My thoughts on this book: This book must be an inspiration to all to teach with more zest and to aspire to leadership positions. It is also a biographical sketch to illustrate the above. The impetus is also there for everyone to write their own life story because it is unique and gives you a sense of purpose. Your life has a message for someone in the seven billion that live on this planet. The difference between heaven and hell is just one deed. Perhaps the one finds your life story meaningful and changes for the good, you would have written your deed that Allah favours. Need I say more? Read on and write on.
Mr.C.Watsa:”Yawar when you walk down a poorly lit road at night, sometimes you see shadows which look frightening. But if you keep on walking you come to the shadow and realise that it is only a light pole or something like that. The shadow looked frightening but the reality is something we with everyday.” Actual quote of teacher to pupil.
