Note
  • Ustad Ramzi was the head of a pahalwan clan and the custodian of a wrestlers' akhara. He was a man of frugal speech and austere habits, and appeared to some a stern man. His imposing stature, a heavyset jaw, and upturned whiskers only reinforced this impression. He was one of those men who do not accept the futility and emptiness of life, but who try continuously to give it meaning - a reflection of their own life's purpose
