Annual Dinner at IBA Boys' Hostel
The alumni reunion / farewell dinner for the graduating class of 2015 was held on Saturday, 6th June 2015. The event began with the recitation of the Holy Quran by Hafiz Waqar Ahmed which was followed by a brief introduction of the event by Muneeb Bin Hafeez, the MoC for the event. The event was attended by senior alumni including Mr. Inayat Din, Mr. Humayun Ansari, Mr. Mirza Sardar Hussain, Mr. Agha Tariq, Mr. Malik Imran, Mr. Kirshan Vaswani and Mr. Mustafa Ramzan, to mention a few of the distinguished alumni attendees. Mr. Inayat Din, former Registrar, IBA and senior most hostelite in the gathering was kind enough to share his experiences with the audience. Afterwards, Dr. Ishrat Husain, Dean and Director, IBA Karachi spoke to the outgoing class and advised them for the challenges that lay before them in their lives and also to work to promote a spirit of camaraderie amongst alumni especially to provide guidance and support for younger alumni.
With the speeches over dinner was served and the event was formally concluded with distribution of plaques as tokens for graduating hostelites and titles for all residents. Some outstanding hostel staff were also feted amongst them Zakir lala and Tnavir Bhai. This was followed by an informal ice breaking session between the alumni and the students in which anecdotes were shared and the night was colored with laughter and merriment. The students learnt a lot and left with the impressions and experiences of their seniors to help them in their lives. The alumni, on the other hand, left with fond memories and a sense of nostalgia from their own time at the institution that is called the 'IBA Boys Hostel'….. Home away from home.
We are deeply indebted to Mr Mujahid Hussain Detho, Warden IBA Boys Hostel, Mr Jami Moiz, Superintendent, IBA Boys Hostel and Capt Ahmed Zaheer, Registrar, IBA and last but not least, our Dean and Director, Dr Ishrat Husain for facilitating our comfortable stay at the hostel.
