  2. Nasir,We are embedded with Sewa through clairvoyance.

    The veteran on the maternal grand grandfather family, Jindani during the time of Late SMSAK.

    Late masi, Aunty Zeina for her underground time and Uncle Nuru for generosity took over the baton.

    Our generation, hold the baton, recollecting your wisdom, would make an author.

    Rafiq shares the baton with you. The Ismaili Edmonton Scouts was commenced by him.
