About Me and This Site

Hello World. I am Rashid Aziz Faridi from India- a Teacher, Student, Researcher, and Blogger, interested in acquiring and sharing knowledge. This Blog is a step in that journey. This originated from the desire to contribute to society and to the expanding horizon of Earth Sciences. I always wanted to reach out to students all over the globe.I want to make a difference in the lives of people .  Blogging helps me to do that.

I am presently working as a Professor of Geography at AMU. There were other academicians in my family like my famous uncle Fazlur Rahman Faridi. There is a page about him on Wikipedia. My father was a famous innovative vet and my mother was a businesswoman.

Blogging helps to organise my thought process and allows me to get better insights into things I am interested in.

Blogging gives me a wider audience and I love it.

This Blog is a  journey. My Learning Journey. My academic journey and my thought train often reflect in posts. I write here about geography quite regularly. I also borrow the writings of fellow Geographers.

I also write here about my thoughts and an occasional book review. This blog is about my musings.

I am an explorer, a wanderer

I want to:

  • explore
  • experiment
  • make my students finest in the world
  • transform them into leaders
  • live life on my own terms
  • follow my passions
  • make my life The Passion

    Would you be interested to send us a guest post on any of the issues related to the topics that you cover in your blog. We will publish it in our site http://www.huliq.com

    In return with each guest blog we will give one link in the author’s biline back to your blog. We only ask that the guest post ( we prefer it be a news coverage, sources can be Google News, CNN, MSNBC, Yahoo News, BBC and others) be a unique story and not be published in your blog.

    Please let me know if you may have any questions about http://www.huliq.com.

    If you want to consult the topic with me first that’s perfectly fine as well.

    Many thanks

        Rashid, this is extremely interesting! Our visions are extremely similar. We definitely need to discuss some possibilties in more detail. The Jugraphia site looks very nice and it powerful to gather voices in the same field. ClimateSnack is different as we aim to improve the actual communication skills. We have some clear synergies that we can discuss! Please contact me at mathew.reeve@uni.no. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Great information. Thank you for finding my blog interesting enough to follow.


  27. 67merrill says:

    Hi Rashid. Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog. (I agree with Daniela there.) Although our daily interests are worlds apart, we seem to have similar underlying sentiments. As a member of a troublesome, yet remarkable species, I’m not sure we’ll get past ourselves, but keep hoping. Keep up the good fight.

  29. Mr Faridi, thank you for reblogging my work. I believe this is the second time I have been honored. It is my hope that what I write will cause a few individuals to think and challenge what they presume to know. By the way, I have been ti India many times, I enjoyed Bangalore the most of all my stays.


  30. Greetings from Indonesian bloggers 🙂


  31. Khalid Faridi says:

    Rashid, one important person you missed out from your introduction in this blog is your spouse. I believe her, being also an academic, mention will add colors to your already great academic credentials.
