Patience is one of the greatest qualities, man can have. Ali is a model of patience and faith. He hadn't heard from his daughter,Miriam for some five years, yet he never failed to reach the post office to search for her letter, such was his patience. Every day the people at the post office used to taunt him endlessly. They called him mad and made him their laughing stock, but Ali with his immense patience managed to bear all their tantrums and stood firm with his determination. Till Ali's last day, he didn't get Miriam letter, but his patience did pay him. Three months after his death Miriam's letter came and was forwarded to his grave. Ali has set an example of unflattering patience in front of us.
