I have a wonderful family consisting of my two parents and my younger
brother and myself.
- DAD: My Dad, Abu Jusab Halai, is the the finest
and most sharp of all men I have met. Tough times made him start
his own business
during his college years. He has studied Law, but is not a practicing
lawyer. They fondly call him Abu-bhai. Currently, he runs a construction
material depot, and estate agency. He is also actively managing my
Mom's beauty parlor - taking care of legal and operational details
- making it smooth for my mum. Dad loves to get involved in social
activities. He is always there for anyone who needs help. He loves
to listen to Mukesh and Mohd. Rafi. He has so many stories to tell
about his time when he dealt regularly with the film industry
He still does, but those yester-years sound so magnificent!
- MOM: My Mom, Hamida Abu Halai, is a very versatile
and intelligent lady. She is a certified Nurse and an accomplished
She has been through several ventures - first working as a nurse,
then running a photocopy shop, then running a beauty parlor -
while raising two intelligent kids at the same time. She loves to
keep herself busy! She is always full of energy, and always full
smart advice for me and my brother.
- SAMLI: My brother, Sameer Abu Halai, is perhaps
greater than Einstein. He is only two years younger to me, and
has been my best buddy. We
used to always have our little fights when we were kids, but its
surprising how thos have turned into sweet memories! He is
extremely intelligent. He could have easily
been a phenomenal philosopher - not to say he already isn't one.
He did his BS in Computer
Engineering from the University of Mumbai. He completed his MS
in Information Science from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
He now works as a Product
Manager for Microsoft. (Sameer's
