My Professional Life Experience: A Continuously Rising Learning Curve
Born in present Pakistan (on 12 December, 1934), I was in 8th class when Pakistan was formed. Due to the travails of the partition, our family suffered heavy loss of life (I lost my father and three small brothers), but somehow my education continued and in 1952 I joined Punjab Engineering College, then running as a guest institution at Roorkee (it shifted to Chandigarh in 1954) and my degree in Civil Engineering (then designated as B.Sc (Hons.) in 1955. I had topped in the Punjab University in both the Intermediate and the Engineering Degree examinations.
