About The Author

avatar

I am a 33 years old living and working in Dublin, Ireland. I have a degree in hotel management but that couldn’t make me work in a hotel as that did not work out well for me. I work as a shift supervisor in a Starbucks café but I am also an entrepreneur, which for me is a lot more exciting than working in a coffee shop. This blog is also a part of my excitement. Part of my entrepreneurship. I love reading books, mostly on politics. I used to write poetry but have stopped it since last couple of years. I love photography and I do know quite a bit about it but haven’t been practicing that either but I am sure I will start it some day. Writing is one of the most difficult things I find to do but once I start, I won’t stop. I start loving it more and more with every word I write. Making this blog and writing is a small effort I believe I can do to make things right, things which have been going very wrong in other famous blogs out there in Pakistan. I am writing to do something against obscenity and vulgarity going on different blogs. I aim to write constructive and something people can learn from. Be it a piece of news or an article. It has to be worth reading and something people can learn from. That’s the aim.
