Our family before the war.

This picture was taken in 1965 outside our home which we eventually had to abandon.
Our family moved from Hyderabad Deccan to Adamjee Nagar outside Dhaka in East Pakistan. My father was a manager at Adamjee Jute Mills which eventually became the largest jute mill in the world. I was born and raised in this house and still have many fond memories of this house, the games we used to play and the friends and family who visited this beautiful house. In this picture you can see my father and mother Mr. Khawaja Qumaruddin & Mrs. Fatima Qureshy-Qumaruddin, my older brother Khawaja Nizamuddin and my older sister Nafisa Tahera. I am the youngest.
