ABDUL RAZACK, THE MAN

Thinker, researcher, author, poet and activist for peace, T. K. Abdul Razack is a unique person who has a long record of silent public service. His style of life and work is entirely different from others. Born in an ordinary family in a village in Kerala, India, his early life was one of sufferings, constraints and setbacks. He never got any support or encouragement from any quarter. After a brilliant academic career, he accepted a life of service sacrificing a comfortable future as a government servant. He showed interest in everything which is directly or indirectly helpful for a good and peaceful life for his fellow-citizens. He never cares for publicity, monetary benefits or recognitions. He works without any media highlights. And he never supports violence, indiscipline and disorder of any kind.
