Ibrahim emerges as symbol of pride for nation.

ISLAMABAD, February 21, 2011 (Balochistan Times): It is beyond ones imagination that an average student like Ibrahim Shahid will emerge as symbol of pride for the nation through gaining such remarkable success in this age that his teachers and fellows will feel pride of having interaction with him.

Home environment plays greater role in the success of any student and I am fortunate to have such parents who provided me a relaxed atmosphere to concentrate fully on my studies, he added. It was not quantity of hours but quality of time which I spent for studies during my exams with entire focus on every subject, he said. Ibrahim expressed dissatisfaction over prevailing discriminatory education system in the country and said that there must be unified curricula and equal access to educational opportunities for every child. Students must not rely on guides, key books and guess papers as well as rote learning for preparation of exams and thoroughly comprehend the concepts as it could better develop analytical approach in them, Ibrahim said. Identifying talent or potential of the students at their teenage can help adopt career oriented studies and productive fields in a long run. Parents and teachers must invoke the talents in students and not impose their own ideas, he said. Students must have confidence on their inner abilities and should work for making a better Pakistan, he said. Ibrahim is fond of playing football and table tennis, playing guitar and taking part in debate contests. He is greatly inspired from Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan of Pakistan and Dwight D.
