I was the first in my village to complete 12 years of study. I always wanted to be a teacher and now I love my job. I have 45 pupils aged between five and seven and I want to help them have a good life. I still remember the day I learned the alphabet, it was a great moment. Now I get a lot of satisfaction when I see the children learning the lessons I teach them.

When I'm not working, I'm happiest at the big market. I love the bustle of so many people and I love shopping, especially for perfumes, scented talcum powder and beauty creams that both my wife and I use. I also bought posters at the market for our home. My favourites are of Benazir Bhutto because she was a daughter of the Sindhi people and the first Asian lady to become a prime minister.

I moved to this house after I married Shugna two years ago, but we had to rebuild completely after the floods last year. Our daughter's name is Kawila, which means poetry.
