  3. جناب بہت خوشی ہوئی یہ دیکھ کر کہ اس ملک میں بھی ایسا کام ہو رہا ہے- میرا براہ راست تعلق تو اس شعبہ سے نہیں لیکن میں نے ایک پراجیکٹ شروع کیا ہے جس مین دنیا کے مختلف چڑیاگھروں کے جانور و پرندوں کی تصاویر کھینچ کر ان کا اردو تعارف لکھ رہا ہوں-
    لیکن بہت ساری انواع کے نام بس من و عن ترجمہ کر کے لکھتا ہوں کہ باوجود کوشش کے بھی کوئی مستند اردو ناموں کی کتاب یا حوالہ ڈھونڈ نہیں پایا۔
    اللہ آپ کو لمبی زندگی دے اور مزید تحقیق کرنے کی طاقت فراہم کرے
