    I graduated from the board exam from CMR in 1960 (1958-60). I lived in dorm in the school, as my parents lived in Army Stud Farm, Probinabad,10 miles further from Dilpalpur.I especially remember a young science teacher (I forgot his name), that helped launch me into world of science that ultimately resulted in degrees in engineering from Turkey. I'll remember his name if I saw his name ..Mohammed Ali Khan
