Quite awesome – thanks for sharing.
It was nice to see some of the younger classmen including my borther in law Akram Durrani.
I am somewhat envious as I have lost touch with most of my class of 67 fellows – but – powerful phenomenon this “Old Publican” thing.
Keep up the good work.

God Bless,
Aamir Majeed

Dear Ashraf,

Thanks for sharing the photos. I do feel left out. But I am so glad that Bhabi and you open your home to the Publicans to bring them together. I hope some others will also able to do the same and there will be more frequent gatherings.

I could not join via Skype because we were tied up that day with theKhawaja Aziz’s daughter’s art exhibition. I will forward you some photographs we took.

Uzma and I are hoping to arrange another get together later this year.

Keep up the good work and thanks.

KH,
Adil

Dear Honey and Ashraf,
I had all the plans to surprise you , by attending it , without informing you, but Nayyar being in Canada, told that it is not fair , that I am going alone leaving her.
I even missed on Skype due to business commitment.
Anyhow we are planning to be in Karachi for 2-3 days in second week of March 2012 and will definitely be in contact with you.

Best Regards
Nayyar and Mazhar

Dear Ashraf,
Thank you so much for the pictures, it was like I was there in person meeting all of my high school friends, some I recognized from the photographs, for some I had to read thier names, I would have loved to participate thru Skype but due to time difference, I couldn’t do so.
Thank you again for your tremendous work on behalf of Old Publicans, and being a life line for friends.
Your Friend Always.

dear ashraf/honey ,
thanks for excellent evening, it is always refreshing n nice to meet all of our old friends.
credit must be given to you for arranging it again. when i started our class of 1969 get together in 2001,for first time, at my home ,we were only 21 in number.
the credit surely goes to you , now i feel, above 50 of our class fellows are in contact,
may GOD bless you n your family for all you are doing for our class of 69 n school in particular.
i will be delighted, if you are given leading role in PAT,
as i feel you can do that in excellent way.
with regards from bushra n myself
