One thought

  1. A super fast very intelligent thinker, Ali Velshi has a credible answer for any question you throw at him at any time. One of the brightest lights of the 2000-strong Keshavjee family the world over. He and Professor Shaf Keshavjee grew up in mid-town Toronto homes less than a mile from each other.
