It is said that leaders are not always born; sometimes people acquire the skills and talent eventually to become a leader. The great minds paved their instincts with their pens and as a curious mind finds itself amidst books, in his teens Hanan became an avid reader of books. Hanan Ali Abbasi possessed God gifted writing skills; he polished those skills by constant reading and writing. He wrote many thoughtful columns and articles. He penned down his first article in his early teens entitled “Mera Gaoun ENG- My village” in country’s most famous newspaper “Nawa-e-Waqt” when he was only 14 years old. He jotted down his views and feelings in his two widely read books “Zameeni Sitare” and “Cheen Se Bartania Tk”.
His love to read biographies led him to write “Zameeni Sitare”. It is a detailed analysis on 50 personalities who matter the world. This book was officially provided to the different schools of 2 largest districts of country by government. He was 19 years old when his book got published. The launching ceremony of his book was attended by dignities of country such as prominent anchor Javed Choudry, Saleem Safi and National Book Foundation MD Dr. Inam-ul haqq Javed etc.. He was being highly appreciated on such an inspiring piece of writing. Hanan Ali Abbasi is one of those rare individuals whose writing has changed the way people think; he is influential yet witty.
Hanan Ali Abbasi has been a pioneer in the field of Youth empowerment in Pakistan. The Institute of Policy studies Islamabad has published a brilliantly written travelogue CHEEN SE BARTANIA TAK, which is authored by a young change activist, author and social worker Hanan Ali Abbasi. Hanan Ali Abbasi whole heartedly shared his experience of tours to China and Britain in his book “Cheen Se Bartania Tk”.
