Ms. Orzala Ahshraf Nemat – More than a Leader

Without even thinking about how I am going to structure my blog, how I am going to write it, this time I just want to straight away come to the point that it was by far the most inspiring, the most hard hitting and the most thought provoking sessions I have attended in recent times. Not because of the seriousness and the criticality of the issue being discussed, but because of the story that lies behind an unseen and hard to experience/imagine life.

I am specifically talking about this session today as it just left me awestruck and demanding for more from Ms. Orzala Ahshraf Nemat. A lady who not only is a successful leader in bringing a change in women's lives in hard terrains of war struck Afghanistan but also is a responsible sister, a positive thinker, a visionary and an ardent believer in hope. The simplicity by which she presented her life story made me feel as if I was in Afghanistan for those 2 hours. More than the visuals in her presentation, it was her courage, the conviction in her voice and her confidence that just made me glued to her presence. I don't want to discuss her life story here as this page is far short to describe her achievements as a person. She according to me is an example of how people, who suffer from hardships and hardships, without being responsible for any act of crime or wrong doing, still think positive and chooses a path of hope instead of getting into extremes. The session was so gripping, that for a moment, even our camera man (who was shooting the meet), forgot that he needs to capture the meet and not listen to the speaker. I think I need to write more on Ms. Nemat which I will definitely do later in my further blogs.

Earlier in the day, Mr. Adam C Bird (Director, Mckinsey & Company), comprehensively discussed his life story and touched on the aspects of digital society. Apart from that another very interesting and inspiring session was that of Mr. Christian Wenk (Chief Mediical Officer, Schweizer Paraplegiker-Zentrum) who talked about how despite being physically disable, a person can achieve anything he or she wants. The core point in his session was not to discuss disabilities but to discuss "the abilities" of the people who are termed or viewed in a wrong way by people like us. In my view the title of the session should be "The abilities and the society" rather than "disabilities". In the last session Mr. Javier Garcia Martinez from Spain (Co-founder, Director of Rive Technology) enlightened us with the concept of Nano-technology and how it can be used effectively to address various environmental problems that we are facing today.

In the end I can say that the words and the story of Ms. Nemat are still fresh in my mind and will definitely act as a positive guiding force in various phases of my life. Here is one leader (in fact more than that); I definitely want to look forward to. Simply WOW!!
