On January 10th, 2012 – I buried my friend, my best friend, my brother. I ended a 10 hour travel journey only to kneel beside his coffin in disbelief as I saw the face of the man who I had depended on more times than I can remember and who I had shared my entire childhood with. As I whimpered in my plea for him to get up, I realized that somehow throughout my entire journey I had not come to terms with the news that had been delivered to me that fateful morning. How could I? Azeem was singlehandedly the strongest person I had ever met in my life. There was nothing that could happen to him, indestructible… nothing could even wipe the smile off his face, let alone this. It was far too much for me to believe. And as I stood on the footholds of his grave holding fiercely onto the ropes that descended his body, just as he did, the reality sunk… that he was no longer in the same world as me.

Everyone who ive spoken to has said, that they have no words. I, dont have Enough words to say about Azeem. I cannot say enough about the way he conducted his life. I cannot say enough about his general outlook towards life. From my early teen years to now, trials and tribulations, big or small… he taught me to deal with them lightly. He taught me how to not take life seriously and not let anything affect me. No matter what would happen, he always knew it would be a passing phenomenon, even when I thought the world was coming to an end. I cannot express the joys my childhood has had because of Azeem. We were closer than brothers and thicker than thieves. We were in trouble together and we shone together. I dont have a lot of memories, that dont include Azeem. He was the best friend I could ever have asked for. He would indulge the most mundane tasks to the most ridiculous. He fought for me. He took care of me. He seemed to be oblivious to the world, yet he was the most dependable, caring human being. He cared for and took care of his family like no young boy I have ever seen. When we were desparately running away from our homes, defying for our own independance and seeking our identities, he was taking care of his family and also ours. When I left for the US, he made sure my parents didnt feel alone.

He was a man of remarkable stature, even at his age. He had made great political strides and was very well known and well respected. Yet, he was the most humble person you have met. Whether he would be walking in the streets of his village, or the avenues of islamabad, you would never be able to tell.. that he was a Daultana or an MNA. He greeted everyone the same, from the workers in the field to his colleagues in the assembly. He was warm with whoever he met. As I paused to give a beggar my leftover change this morning, I remembered where I got that habit from. He would go to great… sometimes annoying lengths to give some change, or food to anyone who came knocking on his car widow or on the street. I have never seen him turn anyone asking for money down.

I dont think I have ever heard him speak ill of anyone. There were people who would speak ill of him and I would often scold him for being so complacent, but he always used to say, they have their opinion, as long as it keeps them happy… He was always looking for the positive in every person, in every situation. He was loyal to the core. Often times, recently, and foolishly, I had questioned his party and the politics involved, and he would explain in great detail the rights and wrongs. He believed in himself and he beleived that inherently, people were good, which is a lot to say given the cynicism of Pakistani politics. He was ambitious and extremely driven. He never sat still. When his friends were sleeping and being lazy, he was on the phone, or meeting relatives or planning an adevnture. He loved our great north, having planned several trips to the northern areas. He was an admirer of nature and had been to many hang gliding trips, taking flights of 2-3 hours.

As I told my friend the day after his death – “You could commit the greatest of sins, and he would be the only one to help you, to stand by your side, no matter the consequences”. We have all done something in our lives or arrived at junctures where we invite advice or solicit lectures from the ones closest to us. Azeem has never lectured me. Always told me to do what I needed to do and that deep down, you always know what that is. He had somehow achieved the perfect mix of mischief and respect, which was awe inspiring. There is a certain comfort that comes from knowing and being close to a person that will under no circumstances judge you. It is liberating. The day he died, the child in me…. the innocence in me… my license to be carefree, has also died. When everyone told me I must mend my ways, that I need to grow up… to be respectful, I knew of atleast ONE person who would not disapprove.

As I drove away, on that dusty road in Luddan, where your final resting place is – I couldnt help but realize that I will always remember my life in two ways – Before January 10th, 2012 and After January 10th, 2012. You have left a void that no one can fill. You have taken with you, my fondest of memories – and on that dusty road in Luddan, somewhere, a large part of me is buried with you. You will always be on my mind, you will always be in my heart and I will take you with me wherever I go, because you may not be in this world anymore, but you are a part of me of who I am and always will be. Thank you for everything and I will see you again in our next life.

Please leave your thoughts and comments for Azeems in the Comment section.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry.
    I am not there I did not die.
    —- mary elizabeth frye. —

    Azeem Daultana, he will be so missed, his lovely smile was so disarmig and he was so soft spoken, full of caring and gentleness and one of God’s finer Creations of humanity.

  22. - Amile says:

    You were the glue that kept us all together
    You were the hand that brought us to where we stand
    You fought for our country with everything you had
    Your despise so early makes me really sad

    My brother, my hero, my friend
    You will be in our hearts till the end
    It was not your time to go, not this soon
    We will finish what you started, witness be the moon

    You were humble, kind and down to earth
    This world was blessed with your birth
    You taught us to be carefree and kind
    Oh lord, what a beautiful mind.

    You were there for me through whatever I did
    Forgive me for anything I might have said wrong or did
    I sit here alone, gasping in despair, wondering how life can be so unfair.
    All I can do now is sit and pray, helpless and in dismay

    But Inside my heart, I know that God will be kind to someone so gentle and sublime
    We envy God to have loved you more than us, to take you away at the happiest of times
    It was not your time to go, it should have been mine

    Your wicked smile, your patriotic heart
    Pakistan weeps for you with all that it has got
    One of the youngest parliamentarians, one of the youngest cabinet members
    Everything was going so well up till December

    You were a brother, you were a friend
    And I knew I could count on you till the end
    You were everyone’s favorite, even mine
    I just wish I had gotten to meet you properly one last time

  23. - Amile says:

    *Your demise so early makes me really sad

  24. Benish says:

    The inseparable three Taimoor, Azeem and Hashim, I have such fond memories of you all growing up. Cant imagine not seeing you together. Will never forget the good times we have shared.

  25. Benish says:

    May you find strength old friend to get through this difficult time. I am deeply saddened by your loss! …..love.

  26. Jay says:

    Taimoor, just saw this and I am truly speechless and cant even think to imagine the grief you are in. I don’t know of Azeem but from what you have written, I feel like I know him as a part of yourself. My heart goes out to you. Just read somewhere Life is made up of years that mean nothing at all and moments that mean it all. Hold on to those moments my friend…they keep us going and just to let you know, right here to share your grief

  27. Jahanyab says:

    I was one of the unfortunate few who only got to meet Azeem Bhai a few times. Yet each time I did, he met me as if I was his own younger brother as opposed to his younger brother’s friend. The way he smiled while greeting you made you feel comfortable with him instantly, making you feel as if you were an equal to him, allowing you to speak and listen to each other freely without the generally imposed societal taboos due to age or something. That isn’t just an admirable, yet rare talent as well. Many try, but hardly any actually succeed in doing so. Add that to the countless stories Amile has told me about Azeem Bhai with a distinct glint of admiration in his eyes, I felt as though I knew him much better than I actually did, making me personally feel this loss more than I would’ve expected. I’m not generally the sentimental type, yet when I heard the news, when I read Amile’s poem, when I read this testimonial, let’s just say I was more than just teary eyed. I would say that I wish I’d gotten to know him better, however, I’m gonna chalk that one up as a regret, it wouldn’t be fair to Azeem Bhai or his family if I make such a selfish wish, instead I’m gonna hope and pray that God provide the patience and strength required to be able to cope with such a tragic, sudden and.. unfair loss to Aunty, Uncle, Natasha, Amile, Sarwan and Geena. I pray that God somehow fill the void left behind by Azeem Bhai in the hearts of countless people. And I pray that God has already placed Azeem Bhai in the house next to His in heaven. Ameen.

  28. Muhammad Tariq Mehmood says:

    he was a good person from doltana family. he was 1st person who think about people of luddan…… He is my favirout person…………. may Allah Rest in soul……………

  29. Ali Imran says:

    Dear Azeem…. I am still unable to believe that you have left us and have gone to heavens……
    Azeem, a friend since we have been 5….. was just 3 months older to me. Whenever, he used to come to Luddan, there was fun…. we used to spend much time of the day playing together, typical village games (both indoor and outdoor)….. sharing chocolates…. Going every day to picnic point at Sutluj, getting back and then waiting for next day to rise to play again…..
    It went like this from 1984 to 1993….
    My second round of interactions with Azeem became in 1997 when I was studying at Government College Lahore, and one day he came there…. It was nice surprise to meet him after five years….. we had talked for hours and hours sharing the childhood memories….
    Third phase of our interaction came, when Azeem decided to take part in politics… I met him so many time during his election campaigns….. and Finally the day came, when he was elected MNA from Luddan….. I can not forget the celeberations we had at his home…
    We used to travel together on occasions and had so many sharings. We used to have discuss on the topics from politics to marriage… and even got bet that who will marry first….
    I still remember the day when, I went Luddan after joing UNFPA, and our local friends invited us for a feast….. On that occasion, Azeem made an impressive speech to the youth on their self-relient and asked them to work hard. “Believe in yourself and you can achieve everything”, these words are still in my ears….
    Our last meeting was on 10th of Muharram during procession…. when I saw him standing in respect of Shuhadai e Karbala…
    On night between 9th and 10th, I was at Multan for an official visit at a local hotel…. There was something, which was resulting in sinking of my heart…. I could not slept during night…. at 3:15am, I was watching TV when suddenly i read on local tv that “Muhammad Azeem Daultana traffic hadsay mein Jan Bahaq”….. For at least 5 minutes, I got out of my mind and could not understand what is written there….. Alas….. how did happen…. no this can not happen…. Is this about Azeem, with whom I had 28 years of friendship…. no…. no…. I started to change channels praying that this might be an incorrect news…. I could only believe when I called my brother in law, Manzoor Bhai who told that he is at hospital and Azeem is no more there….

    Azeem, we used a word in our legal practice “Irrepearable loss” and now, your death has resulted me truely understand this notion….

    May your sould rest in peace! Ameen, Aameen….
    Mian Zahid sb, Farah Bibi, Nitasha Bibi and all other family members! It is a big loss not by you, the family, but for each and every person of the area… Khuda aap ko himmat aur sabar ata farmaiye….

    With heavy heart…
    Ali Imran

  30. Ahsan Ali says:

    Taimoor, Couldn’t stop the tears after reading your testimonial…
    Wrote something for him too… Thought i’d share it with you…

    Azeem Khan Daultana, Daultana Saab, Azeem Bhai, Azeem, AD, we love you, and always will. It is painful to know you are not with us anymore. It gives our hearts a very tiny bit of consolation to know you are in a place much better than the world we live in. We miss you, and always will.
    I remember clearly the day I first met you. It was 1995. Aitchison College, prep school, next to the tennis courts. You were always so charming, and friendly, polite, ever so handsome, and witty, so pleasant, and caring and mischievous. A friends friend. No questions asked. Loyal. Ready to take one for the team. Ready to take one for your team. Your influence on the lives of people spanned from Luddan to Murree. The loss is irreplaceable.
    I always considered myself to be family. That’s the way I was always treated, and welcomed. Whether it was Luddan, Model Town, Main Boulevard, Cantt, Bedian, Raiwand, Parliament Lodges, Fur Hill.. Your love and hospitality was beautiful.
    The times we spent together will be in our memory for ever. I remember making the “Azeem Daultana Appreciation Society”, back in 2008. I wrote:
    “For all those die hard AD fans, who know the potential that this individual possesses. AD’s getting the ticket for MNA, might be one small step for man, but its a giant leap for mankind.
    And a few months later…
    AD has become MNA! Member National Assembly. a political hero, representing the great village of Luddan, Zilla Vehari.”

    The memories of the amazing times we spent with you will always be in our hearts and minds.

    Memories
    The hunting expeditions in Vehari and Chakwal,
    The economics tutoring on the main boulevard,
    The road tripping in the mountains so far,
    The times we went Peshawar Paar,
    The goon kouts in the double sarr rang
    The firey arguments that never stung
    The breakfast and dinners at the havaili-e-Luddan
    With our brother Waseem, the Don of Luddan
    The good times where we had no worries
    And you decided to leave us in a hurry
    You were always Salman Bhai’s jaan
    And you’re now right next to him eating a paan

    Ahsan Ali
    Praying for the Darling of my heart, Azeem Bhai.

  31. Ahmed Khan says:

    Azeem Daultana you will be missed. Pakistan needs more people like you.

    May Allah bless you in paradise.

  32. Raza Khan says:

    Azeem was my senior in Aitchison College. I did not know him, as a friend..maybe never even spoken to him. But I do remember him as a senior fellow with a pleasant disposition and immaculate mannerism..a thorough gentleman. May his soul RIP and may God give his family the strength to bear the loss. Amen!

  33. Ma says:

    My dear Azeem, you know that you were my best friend, my father,my brother and my world. I lived my life through you and only you. You never disappointed me, never made me upset, never disobeyed me and never left my side.

    Rumi says:
    On the day I die, don’t say he’s gone. Death has nothing to do with going away.
    The sun sets, and the moon sets but they’re not gone.
    Death is a coming together.
    The human seed goes down into the ground like a bucket,
    and comes up with some unimagined beauty.
    Your mouth closes here, and immediately opens
    with a shout of joy there.
