Syed Mohammad: Famous Advocate, Poet, Politician & A Man of Many Hats

On 27th September 1978, Syed Mohammad Advocate, my grandfather and one of the famous lawyers of North Bihar passed away in Muzaffarpur leaving a deep void in the legal profession at that time. As a little over six years of age, I have a faint memory of his huge funeral procession being attended by men cutting across religion and caste and sect.
