Slogan - - Cover Story -

An­war Maq­sood is not only a true en­ter­tainer but also a very good hu­man be­ing. The man pos­sesses ex­tra­or­di­nary and ver­sa­tile tal­ents. He is an in­de­fati­ga­ble writer of TV and stage plays, a gifted mas­ter of cer­e­monies whose one-lin­ers are pieces of lit­er­a­ture in them­selves and an artist with a great aes­thetic sense that is de­picted in his paint­ings. There must be so many other tal­ents hid­den in his per­son­al­ity that his ad­mir­ers have not dis­cov­ered yet. I per­son­ally ex­pe­ri­enced his hu­mane­ness when I re­quested him to ap­pear briefly in a doc­u­men­tary I was mak­ing on poor chil­dren. He ea­gerly wel­comed me and the film crew at his res­i­dence, entertained us to a scrump­tious tea and then gave four or five sep­a­rate takes for the film, with­out of course charg­ing a penny. At Ro­tary’s po­lio jin­gle $O 1ADAM HE QUOTED h!LL THE CHIL­DREN OF our coun­try are our col­lec­tive re­spon­si­bil­ity. These chil­dren are your chil­dren, they are my chil­dren. Two drops of po­lio vac­cine, ev­ery child, ev­ery time. This is our ex­pres­sion of care and love for them.” I have great re­spect and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for An­war Maq­sood.
