My First Blog...

I am Afzaal Ahmed, working as Lecturer in NED University of Engineering and Technology. I did my BE in Urban Engineering from NED University in 2007. I was selected to pursue MS in Civil Engineering from USA under USAID Project. These days I am working on my PhD proposal on ITS-based Traffic Management System.

Apart from these academic activities, I love to get to know and read about national politics, affairs in Pakistan, international politics, and declining condition of Muslims around the world.
I love my homeland, but the political, economical, and society situation in Pakistan really disappoints me. I am not a supporter of only highlighting positives, overlooking real problems, and keep dreaming by reading the past glories. Glories in the past are not assurance of a bright future. We need to learn from the mistake committed in past and not to repeat them in the future. I will be InshaAllah writing about the prevailing problems in our society and suggesting potential solutions. I am a firm believer that everyone keeps on learning by discussing ideas and that I might be wrong sometimes in presenting facts and figures and your comments and suggestions would help me to learn more. I will request all my friends to comment on my future blogs. Thanks for your time to read this.

Best Regards,
Afzaal Ahmed.
