Paying Respect to the Late Mr.’Sufi’

Click here to read in Gujarati
Some of my Readers inquired of non-appearance of any Articles on my blog since
June 12, 2008. Being these days very busy in my business, I was silent in my blogging activity for some time. A friend of mine mailed me in hesitating words whether I am o.k. by health. The hidden tone of mail was to know whether I am alive. With the grace of God, I am here but ‘somebody’ is there in proximity of the Almighty Creator. The angel of death might have mistaken and in my place (because I am a high B.P. patient), our dearest personality – Honorable Mohmadali Parmar ‘Sufi’ – has been lifted from this mortal world to endless unseen world. A shining star named ‘Sufi’ crumbled down from the sky of the planet of blogging.

A devoted group of Gujarati bloggers, led by Mr. Vijaykumar Shah and his many other friends, is very active in Houston (USA) serving Gujarati language, its literature and its community. Mr. Sufi was one of them, a popular figure known to all, dear to all as an old hand man of 85 and the noblest of the nobles. His blog in Gujarati was titled as “Adhyatmik Kavyo’ i.e. Spiritual (Mystical) poems. My Readers may visit his blog – (which is still live, but alas! Mr. ‘Sufi’ is not alive) for the detailed information of his creations as well as his life.

My Readers will be surprised to know that the Late Janab Mohmadali Parmar and I happened to know each other only before three months to his demise through our blogging and a very little communication by e-mails. My photograph was already there on my home page and he would have seen me, but it was my hard luck that I could see his face only when his son – Mr. Siraj announced the Late’s celebration of life arranged at Houston with his photograph. A proverbial slogan is very popular that a man is known by the company he keeps. In case of our relationship, I could know him through his poetry. Now, it would be appropriate if I say that a poet is known by the poetry he writes.

While mentioning our brief acquaintance, I remember a poem written by the renowned poet Ben Johnson on comparison of a tree of oak and a flower of lily. Oak lives for about 300 years, but life of a lily is hardly a day. The central idea of the poem is that how long we live does not matter, but how well we live is important. Here, it is the matter of proud for everybody who knows Mr. Sufi that he lived long and at the same time well also. In brief to say that his life can be measured by both years and good deeds.

When we refer his introductory and disclaimer page on his blog, we can see that he was really a ‘Sufi’ saint of the time. His words written in Gujarati are meant as “My poems are spiritual. They are aimed to the welfare of the people, to prevent them from falling down morally and to create the feelings of universal brotherhood into their minds and hearts.” He further explains that all the religions of the world are just like ladders to reach perfection. By the way, it is the matter of worth mention that I had put a comment of support for his some lines in my words as “Silence of good people encourages evil indirectly.” To be good is not enough. Good people should encourage others also to be good.

Summing up, let us pray to the Almighty God to rest the Late’s departed soul among those who enjoy the mercy and pleasure of Him.

With deep affections,

1st Anniversary of “William’s Tales”

Today – May 5, 2008 – is the one-year anniversary of my blog “William’s Tales”. A year ago on this day, I had stepped into this amazing blog-sphere, and started my activity of publishing my Articles. The whole year remained full of wonder and pleasure to me. With the technical support of Munish Musa, my nephew at Canada; I could concentrate fully towards my creative work. Thus, the real credit for the success of this blog goes to him.

It was really very difficult for me to predict the future of my blog. By observing certain etiquettes and protocols of a Blogger and Blogging, I have made the least efforts from my end to promote the viewership of my Blog. Some friends, my Blog referrers and many well-wishers have done their best to bring my Blog to the knowledge of the people worldwide on my behalf. I am at loss of words to thank them for their valuable support in this regard.

Through new dashboard of ‘Wordpress’, I have collected some statistics of my blog which I am thrilled to share with my viewers.

  • Categories – 80 & Tags – 144.
  • Classification of Articles:

    • Short Essays – 15
    • Articles – 21
    • Short Stories – 15
    • Poetry – 7
    • Misc. – 3

Extracts from some Comments:

Troy Morrison says, “I very much enjoyed the way you put it together.” (Character and Reputation)

Ash Dude says, “I have read your blog with interest and would urge you to publish a book as well… (About me)

Arvind Joshi says, “I liked your spread in the sky with imagination of Kanta.” (My better-half, a Gujarati story)

Anisa Musa says, “I hope you willpost more about him (Late Dr. Ali Musa), as I enjoyed reading those two.” (Not All Doctors Money Hungry)

Suzanne Langley says, “I have visited this site on many an occasion, but this post is the 1st one that I have ever commented on.” (A man’s household foes!)

Krishnamoorthy A. N. says, “It is a very interesting and thought provoking. It opened my vistasfor my son who also embarked on commerce stream.” (Power of Determination)

Alex says, “Very nicely put. I completely agree with you on sex selectiveabortionit should be considered as conscious attempt/crime to murder.” (Mercy Killing or Merciful Death – A Debate)

Zohrin says, “This article might bring smile on their face.”(Mercy Killing or Merciful Death –A Debate)

Roohi Payala says, “I totally agree with u, but I can’t understand 1 line we can reach a truth, but we cannot reach the truth. What do u mean by this line?” (Mercy Killing or Merciful Death – A Debate)

I have received some requests from my Readers that some Essays related to character building, human behavior, social life, spirituality, family, education etc. might be translated into Gujarati and re-posted for Gujarati Readers. I, very regretfully and politely, dishonor the request with the only reason that it is a time consuming process and my new creation might be affected adversely. Even though, I have got published two translated Essays (1) Honesty; and (2) Divorce – Legal, but Undesirable, as a guest blogger on “”, a Gujarati web site of my friend Mr. Vijaykumar Shah of Houston (USA). My viewers may visit this site for its rest quality publishing(s) also. In future, as and when it is possible, I’ll try my best to honor the above request; but, I cannot assure firmly.

Last but not the least, I thank you, my Readers around the globe, for visiting my blog, leaving comments, encouraging me by mail and telephone and making my blog more and more flourished day by day. My special thanks to ‘wordpress’ also that has provided me a platform to perform my role as a blogger, reach distant areas of the world through my authorship and have a number of new contacts of the people worldwide. The list of many others who have contributed, in one way or another, to build a very little hut of my small success of “William’s Tales” is fairly lengthy. I thank to all them for their moral support extended to my works and me, open or disguised.

I can be e-mailed at for any communications.

Thanking you, once again
