People usually talk of life changing experiences they have in their lives, but what I had at Murray College, Sialkot, was truly a life-making experience.
The very name of this prestigious seat of learning unfolds to me an inexhaustible treasure of bitter-sweet memories spanning six precious years of my life from 1977 to 1982.

یادیں ۔۔۔۔ روح کی پگڈنڈی پر
قطرہ قطرہ ٹپکتی رہتی ہیں ؛
جیسے معبدوں کی نیم تاریک قربان گاہوں میں
! مقدس موم بتیوں سے موم گرا کرتی ہے
