A piece of advice by the Founder

One thing that Mr. Shiraz Khan would advise everyone out there is that if you dream of creating a name for yourself in your respective field, you will have to give up procrastination and lying idle. Procrastination is your worst enemy if you wish to do something significant in your life. Step out of your comfort zone, hustle, and be persistent. You have got this one life, don’t waste it by sitting idle and doing nothing.  Step out and get known for creating a difference!
