In an interview with Najeeb Ahmad, he told us that he has been obliged to open an organisation for the sake of development and service of mankind. He, along with Mr. Mohsin Khan is planning to conduct the International Day of Peace in Srinagar for the upcoming years, an event that was previously conducted by Kashmir Peace Network.

 Najeeb has witnessed a lot of development in volunteerism and spirit of working for others, he adds “I have never witnessed such an enthusiasm before, I am working at Ehsaas International and during the first and 2nd wave of Covid-19, we had no stable sleep routines, we worked without checking the time on the clock and it didn’t matter if we skipped our regular meals, we were literally producing thousands of PPEs daily. 

During the first wave, nobody would even dare to open their window if there was an ambulance passing by. We literally didn’t care and were visiting quarantine centers and hospitals on a regular basis. We had isolated ourselves from our family and we worked at least 70 hours a week.”

Being a citizen of Kashmir, Najeeb is very passionate about arts and crafts, he has had an inclination towards Kashmiri literature ever since he was in 2nd grade. He also has plans to promote Kashmiri language and literature among the youth, for which he told us about his plans of conducting events regarding promotion of Kashmiri language, he adds “It feels like we have abandoned our own mother tongue, we were supposed to use and nurture it and use it on a regular basis, but some strange notions prevent us from doing so, feeling embarrassed to speak Kashmiri is one of them, If we look at other developed nations like Japan and China, we can see how they have preserved their language and have made it an integral part of their culture. 

We should try as much as we can to avoid abandoning our own culture and language for the sake of looking modern or western”

Najeeb has been an asset to the society and to his dear ones, we hope he continues to do things that promote the well-being of the society.
