For Malala & right to education

Malala Yousafzai [wiki] is a 15-year-old education and women’s rights activist from the town of Mingora in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. She was shot (and survived) in an assassination attempt by Taliban on October 9, 2012.

November 10 has been designated as Malala Day by The Office of the UN Special Envoy for Global Education [] aimed to deliver education for every child around the world.

There’s lots of stuff going in my mind but I’m short of words… it’s never an easy thing to tackle issues like human-rights, poverty, overpopulation, terrorism, child-labour etc. Perhaps education is the answer… it’s a long and difficult journey regardless.

Malala’s courage and bravery deserves my utmost admiration. I’m feeling a bit ashamed to be frank, and I’m pledging myself to do more to make the world a better place.
