Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Truth Prevails

Only goes to show what the ground realities are.
Some one who has seen it up close knows more than anyone who speculates or let’s others perspectives shade their eyes.

Very Interesting Debate – PRIVACY In the New Age!

What If: Privacy Becomes a Luxury Good?

Privacy and DATA are inexorably connected in a loop of ‘need vs want’.

This means a new economic debate fundamentally.
I think that is starting next after 5 years. Interesting Age to live in!!!

Edhi’s Recognition by White House

White House yesterday puts out a statement acknowledging Edhi’s accomplishments.


Abdul Sattar Edhi was one of the world’s great humanitarians. From the medical clinic he established in Karachi, Pakistan almost 60 years ago, he and his wife Bilquis created a vast network of social services for Pakistan’s most vulnerable, encompassing nursing homes, orphanages, soup kitchens, maternity wards, women’s shelters, rehabilitation centers, and the largest voluntary ambulance fleet in the world. Even as his foundation’s operations expanded beyond Pakistan’s borders, Edhi still often drove his own ambulance, personally caring for the injured.

Edhi led a life dedicated to serving others, and his determination to provide equal treatment for all–regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, or class–stands as a sharp rebuke to those who would use fear and violence to create divisions. We offer our condolences to Bilquis and their four children, the millions of people around the world whose lives he touched, and to the people of Pakistan, who have lost a heroic servant of humanity. ‎

White House Statement

In my view he was off the same league as Mother Teresa – a very very Nobel circle!

Abdul Sattar Edhi

Shame on the Nobel Committee, for not giving this truly noble man the rightful prize while he lived.
I feel the reason that Edhi never accepted international donations, was a big factor why the Nobel Committee would not pay heed to his trans-formative contributions.

Edhi

He was not just a man. He was a phenomenon.
A man with a vision and only his God above, to make that vision happen.

His principles and his character is a remarkable example for Pakistan’s youth to learn from.
He is the ideal that exemplifies what ‘service above self’ is all about.

I always yearned to meet this man – yet I never could!
I hope as he passed away today 9th of July 2016 (Night of Shawwal 3rd), he passes this spirit over to a person who can take this vision and transcend it a thousand fold over.

May you rest in peace, Edhi Sahib.
I honestly admired you above myself.

God Bless You, Immeasurably.
Rest in true Peace.
