The decision to pursue higher education is one of the most important steps young individuals can take towards laying solid foundations of a successful professional career. The decision should be an extremely measured one, not only because your future and the success of it depends on it, but also because it takes a heavy financial toll on your fortunes or that of your family’s.
ith the departure of Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad for the hereafter, I lost a mentor, a guide and a trail blazer who exemplified what does it mean to be an inspirational leader. Inna lillah e wa inna ilaihi rajioon. A loss that seems more acute because I could have learned much more from him than what I did. Here I relate my observations about his achievements as a great collaborative leader, an inspiration for all those who met him, and my learning from him.
Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad’s sudden and unexpected passing away in a tragic car crash has left thousands, including me, at a loss for words. Thousands who had known him professionally and personally; thousands who he had instructed; thousands of others who have grown into who they are today under his guidance and patronage, and thousands who merely remember him for once speaking a few words of kindness in an angelic demeanour.
