Every year Stanford releases the Top Scientist list. This list documents 2% of the world’s best scientists/researchers. These are individuals who excel in their respective fields. And being acknowledged worldwide, it means quite a lot to not just the individuals in question but also to the country they belong from.

However much the intolerance for each other is in Pakistan, however many people troll others on the internet, whenever some good news that brings up Pakistan’s name emerges, we Pakistanis as a nation support them and appreciate them. Now it could mean our films being released in international festivals, young athletes taking the name of Pakistan to new heights or the professors who keep pursuing don’t waver even as they hear jokes on their profession or discouraging statements.
These professors have shown that when you keep on working hard, you do get appreciated, even if it takes time. So for all those who may be having anxiety seeing so many celebrities emerge around them in a short time thanks to social media, they start believing that they are not achieving anything. This news will serve as a beacon of light for them. Because steady hard work is the key to everything.
