India has been a land of sufi, saints, sufi scholars, researchers and academic cum spiritual traditions. Since thousand years people of India have been celebrating their relationship with those great pesonalities who have enriched India with their contributions in the field of Tasawwuf and spirituality, but it is matter of big grief that their academic works are lost in the darkness of history, though preserved in the libararies in the form of manuscripts but still not published.
