Malala Day today

                                                               Malala Yusafzai

Malala needs no introduction. Her face speaks it all.
Barely 15, she is the strength of millions of girls across the globe today.
She was shot in the head and neck on 9 October by Taliban gunmen, just because she goes to school and belongs to a place in Pakistan where Taliban has at times banned girls from going to school. Malala came to limelight in early 2009 with her blog for BBC explaining her life under the Taliban rule, and her insatiable thirst to help thousands of girls who were devoid of education in that area. Later a documentary was filmed on her life and the rest is History.

World is celebrating 'Malala Day' today.
Also there are calls for Malala Yusafzai, an icon of girl education today, to be awarded the Noble Peace Prize.

Lets pray for her to get well soon. And wish many more Malalas to emerge, work for girls education and womens rights. Lets join hands together for the noble cause.
