Dear all Friends thank you very much for all you did for my art. With heartiest regards MAK

P R O F I L E

Mission

To serve the global humanity through the skill I have acquired.

Biographical :

I am known as `Mak’, which is the abbreviation of my full name: Muhammad Arsahd Khan. My father’s name is Muhammad Azam Khan, and I was born on February 16, 1972 in Pontia (Topi, District Swabi) and grew up in Mohallah Swatian Serai (a labor colony of Pukhtoon Society) Topi, District Swabi, NWFP. I feel great honored that my town (Topi), is also the birthplace of Sir Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan (the founder of Government High School Topi, Islamia College Peshawar and the first Chief Minister of N.W.F.P). Topi is situated under the shade of Mahaban Peak, on the left bank of Abasen/Indus River. The river, which flows in the middle of Takhtbai and Taxila, is the remnant of the land called a symbol of Gandhara and Indus Civilization. From the might of Alexander the Great and Ashoke, to the construction of one of world’s largest dams and Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Science and Technology, Topi is a place of high esteem.

Growing up close to nature, a peasant with a rich historic background in serene surroundings, enabled me to develop intellectual sensitivity, a quality that motivated me to aims and aspirations achieved through hard work; propelling me to greater heights of achievement.

Academic:

My academic career starts from Government Primary School Shaheedan Topi, and then Government High School Topi, from where I obtained my secondary school certificate. After qualifying intermediate examination my cousin Khalid Zaman took me to Karachi University in 1993. Here I studied Sociology as a major subject with great interest, along with Mass Communication as a subsidiary subject, and Community Development and Urban Sociology as specialized subjects in Bachelor of Arts (Honors) and in 1997, I earned a Master of Arts.

Research/

Thesis:

I compiled the research thesis work under the title of “Study Of The Factors Effecting Maternal And Infant Health In Low Income Groups of Urban” to qualify with a masters degree. My universe for study was Muzzafar Abad Colony, Landhi Industrial Area, Karachi.

I am grateful to my Alma mater for the academic eligibility and for the multicultural exposure that it gave me.

Professional

Exposure

Soon after passing out from Karachi University I joined TCS (Private) Limited as Admin Officer on March 19, 1997. From June 1, 1999 I have been promoted as Assistant Manager Administration then Manager Administration from July 1, 2003.

I whole-heartedly enjoy working in our country’s leading international courier company, and looking after the administration of more than 350 offices across the network, which has broadened my understanding and knowledge in practical terms.

Artistic Profile

Social Profile

Children’s

Personality Development

Peace

I had been drawn to art right from my childhood for unknown, reasons and with extraordinary abilities. I am highly grateful to Khalid Zaman who brought me to Karachi. Availing its metropolitan opportunities, I started my artistic journey as an Actor, Student of Music at the PACC, and Student Politician at Karachi University. Along with my academic career, I was a writer of the Theosophical Society Karachi, but nothing satisfied my artistic yearnings.

Soon after passing out from Karachi University, and joining TCS I attained the rare opportunity to become the favorite student of the world famous, Pride of Performance award winner painter and Ex-Cultural Attaché Bashir Mirza popularly known as BM. BM started teaching me drawing and painting from September 1997 till his death on January 5, 2000. During this period he transferred his treasured knowledge of art and socialization. I have also taken some classes from Madam Nayyer Jameel and artist Naheed Raza.

Being an artist I am always eager to serve this faculty and the enclosed list of achievements is the testimony to my devotion.

By utilizing the academic background of Sociology, management experience and artistic skills I have working on the personality development of children through extra curricular activities in schools of the Landhi Industrial Area, Karachi.

I have been working for spreading peace not only in Pakistan but indeed also in world and actively participating its related activities.

Communication

Pukhto/Pushto

Hindco

Urdu

Punjabi

English

I am a social, multi-cultured person therefore I can speak various languages which are:

Growing up with rich Pukhtoon bonds, and having the Pukhto as paternal language, I speak, read and write perfectly. I can also speak Pushto (spoken in Quetta) efficiently.

My mother belongs to one of the villages, which swept by floods caused due to the construction of Tarbela Dame, where Hindco was the major language therefore I can also speak, read and write efficiently.

I speak, write and read Urdu efficiently.

Having a wide circle of Punjabi friends, I got the opportunity to learn Punjabi with efficient accent, reading and writing skill.

During the university education, in order to enhance my communication skill in English, I qualified E.L.P (English Language Program) from PACC (Pak-American Cultural Center) Karachi, from 1992 till 1994.
