Three Cups Of Tea

Read a real good book after ages, Three cups of tea. It’s just amazing how much of a mist clearer this book is. It’s about one man’s effort in educating the children of Pakistan and Afganistan despite all odds. Makes me feel there is so little we contribute to our own children. He nails the problem when he says that the war on terror cannot be fought with bombs but books. The other bit which he states and is really close to my heart is bit about educating girls and how essential it is to the progress of a community. What astounded me was his ability to get girls to go to school even in the most conservative areas of Pakistan and Afganistan.
It’s a must read!
