Ramzeen Azeez is one of the most well-read
people I know. He knows a lot about a lot of things and is generous

Mohammedan and I feel a discerning and humble student of the Holy
Quran. He teaches English to Sinhala children in Habarana. I am sure
he’s teaching them more than English songs and pronunciation, but it
warmed me when he informed me recently, with unmistakable pride,
that they can now sing ‘My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean’.
