A person who does very good things in his life and makes day-to-day things easier for others might be considered an angel.
Fayaz Amar Buriro is such an angelic man and well known language engineer.
People should be known by skills not with the degrees. Nowadays, many people get degrees but these degrees are not of any worth if they don’t deliver to their people. We can see many examples in our country. There are numerous doctors who do not know which medicine should be used for fever but they have degrees so societycall them doctors and appreciate them as well. However, on the other hand there are various folk Hakeems who have not degrees but they can understand our ailments and can guide us better than those who are degree holders said Amar Fayaz in his talk while he was guest speaker in Hyderabad Literature Festival.

Amar's Urdu Article blogs were published on website where majority of his blogs became the most controversially because of the nature of Amar's as hammer on the rock today he is webmaster of more than 50 multilingual websites. He said I have endeavored to bring latest technology to the service of major Pakistani languages such as Urdu and Sindhi.

No doubt that quiet people have the loudest mind.
