The following Profile write-up is written by my fiancee Saniya. I am blessed to have such a wonderful person in my life.
I do feel its a bit bias. But then again, that is one of the blessings from Allah to have a person who is meant to be with you for ever in all conditions of life. . (Alhumdulliah)
I have known Khizar Rashid in a personal capacity for considerably longer & found him to be someone who can always be counted on to demonstrate impeccable integrity, kindheartedness & humbleness.
He is a very happy-go- lucky person with an extremely positive attitude towards whatever life has to offer him. He has an excellent rapport with people of all ages. His excellent communication skills allow him to connect with all kinds of people and inspire them to put forth their best effort therefore he possesses great leadership skills!
Khizar, being a very logical minded person is fast at identifying what the actual issue is and what matters; this has always led him to be a quick decision maker & a problem solver. He has a strong mental capacity & is always eager to learn new concepts and then applying them in his practical life.
He is so different that makes him the one star to shine in a sky with a million that go unnoticed. He is one man who carries his heart in his eyes that every time he talks about something he is passionate about, his eyes light up, alive, dancing & burning as if he sees a world that no one has ever seen.
In a professional capacity, I would say that Khizar is a true business professional. I have found him to be very disciplined, technically strong, and intelligent, with strong business partnering and problem solving capabilities that he uses to the best of his abilities. I have found him to be very efficient, detail-oriented, and extremely competent. He is very self driven & self motivated, and has a clear sense of personal purpose underscoring everything he does, this makes him very focused.
Whatever ethical plane he holds himself to in life; he always raises the bar of responsibility even higher!
All in all, his experiences (personal & professional) have shaped him to be a highly confident & motivated individual with exceptional mental strength.

Life is so full of colors! Its a mess, until you dont take it one at a time. It just takes up your whole life thinking when and where to start, and the moment you take the step you have problems right in front of you and you feel; is this where you really want to go towards? Its a really big question, which comes up in your mind and then again you fall back into the same old circle: where to start thinking. Its a real pisser I know. I am being to cinicle about it, but that is how life goes about bashing up things, that you never had in mind were coming at you. I am writing all this just to take out my frustration and get back to being a normal citizen like every body else. Just kidding, I am trying to find a way to get a grip on my self in which I can actually look back from the future and say, that is the right decision I made in life.
Decisions are a really important part of your life. If you are not allowed to make decisions then you need to do some thinking about it. You know why? Because its your life and no one really gives a rats ass to what you become in your future.
Wow! That was all I had in mind to churn out for now.. 🙂

It was just amazing to spend the Eid days for the first time not sitting home and meeting people whom you have never met for the whole year. Golf was the main focus this time! In full relaxed mode I played golf for 3 days with great people. The weather was amazing, the venue was also one of the best and the company in which I got the chance to play was also phenomenal.
Islamabad Golf Club has 18 holes + I heard that they are making 9 more. With beautiful long fairways and fairly tough roughs, I think one can not get a better challenged course living in Pakistan. I being an 18 handicap, found it pretty good. 🙂
Here are some pictures that I took:

Wow what a nice way of starting a Sunday morning. I picked up my backpack and headed towards DelaWala. It was around 6:00 am as the sun was coming out. I was with 2 friends from our offroadpakistan.com group (Khalid Omar & Mahera Omar). At DelaWala a group know as Critical Mass was gathering to bike all the way to Quaid e Azam Mazar and back. There were approximately 20 bikers including us 3. The ride was approximately 18 km bike ride.
Critical Mass is a cycling movement out there on the streets of Karachi and also around the world. The group sets out at a set location and time, to pedal through set routes. They join together to reclaim public spaces and view the city through new angles. All bikes and bikers are free to join and play an essential part in promoting the nation and saving its environment! 🙂
The rout that we took was:
- 3 Talwar
- Martiot Hotel
- Zainab Market
- Mobile Market
- Capri Cinima
- Quaid e Azam Mazar
- Norani Kabab house
- Shera-e-Faisal Main Road
- FTC building
- then off to home DHA 🙂
The whole ride and experience was great. I think it could be organized better, as for people who are newcomers or those who are not in practice with cycling, are not able to keep up to speeds at which most cyclist were going at. This group is made for a cause, and it should roll as a group in the streets of Karachi, so that people are able to see and recognize that this group is out not for cycling or excersizing, but out for a cause….I think that the organizers should not let any one go ahead of them, so that to keep the group in a formation. 🙂

Great leaders use to be followers once! Great leaders are nurtured by the society they are living in. What differs leaders from followers is their thinking! Their attitude which comes up from their beliefs. And I think beliefs are made by our parents or teachers or friends or any other person we meet during are life time. While we are growing are brains are very much like a soft dry sponge. In the early stages of life we tend to belief in each and every thing we hear or do. With time we realize that which one of our beliefs are wrong and which were right. Now here comes the part which I think is the most interesting one.
You need to be like a lion. Lion Beliefs that all the other animals are his food. Thats why he is the leader of the Animal Kingdom! The lion is not the smartest, nor the largest and not even the heaviest of all the animals in the animal Kingdom. His belief that all other animals are my lunch shapes his attitude. And his attitude then shapes his actions. 🙂
Every Animal in the jungle respects the Lion. The Lion is given respect due to his Attitude. And what shapes his Attitude is his belief.
I think that once we start to check our beliefs and change those beliefs which stop us from moving forward in life, we will be able to become great leaders! Now a days most of the Pakistani people are trying to find a leader, I think they should stop and look at them selfs for a change. I think if we start to belief that we can be leaders then only can Pakistan come back on its own feet.
“An army of Sheep led by a Lion will always defeat an army of Lions led by a Sheep!” (Dr. Myles Munroe)

19-12-10 we got together early in the morning to go for Snorkeling at Churna Island. We were in total 10 friends, some from Iqra Uni, and others from different Universities in Karachi. Our Group is called the Divers Reef. We love to snorkel and explore the beautiful coastal line that Pakistan has. Due to lack in distribution of good knowledge about our country these heavenly places get in the back of the line. And no attention is hence given to them. People go abroad to have relaxation time, leaving all these beautiful places behind. I think that as we should keep on going to these places and then share our experiences on the web with everyone, there might be a chance for these place to flourish as an International Tourist attraction one day.
