I Am Malala: Inspire the change

I Am Malala

I come from a country which was created at midnight. When I almost died, it was just after midday.One year ago, I left my home for school and never returned”.

The book sets off with the prologue titled ‘The day my world changed’ of which the first sentence is this .

  • It is a unique autobiography of a 14 year old Pakistani girl, Malala Yousufzai who scared death to death while fighting for her right to education that was denied to hundreds of girls like her in Swat Valley by Taliban. She describes the story of her family since her birth.Any reader is going to be fascinated by the wisdom and realisation she holds at this age.
  • She is named after Malala of Maiwand, the greatest heroine in the history of Afghanistan. Her father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, the only man of his kind is stored with courage to the brim without which ‘Malala’ would not have been possible. She grew up hearing the lullaby that her father used to sing:

O Malalai of Maiwand, Rise once more to make pashtuns understand the song of honour, Your poetic words turn worlds around, I beg you, rise again.

Further,she explains Pakistan in its real sense.
