International Lenin Peace Prize
Soviet Government
1988

Summary

The International Lenin Peace Prize was a Soviet Union award named in honor of Vladimir Lenin. It was awarded by a panel appointed by the Soviet government, to notable individuals whom the panel indicated had “strengthened peace among comrades”. It was founded as the International Stalin Prize for Strengthening Peace Among Peoples, but was renamed the International Lenin Prize for Strengthening Peace Among Peoples as a result of de-Stalinization. Unlike the Nobel Prize, the Lenin Peace Prize was usually awarded to several people a year rather than to just one individual. The prize was mainly awarded to prominent Communists and supporters of the Soviet Union who were not Soviet citizens. Notable recipients include: W. E. B. Du Bois, Fidel Castro, Salvador Allende, Mikis Theodorakis, Seán MacBride, Angela Davis, Pablo Picasso, Oscar Niemeyer, Faiz Ahmad Faiz, Abdul Sattar Edhi and Nelson Mandela.

Abdul Sattar Edhi: a Mirror to the Blind

1996

Summary

With: Tehmina Durrani

National Bureau of Publications

Edhi’s biography is humble just like the man himself but as you dwell into the ways he ran his non-profit organization from a single clinic in Karachi and grew it to the largest welfare organization with ambulance fleet of helicopters as well as emergency mini-vans, one gets amazed how well this man performed. He continues to shun the limelight, prefering the humility of a sufi saint. His book is my favorite book and an inspiration for the making of the greatest leadership types: humble leaders! His organization methods seems to have come from an mba of Harvard business school yet he never went to school past third grade! Amazing book and an excellent read!
