Dance to the tunes of Nobel Malala!

If I win Nobel Peace Prize, it would be a great opportunity for me, but if I don't get it, it's not important because my goal is not to get Nobel Peace Prize, my goal is to get peace and my goal is to see the education of every child.’
Malala Yousafzai.

Pakistan is the land of contradictions. It is the country in political intensive care. The faces , the terrains  , the marshes  are wounded  and scarred  by  guns  and unending  terrorism  ,international and political  rifts. 2014  the year of change  , a ray  of hope  bringing  a new wave  of storytelling , a sudden twist in  the  Pakistan political , international  image brought  through  by  a Damsel  of Peace, Malala Yousafzai. She received a prestigious accolade , the Nobel Peace Prize.

Malala is an advocate of Peace par excellence, judging from her merciless attack by the Taliban, her resistance to suffering. Her defiance in fight for peace and justice.

It is heartening   that today Malala dances to the tunes of the Nobel.

Malala Yousafzai was born in Mingora, Pakistan, located in the country's Swat Valley. The winner was born on 12th of July 1997. Her hometown was once a popular tourist spot, before  the emergence of the Taliban  terrorists.

Malala got initiated into activism in the early years of her school days . This was the time when the Taliban were attacking young girls in schools, disrupting their educational rights. She bravely gave a speech in September 2008 titled   , "How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?"
At a tender age  , she blogged  for BBC and  she never cease  to amaze  this  scribe and others, the Young   winner  was a nominee of International Children  Peace Prize in 2011 and wore another amazing  girdle in the same Pakistan National Youth Peace Prize.

At the tender age of 14 , the   heroine was already a threat and target of the Taliban. The Taliban terrorist tracked her and shot her instantly in   the left side of the head her on the 12th of October 2012. Such a grave attack   of the innocent girlchild who needs life and grow to lead and save the save the world and her country- barbarism.

After the grievous attack, Malala remained determined she continued advocating for her rights and other girls rights. She gave  heart  rending   speeches  on International platforms and continue  to pocket  prestigious  awards with  such  baffling  clout ,confidence and maturity.

Malala gave a  powerful  speech   at the United Nations  in 2013 and she wrote  her own  autobiography  irrespective of her young age, the autobiography is titled I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban,. In that same year the European Parliament awarded her with Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought

In October 2014, Yousafzai received the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Indian children's rights activist Kailash Satyarthi. At age 17, she became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. In congratulating Yousafzai, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said: “She is (the) pride of Pakistan, she has made her countrymen proud. Her achievement is unparalleled and unequalled. Girls and boys of the world should take lead from her struggle and commitment." U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described her as "a brave and gentle advocate of peace who through the simple act of going to school became a global teacher.”
As the October golden sun rays    filtered through the  world  social terrains and political  landscapes  with its golden smile , it  carried  the golden news of  the Damsel of Peace dancing  to the tunes of Nobel.

Dance Malala Dance!
