The Bar Room - Sindh High Court Bar Association, Karachi

It was a great honour to have been invited into the Bar Room of the Sindh High Court Karachi earlier today.  Upon entering the Bar Room there is a huge plack listing past and present presidents and secretaries of the Sindh High Court Bar Association.  There were many familiar names amongst whom were Barrister Hassan Ally A Rahman and his younger brother Barrister Tufail A Rahman who also served as Chief Justice for Sindh and Balochistan, and also presided upon the the Hamidurrahman commission post East Pakistans succession from West Pakistan.

It was an awe inspiring moment to walk the halls of the Sindh High Court,  step in to the Bar Room where normally only advocates of the court are allowed to enter. This room has been witness to history as it unfolded way before the formation of Pakistan. Then to read the names of my maternal grandfathers on the plack further brought the whole experiece home.
