To become successful & inspire people is hard work and requires commitment & constant efforts. Staying positive & motivated every day is not easy, but the one who makes it can also bring significant changes in one's life. And when you wish to inspire people in an entirely different manner and have to stay positive & motivated in a hostile environment, your goal becomes a challenge. Mr. Karam Alhamad, an Entrepreneur, researcher, published writer, and whatnot, has a dream in his eyes which is not less than a challenge.
Bringing change in society is not less than a revolution, and when the efforts to bring change are selfless, then it becomes charity. To give money in charity is good, but to be a pure & charitable soul is far greater; Mr. Karam is one such soul.
