Briefly about me
My name is Hafeezur Rahman Malik but call me Hafeez. In fact, everyone is called here by the first name even if just introduced. This reflects friendly attitude. Those with gray hair or look alike, would be addressed an Uncle or Auntie. Once again, it shows love and affection for those who deserve it. More about me is given in my Bio
My profession is teaching. Before, I was with a bank as Development Banking Specialist. I left the bank job when an attractive golden handshake was offered to me. Now I am whiling away my time in teaching and traveling. I teach university classes subject like Project Evaluation and Project Management. Since I have been through actual appraisal and implementation of many industrial plants, I know the subject fully well.
My family consists of one wife and three children. I have written one wife to remove misconception that most Muslims have four wives. Maybe in oil-rich country Saudi Arabia but certainly not in my country. Not that no body wants it but hardly anyone can afford it.
My hobbies are traveling, writing TRAVEL TALES, collecting JOKES but only short and sweet. In addition I write CASE STUDIES for my students, which help them understand the subject I teach. Further, I love to have PENPALS all over the world.
My city is Karachi. This is a big city with 11 million people. Being big, it has its problems like load-shedding or water shortage. At the same time, it has its charm. This is a business center, a good place for learning and to enjoy life. The city offers a variety of entertainment like cultural shows, exhibitions, games, cinemas and what not.
My country is Pakistan. It has an area of 804,000 km, about the size of Ohio and Texas combined. Its population is 120 million. Though mostly agrarian, it has well-developed industries in the field of cotton, sugar, cement and light engineering. Running through the country are five mighty rivers. Eventually, they all join and enter the sea forming a gigantic delta. The upper reaches of these rivers are in Kashmir, which is an apple of discord between India and Pakistan.
My Pursuit is to become travel writer.
So far I have a limited success. A few web-sites have published some of my stories:
