DINNER with visitors Shahbaz Malik and Khalid Ranjhani at London – 7 July 2011

It was a wonderful evening despite the struggle to meet on a working day. Most of Petarians could not make it.

After a nice dinner we all went for a walk along river Thames and Qaisar Bhai hunted down a coffee shop which was open late. The gathering was typical Petarian gathering with lots of jokes and remembering our beloved teachers and brothers like Kazi Bhai, Ikram Ghani Bhai, Kamal Bhai, Mansoor Qureshi and Baweja Bhai.

We also spoke with Aurangzeb Bhai over the phone in Saudi Arabia and he blessed us with his kind words.

He asked me over the phone “how many are you?”

I said “Ten”

Aurangzeb Bhai said “Tum Das nahi Ek Hazaar ho”

My heart grew so big that I felt like the luckiest person in this world for being part of this family and brotherhood.
