Life, is full of surprises. There hasn’t been a day that I haven’t learned something new about life. Life, is amazing, its depressing at times, its good news and bad news at other times, its tough and easy, its uphill and downhill, its dark and bright, its mysterious yet so obvious, sometimes cheating, dishonest, adulterous, dirty, deceitful and what not, yet its simple and straight at other times. Whatever the case maybe there’s no escaping it. Its there to be lived. One can either choose to live it or let life choose the way.
Muhammad Suleman is one man who chose to live it the way he wanted to. The man doesn’t have hands, in fact he has small protrusions from elbow down which he very skilfully uses to make paans at his small road side khokha. And the man doesn’t have feet, in fact he has small protrusions from knee down which he uses to propel himself, God knows how for I haven’t seen him walking. This man is an epic example of bravery, a man of indomitable spirit, one who refuses to back down in the face of odds, one who has the gall to face anything that comes his way. To me he’s the perfect example of a human being. He is one who gives hope, lessons and promise of life to the likes of me who consider themselves unlucky in this mortal world. Muhammad Suleman is a man who refuses to throw the towel, he’s a teacher a fighter a chivalrous soul who gave this scribe one big lesson that day I stopped by to get a paan for my family. He told me not through his words but through his actions and conduct to be thankful to HIM and to trust HIM, have faith in HIM. Muhammad Suleman is a rare breed the likes of which I haven’t seen much in the 45 long years of my not unlucky life. What more is there to say or write about him, just watch the video and you’ll realize what I am talking about. Cheers!
Oh by the way he’s located in Chaklala Scheme 3 Rawalpindi and is married 🙂
