Remembering The 'Manja Man' Of Hyderabad

The name Mohammed Mansoor Khan might not ring a bell for many kite lovers and sellers, but the name Manja Man will strike people's minds, which is what Mansoor Khan was formerly known for. The Manja maker recently breathed his last at his residence Manju Maya Ka Tabela at Dabeerpura and was aged 90 and is survived by seven sons and one daughter.


 The Manja maker, who was prolific in his work, is a well-known personality in the old city area and is flooded with orders throughout the year. The vendors who set up stalls of kites within the city and in marketplaces in Secunderabad and Hyderabad will never be complete if it doesn't have Mansoor Khan's Manja, which is also a fighting Manja and cutting another kite demands a sharper thread. 


During his last days, a vendor who visited his family recollects how Mansoor Khan had told him to set up his shop early and that the Manja would be ready earlier, keeping in mind closed schools and colleges, which meant more time to fly kites.  The vendor with sorrow says that Mansoor Khan's demise has left a gap that can take a while to get filled. 


The late Manja maker made fighting threads for kites in exchange for money but had a very noble motive of uniting communities into fellowship over the activity of flying kites. The man's respect earned over his lifetime and his motive to unite communities were quite evident as there was quite a footfall for his funeral service.
