Malala, a Pakistani teen blogger is a symbol of defiance against militants. An outspoken critic of Taliban Malala came into news when she was shot head on 9 October 2012, in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus. In the days immediately following the attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition, but later her condition improved she was sent to a hospital in the UK for intensive rehabilitation.She is known for her education and women’s rights activism in her country where the Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. In early 2009, at the age of 11/12, Yousafzai wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls.
Malala’s undomineering courage has already helped her in achieving a nomination for the International Children’s Peace Prize by Desmond Tutu and Nobel Peace Prize. The latest feather in her cap is that she has signed a deal of $3 million to publish her memoir.and this is an incredible feat.The book, titled “I am Malala”, will be published by Weidenfeld & Nicholson in the UK and Commonwealth and by Little, Brown in the rest of the world.
