TAC  school System –Keep Passing on the lantern!

When, I passed by the TAC school in Johar Town. I was not only impressed but amazed by the ambiance the manicured lawns, the meticulously clean classrooms, the discipline in the students, and their involvement in extracurricular activities. It gave me a feeling of quite a high brand in expensive league like LGS and Beacohouse brands.

Then I got a chance to meet the soul behind the body, General (Retired) Maqbool, the founder of the TAC School concept.

The visionary leader is trying to make a difference in his own special and humble way and not even making a sound out of it. The fee structure is Rs. 5/- per month. Yes you read it right it is just five rupees for the whole month.

Story of Anarkali

Is it a Fact or Fiction?

Who was she …

The interesting thing about history is that it can hardly be hundred percent true. Even if someone has witnessed it with his or her own eyes, it will just be the interpretation of that individual.

The story of Anarkali exists somewhere between fact & fiction. This is because of the reason that in Mughul era, there were some many palace intrigues,  complicated relationships, schemes amongst the large  extended families of  nobles and ordinary service people. That is why many secrets were just got buried in the hearts and minds and the final truth could sometimes never be revealed. It is only an effort of picking up some disconnected pieces and trying to re-connect the dots to make up a story from underneath. So take this with an open mind and you may contemplate and draw your own conclusions if you may wish.

Zero Worries With an iPad
