416. Ghulam Muntaqa

Ghulam Muntaqa in action

Senior Photojournalist

Ghulam Muntaqa was a Karnataka Rajyotsava and Karnataka Media Academy award winner. His pictures, taken over six decades, earned him a place among the greats of Indian photojournalism.

His black and white pictures of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru walking with friends with his achkan fluttering in the wind are iconic. They were shot when India’s first Prime Minister arrived here to inaugurate the district stadium in 1962. Since then, Mr. Muntaqa had shot all Prime Ministers with the exception of Lal Bahadur Shastri.
Another one of his achievements was the nine-foot-long negative that included pictures of the Gateway of India and the Taj hotel in Mumbai in a single frame, shot with a rotating camera. It was one of the several innovations that Mr. Muntaqa came up with. He was working on a camera that would rotate on a 360 degree axis, but could not finish it. He leaves behind some immortal moments in Karnataka’s history captured on film and memory chips, a collection of over 300 antique cameras, guns, and scores of bottles of wild honey collected over decades on his hunting expeditions.

His pictures brought out the agony of people waiting for food packets dropped by helicopters during the floods in Bidar taluk, the earthquake of Kilari-Latur, the communal clashes and month-long curfew in Hyderabad and the anti-Sikh riots of Bidar.

His passion was portrait photography. His pictures adorn the walls of the Royals of Hyderabad, religious leaders in Maharashtra and politicians in Karnataka.
He was also known for his ability to adapt to technological changes over the course of his career.
Born to Ghulam Mustafa, a police photographer in the government of the Nizam of Hyderabad, Mr. Muntaqa began shooting pictures when he was 12. He worked for newspapers and magazines in Bidar, Hyderabad and Mumbai.

415. P. K. Abdul Aziz

P. K. Abdul Aziz (also spelled P. K. Abdul Azis) (born 18 January 1947) is a scientist in Ecology and Biodiversity and an academic from India who has published 77 research papers, and has been Vice Chancellor of Cochin University of Science and Technology and Aligarh Muslim University.
He received a D.Sc in Ecology (2002) and a Ph.D (1978) from the Department of Aquatic Biology & Fisheries, University of Kerala.
He led the Department of Ecology and Marine Biology at the Saline Water Conversion Corporation Research and Development Centre, Saudi Arabia as Chairman during 1993-2002.

He was a professor at Kerala University and Kerala Agricultural University before becoming Vice-chancellor of the Cochin University of Science and Technology.

He was the Vice-chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University from June 11, 2007 to January 17, 2012. During his term he initiated a "crackdown" against squatters and put into place ID cards for all students.  The university also signed MoUs with Wisconsin University, Cleveland University, Atlanta University, Johns Hopkins University and New York University and began clearing a backlog of PhD submissions. India Today cited his efforts as leading to a "remarkable turnaround" for the university.. He "stepped down" from the VC office on January 17, 2012during investigation by the CBI. The CBI's interim report released on January 11 had found him guilty of financial impropriety "related to travel concession for family, income tax payment from University funds and purchase of luxury cars" with its determinations about all allegations to be released later in a final report. An earlier two person panel investigating had deadlocked, with one of the members of the panel suggesting the other was "responsible for undue prolonging of the matter" to allow Abdul Aziz to reach a full term as VC. Abdul Aziz's "unceremonious" departure was cited by India Today as evidence of the "waning influence" of the "Malayali lobby" in Delhi. 
He is an ex-officio member of the Maulana Azad Education Foundation.
