Sadequain’s contribution to the field of arts is enormous, his contribution to the field of literature is immense, and his contribution to the nation is unparalleled and unsurpassed by academic standards or in its monetary value. It was for this reason that the newspaper Le Monde of Paris, France commented in its April 1964 edition: “The multiplicity of Sadequain’s gifts is reminiscent of Picasso.”
