Pakistan's capital Islamabad is ranked as the most beautiful capital city in the region. The picture above show the Prime Minister's Secretariat decorated with lights (as were many buildings in Islamabad) because of a religious holiday; Eid Milad-un-Nabi, Prophet Muhammad's birthday.
Last week was monumental. Firstly, fellow MVP, Country Leader INETA Pakistan, and good friend Saqib Ilyas got married. I couldn't attend because I was in Islamabad. Anyway, best wishes for him and his wife. My reason for visiting Islamabad was to conduct events at 4 universities; Mohammad Ali Jinnah University (MAJU), FAST, Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU), and COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT); all in a span of 1 week. This time around, I was fortunate to be presenting with some very talented and young individuals from Islamabad. Tenoon Raza and Salma Nasir from Microsoft Islamabad office presented at the first 2 presentations each, and the latest edition to the Pakistani MVP Community, Ahmed Salam, presented at the remaining two.
Islamabad always charges me up. I look forward to going back soon.
