lecturer at the Government College, Lahore he was invited by his student Lala Hardayal to preside over a function. Instead of making a speech, Iqbal sang Sare Jahan Se Accha Hindustan Hamara in his style. Iqbal compiled this poem in praise of India and the poem preaches the communal harmony that had unfortunately started ceasing in India by that time. Each and every word in this poem depicts an Indian’s respect and love for the motherland and the values the Indian society inherited for long...Read Full

Meher Tabassum is a Scientist working at Division of Remote Handling and Robotics, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India. She is a Government of India employee, with an official status of Class I Gazetted Officer.


Me: I was born in Hyderabad, AP to a highly civilized and educated Sunni Muslim family. Since my father was on a transferable government job, I traveled along with him to many places all over India. At present I am residing in Anushaktinagar, a BARC residential colony in Mumbai, India. I am passionate about engineering, travel, books, fashion and antiques. I hold a good collection of rare and old coins and stamps.


Family: My parents are my role model. I am always grateful to my illustrious father Mr. M F R Hyder who diligently served the Geological Survey of India, as a Drilling Engineer till he retired and provided me with guidance and support all throughout my life. My loving mother Mrs. Paiker Jamal is a simple lady with exotic knowledge of Islam, governance and general knowledge. She nurtured me with good moral values and inspired me to live a humble simple life. That makes me prefer to go on a bicycle to office and not to fail to spend the day in my life without 5 times namaz for my Allah. I have an asset of many supporting relatives and friends including my husband. My life also revolves around my small beautiful daughter Hana, who is a very intelligent and creative girl.


Education: I attended St. Joseph Convent High School and St. Francis De Sales college, Nagpur for my 10th & 12th respectively. I received my Bachelors’ degree in the year 1995 from Nagpur University and my Masters in Electronics Engineering from Aligarh Muslim University in the year 1998. Before joining BARC, I acquired Diploma in Nuclear Engineering from BARC training school.


Profession: My first job as a lecturer was in Women Polytechnic, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, from April 1997- May 1998. I taught subjects like Microprocessor and Computer to Diploma Engineering students making my primary goal to ensure the best quality of education & to give practical knowledge to each student.


Presently I work as a Scientific Officer in Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India, since 1998. My contribution is in the research and development of various Robotics and Mechatronics systems such as Automatic Liquid Scintillation Counting System, Remote Contact Perception and Force Reflection for Parallel Manipulator, Tele-presence laboratory, Mobile Vehicle with Slave Manipulator, Parallel Manipulator, Articulated 6 DOF DC Servo Robotic System, SCARA Robot Controlled Liquid Scintillation Detection System, Moderator Heat Exchanger Inspection System Project for NPC-NAPP, Narora, India etc. focusing primarily on their control electronics, embedded systems and programming.


Extra Curricular Activities: I am very active in sports and play badminton, carrom and table tennis right from my school days and had won many prizes. Recently I participated in DAE sporting event for athletics. I held responsible positions from school to colleges taking keen interests in cultural, art and academic talent competitions. I am a member of Association of Muslim Professional and RRF foundation.


Young Muslim: I want to get involved in combating the new challenge of educating our young generation and establishing a think tank to make the future generation of Indian Muslims motivated towards the pursuit of Education. I have a dream of “No Muslim child in India to be left behind for education”.


The message I wish to give to our Young Muslim is to consider Education not just a means to conquer the outer space but also the inner space, so that we must be able to conquer the atom as well as our prejudice. We must learn to clean the pollution of the air and also not allow to pollute our souls and heart. I believe Education in this century is extremely important as never before, to face the complex and unique challenges that the mankind is facing all over the world today. We need young Muslims to be educated to make this world more secure and peaceful, to understand and communicate more intelligently, to negotiate, to agree to disagree respectfully, to resolve mutual conflicts in amicable and civilized ways, to demand Justice and human rights in a democratic way and also to learn to compromise in the interest of Peace and humanity.


Indian Muslims: Islam attaches great importance to the acquisition of Education. The time has come for the Indian Muslims to embark in search of Education and Knowledge. Every Muslim parent must understand that their future depends on how well they educate their children. Parents must teach their children that only through Education they can achieve whatever they dream and wish and live a respectable life. Education must not be acquired just to get a better paying job, but to brighten our lives with awareness, confidence and to see what is coming in future. All Indian Muslims should contribute to build individuals and our beloved country India, all along positive and progressive lines.
