Adeel Zaidi is a fresh reflection of traditional values in the modern time.
He has portrayed the sensitivity of human observations with a mosaic of
passions but carefully maintained his objectivity.
Adeel Knows the art of reducing complex issues to a very simple and easy to understand phenomenon that helps the reader to discover the refracting realties lie behind the opaque web of daily life.
He neither hesitates speak his mind nor has ever been fearful addressing the bold issues. Adeel sees future through his vision of a blending cultural experience of east and west. He carefully distinguishes the dichotomy of conservative and progressive views of two cultures and leave sample room for the reader to develop his own picture.
If I had to sum up in one word what I felt after reading my father's
book, I would have to say, proud. As an outside looking at this
book, one could only wish to write with such conviction and
passion. " Chalte Chalte" is exactly as the title indicates, a work that
was done on the go. His job required him to travel quite often and
during his travels he saw many different parts of the world.The journeys
he took and people that he met on the way inspired much of what he
has written. Along with his father stands for; courage, modesty and
devotion. His modesty has kept him grounded and in order to instill
those same qualities in his children, he accompanied my brother and
I on trip to the many of the same places he visited. He did not want us
to only to read of these places but to actually see how people lived.
In turn, I feel that I have been humbled and am also more grateful to be
in the position that I am in now. Aside from teaching me about life, he
has also accomplished something that I said that I would never do; I am
now writing poetry. After reading his work one can only be inspired to
do the same. I have just recently begun to write but if I can write at least
half as well as my father, I will consider myself lucky. He is a man of
honor and I have and will always continue to look to him for guidance
and strength. I am very proud of all that he has accomplished and I wish
for him health and happiness.
Ek baiti ki dua apnay Abbu ke liye......I Love you Abbu.
