PERSONALITY<br />Kabir is a very important figure in Indian history. He is unusual in that he is spiritually significant to Hindus, Sikhs, and Muslims alike. Kabir openly criticized all sects and gave a new direction to the Indian philosophy.

ZULIFKAR ALI BHUTO<br /><ul><li>Born:5-Jan-1928Birthplace: Larkana, PakistanDied:4-Apr-1979Location of death:Rawalpindi, PakistanCause of death:ExecutionRemains: Buried, Garhi Khuda Baksh, Larkana, Pakistan</li></li></ul><li>Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (1928-1979), Pakistan's president and then prime minister, mobilized his country's first mass-based political party around a socialist ideology and highly independent foreign policy<br />
Pakistan had been under military rule by a government headed by Ayub Khan since 1958. Bhutto, who served as minister of foreign affairs until asked to resign in 1966, realized that the toleration of the people for repressive government was diminishing. He felt that this adverse situation presented an ideal opportunity for him to assume leadership of Pakistan. In December 1967 Bhutto formed his own political party, the Pakistan People's Party, whose manifesto promised to alleviate the lot of the urban and rural workers and advocated an equitable distribution of wealth. His program not only appealed to the lower income groups but was supported by the urban intelligentsia which was seeking an end to the military regime and felt that Bhutto offered a new and dynamic plan and a necessary alternative to traditional religious parties<br />
Bhutto's policies, aimed at reducing the power of such traditional economic forces as major businessmen and feudal landlords, were well intentioned but lacked sufficient consideration of economic realities.<br /> His government's economic policies were implemented hastily by bureaucrats who did not have the requisite management skills and background. Consequently, the economy became chaotic and left most sections of society disaffected with the policies.<br />
“I have no hesitation in saving that my most passionate love affair, my most thrilling romance has been with the people.<br /> There is an indissoluble marriage between politics and the people. That is why ‘Man is a political animal’ and the state a political theatre.”<br />
He was deposed in a bloodless coup by Gen. Zia ul-Haq on July 5, 1977. Several charges were brought against him, including the murder while in power of a political opponent's father. He was sentenced to death and was hanged on April 4, 1979, despite appeals for clemency by world leaders and international organizations.<br />
<ul><li>The sentence was carried out today in 1979. At the last moment, Bhutto tried to write his will but, finding the burden of historic last words too heavy, burned the result. </li></li></ul><li>Christopher Paul Gardner <br /><ul><li>Christopher Paul Gardner (born February 9, 1954 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is a entrepreneur, stockbroker, motivational speaker and philanthropist who, during the early 1980s, struggled with homelessness while raising his toddler son, Christopher, Jr.
Gardner's book of memoirs, The Pursuit of Happyness, was published in May 2006.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>As of 2006, he is CEO of his own stockbrokerage firm, Gardner Rich & Co, based in Chicago, Illinois, where he resides when he is not living in Toronto.
Gardner credits his tenacity and success to the "spiritual genetics" handed down to him by his mother, Bettye Jean Triplett, born Gardner, and to the high expectations placed on him by his children, son Chris Jr. (born 1981) and daughter Jacintha (born 1985).
Gardner's personal struggle of establishing himself as a stockbroker while managing fatherhood and homelessness is portrayed in the 2006 motion picture The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Gardner did not have many positive male role models as a child, as his father was living in Louisiana during his birth, and his stepfather was physically abusive to his wife and children. Triplett's rages made Gardner and his sisters constantly afraid.
In one incident, Bettye Jean was falsely imprisoned when Triplett reported her to the authorities for welfare fraud; the children were placed in foster care. When Gardner was eight years old, he and his sisters returned to foster care a second time when their mother, unbeknownst to them, was convicted of trying to kill Triplett by burning down the house while he was inside</li></li></ul><li>Despite her unhappy marriage and her periods of absence, Bettye Jean was a source of inspiration and strength to her son Chris. She encouraged Gardner to believe in himself and sowed the seeds of self-reliance in him.<br />“CHRIS GARDENER WITH HIS SON”<br />
Gardner quotes her as saying, <br />"You can only depend on yourself. The cavalry ain't coming.“<br /><ul><li> Gardner also determined from his early experiences that alcoholism, domestic abuse, child abuse, illiteracy, fear and powerlessness were all things he wanted to avoid in the future.</li></ul> <br />
Akbar The Great <br />Akbar The Great (1542 – 1605)<br />Akbar was the greatest of the Moghul emperors, consolidating a large empire across India, and establishing a culture promoting the arts and religious understanding.<br />
<ul><li>Akbar was the son of Humayun, grandson of Babur, and became the third Moghul Emperor. Although the first part of his reign was taken up with military campaigns, Akbar displayed a great interest in a wide variety of cultural, artistic, religious and philosophical ideas.
Akbar was also know for his religious tolerance and, although a Muslim, took an active interest in other religions.
Akbar came to the throne, aged 14, on the death of his father Humayun. For the next 20 years, he had to fight to defend and consolidate the Moghul empire.
He faced threats from the Afghans in the North and from the Hindu King, Samrat Hemu.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Akbar was known to have many good qualities. He was fearless in battle and willing to risk his life. He was generous to friends and rewarded loyalty.
In his diet he was quite frugal, preferring a vegetarian diet. He had a great interest in religion and encouraged representatives of different religions to come to his court to debate great religious ideas.
Akbar felt that the different religions were compatible with each other - offering different approaches to the same goal.
Towards the end of his life he tried to create his own religion - an amalgamation of different religious traditions. However, it never extended beyond his personality and soon faded away after his death.
(Akbar died in around 1605 and was buried near Agra).</li></ul> <br />
MOTHER TERESA<br /><ul><li>Mother Teresa, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, attained world wide fame for her life dedicated to serving the poor and destitute.

"Love cannot remain by itself -- it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service ."</li></li></ul><li><ul><li> In her early years she worked as a teacher in the slums of Calcutta, the widespread poverty made a deep impression on her and this led to her starting a new order called “The Missionaries of Charity”.
The primary objective of this mission was to look after people, who nobody else was prepared to. Mother Teresa felt that serving others was a key principle of the teachings of Jesus Christ. She often mentioned the saying of Jesus,
"Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to me."</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Awards Mother Teresa :
