Syed Yousuf Sarmast - In Loving Memory

Here is a beautiful memorial by the grandchildren of Professor Syed Yousuf Shariffudin Sarmast - shared with us all on his birthday - 28th December.


A lovely collaboration between 3 cousins - Zara Junaid Sarmast, Nisa Rizwan Sarmast, Anaa Fatima Sarmast - who wrote letters to their Grandfather and made a video sharing their perspective of their grand-dad with the world. A beautiful way to honour and remember someone who was so important to so many of us.


I had a wonderful grandfather, one who in my eyes never grew old and one whose heart was solid gold.
