Brazil­ian salute

Mid Day - - DAILY DOSSIER -

Malala Yousafzai is soak­ing up some sun in Brazil at the mo­ment, where the ac­tivist is meet­ing girls from across the coun­try. And while there, she has started an ini­tia­tive on Twit­ter ti­tled #AskMalala. It in­volves Brazil­ian mem­bers of the mi­cro-blog­ging site ask­ing Yousafzai any ques­tion un­der the sun. And the peo­ple who caught our eye with their queries were two of Brazil’s most fa­mous sons — Pele and Paulo Coelho. While the foot­baller asked, “What can we do to make sure we are giv­ing girls the chances they de­serve?”, the au­thor wrote, “I don’t want to ask any­thing, but to say loud a clear THANK YOU. You are an ex­am­ple for chil­dren, teenagers and adults alike. May your path be blessed (sic),” which echoes our sen­ti­ments.
