Absar was diagnosed with terminal Leukemia at the age of three, but recovered from it years later. His sickness led to a sincere appreciation of life, a sensitive connection to the natural world, and a love for exploration and adventure. After qualifying for and practicing law in England for a decade, Absar felt that the corporate world had damaged his vibrant childhood personality.
He left his career and moved to Pakistan in a journey of self-rediscovery. As he explored his home country, he searched for inner peace and passion, and found them both in nature.
