1. SOUNDBITE (English) Malala Yousafzai, shot by the Taliban:

"Malala Day is not my day. Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights. The terrorists thought that they would change my aims and stop my ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born. So let us wage a global struggle against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism. Let us pick up, let us pick up our books and our pens, they are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution."
