Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy's keynote at NED Convention 2007





An excellent keynote delivered by Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy at the recently held NED Alumni Convention in Silicon Valley. He talks about the power of ideas and how our universities need to be the center of ideas. He also talks about how simply allocating millions of rupees to the HEC budget isnt going to bring about a change in the country. You'll be astonished to hear some of the examples he gave of the misuse of such valuable funding. Like I said, a MUST Listen!

You would be doing a great favour to the people of pakistan if you put this up at youtube, so that a larger cross section of the society can benefit from this indept and perceptive analysis.

Its difficult for people to dig it up from here. It was by sheer luck that I came across this keynote. Other's migt not be that lucky.

Hope to see it on youtube soon.

God Bless..

Kind Regards,
