Thoroughly enjoyed reading interesting “literary reading”, they are short and very inspiring – leaves a reader motivated to go into more depth and details.
Regarding bilal rajan’s interview he is amazing – the child is born with a mission; he is guided and directed. Bilal is and will be a pride for ismaili community. Excellent questioning on his personal side, his interests and more on his work. so much to learn from this little child. It has set me thinking how can and what can i do to improve this world.
