I am Valibhai Musa; but my nick name, since my primary education, is “William” among my classmates at the time then and presently also the same limited to my friend circle. My native place is Kanodar, Banaskantha, Gujarat, India. Kanodar was once known as the Manchester of Banaskantha for its Textile Industry.
I am the son of totally illiterate parents and was the very first person in my family to go out for Secondary Education. I passed my Old S.S.C. in 1959 from the Govt.High School at Palanpur. I passed my B.A. (Hons.) in 1966 with Gujarati, English and Sociology. My father died when I was 16 years old and since then for half the century I have been leading my-our united families.
With the grace of the Almighty, my parallel as well next generation family members are highly educated and some settled abroad also. The educational progress of my village is also so high compared to other surrounding villages that our Four Century Old Handloom Cloth Weaving business is like a dream now a days.
I am a man of literature and in 1965 my first story ‘Jalsamadhi’ in Gujarati (Regional language) was published in a Magazine. After that many stories in various College and other Magazines were published. I have some poems and Hykoos (Japanese poetry) also written in Gujarati which are also unpublished. No any book of mine is published till today due to my busy life in my family business in various lines such as Automobile, Hotels, Stock Market, and Doctor House etc… I shall, occasionally, publish those old works as well as the new ones for my readers on my blog.
On 7th July, 2007, I shall complete my 66 years if the God wishes. With the blessings of Him, my health is quite satisfactory and through this internet media I am ambitious to serve the human kind with a motto – Live and Let Live – to be spread. I consider myself a very common man and many common experiences of my life may perhaps be useful to so many common people like me. Our life is our own institution where we are all and all -Principal, Professor and student. Once, Churchill had rightly quoted, ‘I learnt wisdom from the foolish people.’
Your comments, ideas, questions, queries etc. will highly be appreciated regarding my blog articles.

MAY GOD FULFILL ALL YOUR GOOD WISHES WHICH YOUR RELIGION ALLOWS…
YOU WILL BE ALWAYS REMEMBERED IN MY PRAYERS..
KEEP EXPLORING YOURSELF AND LET OTHERS TAKE BENEFIT FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE AND YOUR NOBLE THOUGHT….
HOPE YOU WILL UPLOAD SOME OF YOUR NOBLE THOUGHTS MORE THAN EXISTING…
July 23, 2007 at 5:51 am
I have read your blog with interest and would urge you to publish a book as well….The joy that your collective wisdom and thoughts can/will bring to someone a couple of decades down the road when he will pick up your book in a, let’s say, bargain store, shelved away somewhere, out of the prying hands and eyes of the mundane….imagine that! Blogs are a digital world and after the initial euphoria I think they don not have a lasting life…I might be wrong here, but I still stand by my opinion…A small run, let’s say of 100 print of your book will actually be read by those 100 people….digitial blog hits are pretty ephemeral….anyways, thumbs up to your kawish…..

Alhaj Valibhai Musa Saheb,
I am pleased reading your article ‘Inflation & Insurance’. I wish to spread out this message to Insurance’s Employees and Management for their kind knowledge and further action in future. I am glad to read your Bio-Data. I am proud for you as in a small village, illiterate parents, in a minority cast etc… you have developed interesting web site and spread out your positive thoughts to the world. I pray to Allah, Almighty for your good health and wish to get knowledge form you from time to time.

Dear Bhaishree Kadiwala,
I am thankful to you for both your comments. It is the grace of Almighty Creator that some enthuastic members of my next generation inspired and helped me to go for this wonderful media of knowledge. At this age of dusk of my life, I enjoy very much with the satisfaction that I could convey to others my life long experiences of most of the fields of life. Everybody passes through such experiences and they may be more inspiring rather than my own, but all are not capable to express them in words. It is the greatest divine favor to me in this regard.
Hope you will inspire others not only to read my work but the works of all those great writers that can lead us towards betterment of our lives. My independent hosting web site is under construction and within couple of weeks it will be lodged. My Articles and viewers will automatically be diverted to it.
I once again express my feeling of gratitude that you will occasionally put your comments on my Articles. Further, I ask you to feel free even to put your ideas of any disagreement with my ideas. This is a wonderful platform for debate on various topics where all are free to exchange ideas in good manners following ethical norms of making comments.

Really feel proud of having such a great person in our village. Young generation can learn so many things from you.. May God bless you.

Dear Valibhai…I had visited your Blog several times & this is the 1st time I read your Profile…Now, I seem to know you better ( knowing more of your life ) but you had become a ” true friend ” of mine even before this…I can only say this was God intended & I thank God only for that…..I had visited Palanpur in 2007 to meet my friend Godadbhai Sagrasania…but then we did not know eachother…I have the hope that one day we may meet …& leave that to God !

To the point and impressive introduction. I am seeing your website for the first time. I will have a close look at various sections in due course.
March 21, 2010 at 9:11 am
It is nice to know you (courtesy Dr. Chandravadanbhai) though I very much wish I had known about you much earlier! I was posted in BSF Dantiwada for three years and it would have been such a great pleasure to meet you.
I read a few posts in your blog and liked them. Thoughts that come from the heart touch the hearts of others and they become a bridge. Your writing is one such bridge which has joined hearts of like minded people. Yes, indeed, it is nice to know you.

Honorable Capt. Narendra
Salutes to your dignitary and your duties rendered to our Nation. I always honor Army Men. Seeds behind such feeling are lying in my heart since 1958, during my Secondary schooling days. I had joined Lok Sahayak Sena Camp for a month. Fifteen shots fired with 303 are still echoing in my ears. How excited I was then! I still remember Capt. Aziz Mirza who was our Head then and now I am putting my few words for one more Capt. here, you Sir.
Now, I come to our blogging world. I went through your some posts. All are really nice ones and well represented. Since November 2009, no new posts of yours appear on your Home Page. I humbly suggest you to schedule certain number of Articles in advance. Take my example, I have scheduled some 10/12 Articles. If I cannot write new ones meanwhile due to any reasons, the Articles already scheduled will be published automatically on their respective days. In brief to say, our Readers should not feel that we have stopped our blogging.
Praying for your good health.
With warm regards,
March 23, 2010 at 12:35 pm
ડો. ચન્દ્રવદન મિસ્ત્રીનો આભાર કે, તમારી વેબ સાઈટનું સરનામું આપ્યું. તમે પણ 59 ના મેટ્રીક અને હું પણ . તમે પાલનપુરી અને હું અમદાવાદી. પરિચય વાંચી બહુ આનંદ થયો.

ડો.શ્રી ચન્દ્રવદન ભાઈ અને હવે શ્રી પંચમભાઈની
એક કૃતિ પરના સમતોલ ભાષ્ય વાંચ્યા બાદ અત્રે
આપના બ્લોગની મુલાકાતથી ખૂબજ આનંદ થયો.
આઝાદી ના દશકાવાળી પેઢીના સંસ્કાર અને જોમ
તથા ભાવના ભર્યા આપના જેવા સજ્જનના સૌજન્યશીલ
સ્વભાવના દર્શન થયા.

I had heard your name from Murabbi Shri Sureshbhai Jani. Have forgotten the exact words expressed by Mu.Shri Su.Ja. but I have clear impression that he had expressed much regard for you, Valibhai.
What a lucid narration ‘about’ have been given!!
Really, Mr. Capt. Narendra has very rightly said, “Thoughts that come from the heart touch the hearts of others and they become a bridge. Your writing is one such bridge which has joined hearts of like minded people. Yes, indeed,..”

Hello Dr. Alimohammedbhai Polra
I am very much surprised to read your comment and also to know that you are in States now-a-days. Many times, I remember you and I had specially remembered you last year in August, 2010 when I had gone through my by-pass surgery in Krishna Hospital at Ahmedabad.
It is just like telepathy that you remembered me at right time when I am planning to pay a visit to US during July- August. with my son Mohmadali. My trip is limited for one and half month with our visit to Canada also. I have already your email Id with me with this comment and I’ll get in touch with you by Cell Phone that I keep with me there. I’ll let you know my Cell Phone.
Convey my Salaams to the members of your family.
With warm regards,
December 24, 2011 at 6:41 pm
