About Us

Our Approach

You could call it also “our philosophy”,”our vision.” This is the place to talk about what drives you and your efforts (such as philosophy, arts, business, etc.) and what’s unique about your thoughts, opinion, views. What you write and contribute for publication here should be something distinct and interesting about your thoughts and approach that set it apart from others in the same pursuit. Our job is to help you tell the story we and you want to tell. Each one of us is also a brand–not just visual images, but an entire package of visuals, media interaction, digital marketing, and creative positioning. If you think this isn’t attaining the levels of recognition or success it should, then let’s connect: [email protected] .

The Team

Irshad Salim is the Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of DesPardes.com -he’s also the founder of the platform Home & Abroad.

Salim began his stint with the media in the early teens–back in 1969. Over the years, home and abroad, he has also developed a passion for the visuals, arts & literature, creative writing, and the digital ecosystem –starting with DesPardes.com in Jan 2000. Twenty years later, in January 2020, Salim launched the BACK2SCHOOL WhatsApp Forum –from Islamabad.

Rest of us are “John Doe’s” and “Jillian Doe’s”, and et als –and all are Desis home and abroad! They are critical thinking-driven. They struggled over the years to become content writers, specialists- creative and digital–through re-learning with the back to school drive– some of them are sans formal education, background, experience and exposure in digital communication. All of them volunteer and work pro bono though.

Lately, a significant number of despardes.com readers have been sharing and interacting with us on the WhatsApp –from home and abroad.
