Do you know what place this is? Can you recognize any or all of the buildings you see? And how is it important to Pakistan?

I suspect this ATP Quiz is either a little too easy. Or, maybe, not easy at all. I guess we shall find out soon enough.

    Off to the right, beyond the Iqbal Hostels are, as @Straw pointed out, are the new Quaid e Azam Hostels. It used to be a slope in the ground. And upon it was, what can be best described as a kachi abadi. GC maintenance staff used to live there.

    I assume, progress have moved them off the campus.

    On the other hand, progress have brought Iqbal and Jinnah together again.

    Come to think of it, I like it. No better way to infuse the expanse of Iqbal and the discipline of Jinnah.

    Is there another comparable pairing anywhere in Pakistan?

    an indoor pool

    Try as he may and as many times, we did not beleive him. The fact was that the swimming pool keeper did not keep the pool clean.

    His answer: pidgeons.

    Well, you see, the run down structure was an pool. The roof was of fluted metal, with ventilation zone running through the middle. And there were pigeon nests in those girders.

    He excuse to not to be able to get rid of them was that it needed repairs but to get up there was very “khatar-naq” as it might collapse, injuring workers.

    In fairness, he was right.

    But still, could he keep the pool cleaner by cleaning it more often and recycling the water? His was a shrug. A Yoda shrug.

    And pigeons did what they do.

    And we swam with the pidgeons.

    My dad and the entire clan of Bhatias of Empress Road were proud Ravians. I remember my mother saying that they would always read the college magazine when the boys brought it home. I would love read an article on my mothers school Sacred Heart. My email address is slakhi00@ gmail. com.Kind people wrote in to me after the article on Gujrat.

  5. Watan Aziz says:

    More often than not, when you meet a Ravian, you meet the whole clan. You discover that brothers, cousins, uncles and the grandfathers are also Ravians. And with co-ed, now the female side of the family too.

    It is the testament to the college long history, its academic excellence and the central role in the lives of so many.
