But he chose to work in his village of birth and feels so lucky to get an opportunity to impart his knowledge and experience worldwide with his students in his village .He participated in an international long term training, a study program and attended various seminars and workshop in German speaking countries of Austria, Switzerland and Germany as well as in Nepal.But the most fascinating of all which Mr. Shah has explored is the knowledge about German language which according to him has an unbelievable similarity of diction with that of his native language of Brushaski.
Mr. Shah is fluent in German as he had spent more than 3 years living in Germany. For a one year long duration he lived in Munich to pursue a long term capacity building training in rural development which was offered in German language back in 2006-7.During this training he traveled to Switzerland and Austria and lived their for internship as part of the training program for a duration of one and half month in each country. “While working in a Nature Park as internee in the German speaking part of Switzerland I visited a high school in Sovognin village in county Grenzen were students got so amused to find German words in Brushaski when I introduced it as my mother tongue ; they finally requested to make a speech in Brushaski despite they could not understand it whole.” says Mujahid recalling his internship days in the county of Grenzen in Switzerland. “Now I regularly take an extra German language class after school timing for free of cost which is equally attended by students and my fellow teachers” ,”It boosts my confidence on one hand and keeps me still closer to Germany which is indeed next home to me after Pakistan” says Shah.
