  • Dr. Ali Bahadur Clinic, uzkmi wrote 10 months ago:
    Dr Ali Bahadur was such a graceful person with black beard and noorani face. He lived in the street opposite MB High School, past Shaikh Riaz's home. He was our family friend. His clinic was a block away from our family home and his house was 2-3 blocks away from us.. On July 21, 2014 I met his daughter-in-law in London. She was so happy to hear details of Dr. Ali Bahadur's family. Her hubby could not make it to my brother's house that day, however she said that they will be back again soon. I had a short visit to Hendon, London, UK to attend funeral services of my Bhabi, Dr. Anwer Jahan wife of my brother Lutfullah Khan. May Allah rest the souls of our deceased loved ones in peace in His neighboorhood, among His chosen people, Aameen! I love Okara and have many memories associated it. Our family owned agricultural lands and fruit orchards (Bagh) in the vicinity of Okara, in Gogera, in Karman Wala, and in Marula (North of Renala Khurd). Gogera used to be District Headquarters prior to Montgomery-Sahiwal during British Rule. I grew up in Lahore, but Okara was like a second home for us. In late 1970s, we moved to USA, and love it here, while my brother and sisters are still settled in Lahore.

Apne Jeene Ki Ada Bhi Anokhi Sab Se Apne Marne Ka Bhi Andaaz Nirala Hoga Ek Din Bik Jayega, Maati Ke Mol Jag Mein Reh Jayenge Pyare Tere Bol Dooje Ke Hothon Ko Dekar Apne Geet Koi Nishani Chhor, Phir Duniya Se Dol
