    Actually, if I remember it correctly – in old English manuscripts from 18th and 17th century, U was written as V ?????
    Is this guy an expert in old English script?

    Fasiq, please write within normal range. For the waco stuff, leave it to our resident Kabirdas wannabe

    my very very dear and respected Balma jee….our very dear KD came very late in my life and claims to be leaving eventually…..I have been doing the waco stuff for a very very long time….allow me to narrate a relevant tale….

    Once upon a time in a far flung fairyland called the jamshedtown …i went to a law school…at that time we had only one …now I have plenty…lol
    we had hedaya translated by sir charles hamilton in the syllabus….saw it in college library…read it …liked it…so I asked papa to get it for me….he knew many famous publishers and booksellers and got unbelievable discounts….he was so happy that I asked for a book …immediately called his friend the famous bookseller….the book was delivered ….but to my greatest surprise …it appeared to be very different from what I had read in the college library…I was absolutely furious……and in my rage I wrote this…


    months(days) away from the final exams…. I had to learn to differentiate in the typeset….in my mind before reading this book in preparing for the final exams….


    soon I begin to enjoy it….it improved my reading ability and removed all fears and phobias whatsoever….for ever….

    PS:my handwriting has improved manifolds since…lol

    Which law college in Jamshed Town?
    Islamia College?

    By the way, I am reading ‘White Mughals’ these days and it quotes passages from 18th and 19th century East India Company record, and the English they use or write is quite different…..Great writing style though, even if bit formal.

    Many years ago, at a library somewhere I was reading British Parliamentary proceedings from 1799….(I wanted to know what those ass-holes were saying about Tipu Sultan…..I head trouble figuring out if I was reading ‘f’ or ‘s’ or if I was reading ‘V’ or ‘U’. I head to guess it from the word I was trying to read.
    Old buildings in Karachi have similar script I believe. Someone could check out Frere Hall, before our land mafia demolishes it to build ugly and badly maintained building – with bra hanging – lungi flying balconies!

    thanks for putting images of the law book.
