Shafi J. Ahmed MD, known to friends and family as Jakir, is a physician who practices medicine in Flint, Michigan. Transplanted in a country on the other side of the world from the place of his birth, he is ever curious to learn more about himself. He is specially interested to know more about the history of his place of birth and his adopted country for himself and for his next generation.
Dr. Ahmed hopes to contribute to the understanding of South Asian modern history among younger generations who are part of the South Asian diaspora in USA and for the younger generation of South Asian sub continent.
