    Greetings Wordwide!


    Today, Wed 1st Jan, 2014 – I Imran Kassim officially begins my writing on CNN as CNN iReporter. I want to thank the Almighty God for this New Year and hoping to get along, pretty well with you as we exchange ideas, Reason together, Give credits where it is due and Criticize where possible.


    Personally, I am a hard nut kind of person to convince on matters Football. I am Chelsea and Chelsea is Me! Forget the Others!! I dream Chelsea, Walk like a Blue Lion, and gossip Chelsea 24/7/365 Days! Perhaps; the reason why the Sky is Blue in colour!


    Religiously, I don’t give a damn about your scriptures. Yes, I am NOT here to take you or anyone to Heaven – Not now not ever! At times - We only argue on religion to waste time and that’s not my cup of tea. ! That’s It – In other words, I respect People’s Religion. I don’t care whether you worship stones or grass! That’s up to you and your “god”


    Politically, every leader is a Dictator per excellence. Everybody is a leader – So, you are not exceptional! Whether you are a mere office messenger or bloody thirsty Security Officer. Even the South African Sign Language guy is amongst us! Remember, the angels too didn’t comprehend the point he was putting across let alone the birds! Jeez.


    Money – Honey… oops! Sorry, I meant MONEY. This is how it confuses people from all walks of life. Both young and old, Men and women, Boys and Girls, Rich and Poor etc. It can make you change instantly from good to bad and vice versa. Let money not change you under any circumstances whatsoever.


    Music. Who even listen to music nowadays? You do? You lost!! I only listen to instrumentals Lol! Mmmm, hey;let me confirm whether I do listen to any genre of music – This is confusing …

    Relationship = Sometime back, a lady transferred to our school and joined us in class Seven at Marsabit Primary School in Marsabit County, Kenya. To welcome her, I voluntarily helped her to draw a rough sketch of a Kenyan map - Words went round like hell fire. You can guess what happened next…a little while later, I found her little sister. End of the story!!


    Youthfulness: youths are like Arsenal FC, full of hopes and patience. They can stay up to eight good years and still counting to be successful some day. Keep up the spirit – you are born a leader not a loser


    Haters: Don’t mind about them. They are just confused idiots who admire you secretly. Keep cool and Love them all.


    Finally, I am not quite certain whether I wrote this. I might have taken one too many sips of this tea!! Am out, I need to get a lawyer or two; whoever came up with Caffeine and Education must pay for it! I was born intelligent, but education has ruined me!
