A new home for Sufi Comics – www.SufiComics.com

Sufi Comics started as an experiment 3 years ago on our blog, and Alhamdulliah a lot has happened during the last 3 years:

* Published a book: 40 Sufi Comics
* Comics are being translated in 4 languages… more languages coming soon
* Is used in Madrasahs around the world (including Canada, Australia, US, Africa, Pakistan, Dubai)
* Participation at Comic-Con Mumbai
* Working on Volume 2 of Sufi Comics
* Very shortly we’re releasing an app for the iPhone & iPad

With all the activity surrounding this project we felt it deserves a new home on the internet. Sufi Comic’s new official website is www.SufiComics.com ! Please subscribe to the RSS feed & Mailing List to receive the latest comics!

Thank you for all for your support and encouragement! :-)

Please Support Wikipedia


There are three things that I can’t imagine life without.
- Chocolate
- Coffee Breaks
- and Wikipedia.

Almost everyday I visit wikipedia to learn about some Person, Event, A piece of history, a bit of science…gosh the list goes on. When reading news online they have references to events that I have no idea about. But just with a flick of a wrist, wikipedia is open and I know exactly what they are talking about.

Wikipedia is an amazing project setup by an amazing person. Jimmy Wales is determined to keep it Advertising free. What spirit!

Read an excerpt from his passionate appeal:

Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind. It is a place we can all go to think, to learn, to share our knowledge with others.

When I founded Wikipedia, I could have made it into a for-profit company with advertising banners, but I decided to do something different.

We donate regularly to wikipedia. I appeal you to do so as well. Even if it is just Rs.100. per month. You can make your donation by clicking here.

 

Arif and Ali podcast, now available

201111301040.jpg

As if you haven’t had enough of us already, we’re now also offering the Arif and Ali Podcast. These podcasts are not talks given by us, but these are talks that we ourselves are looking forward to listen.

The Problem:

There so much to learn from the web specially from lectures, seminar etc. but don’t get chance to listen when we first see it. And when we do get the time (say when going back home from work) when don’t have access to those same lectures.

The Solution:

So now, whenever we come across a speech, lecture, conference that catches our fancy, we add it to the Arif and Ali Podcast. That way when we get back into our cars on our way home, we first dab into the Arif and Ali podcast and listen to the next interesting lecture from there. It’s been working really well for us so far. We have been collecting lectures in here for a while now so it has a really good collection of talks.

You can subscribe to the podcast via the RSS Feed here. If you have an ipod but never subscribed to a podcast before, you can learn how by reading this or better yet by watching this.

Will Miss you Steve.

I still remember my awe at my first ipod. It changed my life. I was never one for much music. However, the number of lectures, podcasts, speeches I began to listen to thanks to the ipod, multiplied several times over. I was benefitting so much from it, that eventually each and everyone of my family members (my brother, my mom, dad, wife) began to own one (sometimes two or more). That has been the story with each and every Apple product that I have owned. After I got my Macbook, I began blogging, podcasting more than before. With the ipad I have been reading more than before.They have helped me become more me. The “i” before each Apple product is not misplaced. It does indeed help each reach into or express one’s truly self.

What a briliant individual to design tools that work seemlessly well across ages, generations and cultures. Wait a go Steve. Will miss you dearly.

I have been watching Steve Jobs videos over the past two days. Here are a few of my favourite short ones:

Focussing is about saying NO.
Brilliant Video. Just 3 mins long

If you enjoyed that there’s another 5 minute bit from the same gathering that’s worth watching here.

Steve Jobs Tells us a Secret
That was interesting, never knew that’s the way it happened.
