Sohail, a psychiatrist by profession has been passionately writing for the last two
decades. His collections of poems, stories, travelogues, novellas and essays have been
published in English, Urdu and Punjabi. His writings are an attempt to share his
humanistic philosophy of life.
summarized his views in his book
"Pages of My Heart" in the following words:
"I think that we have reached
such a turning point in history where we are
forced to make certain choices
individually and collectively. I hope that we do not proceed on
the path of self-destruction, which ends in collective suicide; rather
we decide to discover new ways of living harmoniously with other human
beings, Mother Nature and ourselves. Perhaps one day we will
reach that state of communal growth and human evolution where we can
accept that whether they are children or the elderly, women or
minorities, the physically disabled or mentally sick, all human beings
have a right to live respectfully and grow peacefully. For our
future development as a species we have to transcend the resentments
based on class, race, gender, language or religious differences and
anger because of the conflicts between the East and West, North and
South, first and third world and many other man made divisions.
Sooner or later we have to accept that we are all human, members of
the same family, and our enemies are part of us, just distant cousins.
I am quite aware that these are my personal and global dreams, but I
believe that we are the products of our dreams. When our dreams
are shattered we start to disintegrate individually and collectively. "
In addition, Dr. K. Sohail has written
extensively on different aspects of mental health and psychotherapy.
He has delivered his professional and
literary creations to a vast number of audiences at local,
provincial, national and international workshops, seminars and
conferences for a number of years.
