Thirteen valuable insights, primarily by intellectuals in Pakistan are being put together as a resource for analysts and historians. The perspectives vary but the context is Pakistan, with an emphasis on the conception itself, its culture and its education.

These essays were originally delivered in Lahore, Pakistan from 1990 to 2005 as C.A. Qadir Memorial Lectures. Professor Dr. C.A.

And so he lived philosophy in word and in deed.
