that’s me photographed by my 5 year old with an iPhone
there’s 5 kinds of wealth a person has

my grandfather’s father, used to say—“Son, ask for faith, health and finances”
his name is Ismaeel and he went in the Second Great War on behalf of the british colonial empire to the Japanese front
We come from the Gondal tribe—an ancient agrarian tribe on the NorthWestern frontier of Punjab proper.
Most of our population lives in the Gondal-Bar region, the section of the earth between River Jehlum and River Chenab at the centre is the city of Mandi Bahauddin
other tribes settled in the Bar are the Ranjha, the Warraich, the Tarar and the Gujjar tribes
My Great Grandfather’s big brother was named Sukha
Sukha was a man with the heart of a King
Whenever Sukha will buy new land, he will distribute it evenly to his three brothers—to this day our ancestral home is named after him.
1 of the recurring themes of Gondal tribe is we make excellent executives
Gondal tribe is overrepresented in the the the military, the police and the judiciary

this means for survival we have to do only the important things and let some fires burn and triage the right fires to put out
which means things like the 80/20 principle is a part of our upbringing
