Firstly let me express my gratitude towards all for making ‘get to-gethers’ for Educate Sindh (ES) members such a friendly and encouraging platform. I would not be exaggerating when I say that these kinds of activities by our dedicated and participating members put my spirits high and itself are an encouragement to all members. Having said that, I would like to quote “The bitter and the sweet come from the outside, the hard from within, from one’s own efforts.” — Albert Einstein
In today’s world where concepts like technology, digital media, distant learning and Consumerism are a novelty, I believe it’s all about initiative determination and hard work. This is why we started this and working towards making it a healthy culture so that it becomes a platform for networking and we contribute to the betterment of our fellow brothers.
I sincerely believe that Mr. Safeeullah Soomro, Mr.Shah Muhammad Butt,Mr. Aijaz Ali Shah,Mr.Adnan Akbar Memon,Mr Gul Mastoi, Mr Nawal, Mr Tariq, Mr Mustaque Rajpar, Mr Saeed Rid, Mr Balach, Mr Munawar Rind, Mr Anwar Jogi, Mr Salam Dharejo, Mr Ali Nawaz Memon,Mr Niaz Nadeem Kandhar, Mr Ateeq Rehman Memon and other friends who have put an effort in making this networking a success deserve appreciation in whatever little or big contribution that could be made whether it is a valuable suggestion , advise, counseling, answering queries or being present at a get together. The concept and vision that we share for ES is making it larger than life through our combined efforts!
We all need to understand , that there is no commercial tail to this group, no revenue but lots of benefits & profits in the form of unity, knowledge and disseminating information.
In my opinion , those who made this get together a success the 43 people among us will now create “word of mouth” which would serve as 43 into 100=4300 people!!!! It is evident , look at the kind of correspondence an emails suggestions we already have! I would say this is quite commendable.
I have learnt in my past 8-9 years of professional and personal experience living in a different environment that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you’re a musician, a writer, an athlete or a businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you’ll win — if you don’t you wont.
Few suggestions in a nutshell are:
We develop these get to-gethers as a culture in order to boost this culture and share exposure and built a stronger network
This website and revolving emails itself is a database regulated and monitored which is why we don’t see spam or unnecessary interruptions
I would agree that there should be an agenda and of course the agenda always is the betterment and development of our people!!! So we keep it open for discussion unless there is something in particular that needs to be highlighted. We need to acknowledge a fact that we have members of different calibers and backgrounds some with certain beliefs and other with a different knowledgebase. That is precisely why we have started this culture to diversify and amalgamate this scattered force into one strong fist!
My dear friends keep up the effort and friends who corresponded and commented on the event thank you for the valuable input as it describes how it was and how we should chalk out our future activities.
