Hectic Schedule & HOPE

Dear All,

As much as I’d hate to, unfortunately there’s been a bit of delay in catching up with you all due to the hectic schedule of late. There was a seminar on Sunday followed by some lectures, meetings and other formal assignments.

Despite all odds, it is so refreshing to see the competitive will and the desire of the youth to succeed. This is indeed an asset and will take Pakistan forward.

On a different note, the IPL drama has resulted in hue & cry from all sectors of Pakistan. It’s iconic how a nation can take it’s eye off a sworn and proven enemy and then rue the losses. It is indeed a universal truth that peace can only be achieved through power and preparation. No doubt Holy Quran has asked us to always be prepared in the best possible ways.

Let’s end on this note that Hope keeps Us Alive & Fear Kills Us. So be hopeful for yourself, your family and your country. We all have the potential and we will take our country forward.
