The buzz regarding Arshad Khan, the #ChaiWala from Islamabad keeps getting more hype day by day. From covering all local reporting forums to hitting international channels like BBC, everybody is happy with success knocking on Arshad Khan’s door.
Given how one man’s life has changed through the power of social media, there has been ongoing debate how there are more “worthy” people in Pakistan who deserve attention and help.
One of these is a chai wala from Karachi, Syed Taj Muhammad Khan.
Taj is no ordinary chai wala – he holds a Guinness World Record that is yet to be challenged.
Take a look:
It Is Not An Everyday Sight That A Pakistani Sets A Record in Guinness World Records
And when a Pakistani does set a record, there is no hype, there is no media coverage and there is no acknowledgment.
What Is Taj’s Record Achievement?
On 20th March, 2016, Taj Muhammad achieved the record of doing 2,175 knuckle push ups in one hour.
With his kind of training and achievement, Taj can definitely train more youth prospects of our nation. Taj is currently working as a tea maker and server at Taj Hotel, near airport in Karachi. Regardless of what one may feel, he is very happy with his job and does not complain about his financial issues or how our country doesn’t support him.
However, we all know that he deserves a lot more.
There is no harm in all the fame Arshad Khan is receiving – he is a hardworking man with a big family who needs to find ways to fulfill the needs of his loved ones. If his good looks can help him achieve bigger things in life, it is a great thing for him. However, people like Taj require much more attention than what we gave to Arshad Khan.
The irony is that none of us really knew about this chai wala, the holder of Guinness World Record and the pride of Pakistan. He deserves much more attention and help so that he can continue making our country proud and train to achieve better things in life.
If there is anyone who can help Taj, please step forward. He deserves it.
How can we help? We need to get in touch with Taj and see what he requires in order to achieve more in his life.
