Anum Batool, a person who I have befriended through Twitter (@anumb3), has made a special place for a very simple reason. She has always come across a kind and caring soul. Being a doctor by profession, she is probably one who would make a patient feel better just by her demeanor.
On March 7, 2015, at 4:11 pm, she shared an event on twitter which left an impression, not only on me but quite a few others. The maid had brought sweets on the festive occasion of Aliya, her daughter’s graduation. From that date and time, the following turn of events is shared with utmost pride and happiness.
From the very beginning, the fact that a maid, mopping and sweeping floors and washing clothes, putting in such great effort in her daughter’s education, had caught a lot of attention. Many asked me who the person was who had contacted me for employment. I wanted the world to know about this kind soul. However, since the entire conversation took place in a private message, I thought it was better to seek permission before revealing his identity. The response I got increased my respect for the gentleman manifolds and for the organization as well.
While I request you all to remember Aliya in your prayers for a prosperous future, please also remember this kind person who chooses not to be known and for Anum Batool for making sure that a heroic deed was publically shared. Volumes can be written on Aliya’s mother.
Before ending this, just a small message for those who become critical of tweets, facebook posts, etc…. you never know, you just never know. Hence, keep updating, even if that is all you can do.
