The NED69ers Group graduated in 1969 from the NED Government Engineering College Karachi. Members are spread all over the globe. They maintain a connection with each other through e-mails and meet occasionally in Karachi or other parts of the world just to refresh their sweet, old memories.
Engr. Asadullah Kazmi-Ex-Saudi Aramco of Ras Tanura, after retiring from Saudi Aramco, went back to the United States and since then he is settled there. He is staying in Maryland along with his wife Uzma Kazmi. The couple decided to visit Toronto, Canada, and visit a few friends and relatives, so they called Engr. Aftab Ahmad Alavi and informed him that they wanted to visit him while they are in Canada.
There has not been a reunion of NED69ers for quite some time. Aftab was successful in turning this opportunity into a small mini-reunion of NED69es and their spouses over dinner and in doing so had the joy of a very interesting gupshup after almost three years of very gloomy Covid seclusion.
