Nadim is my batch mate (1964-1969), and was one of
the smallest boys in our class. He was known for
being the rider of Topaz, the smallest horse at
Petaro. Thus, Nadim and Topaz became synonymous.
In our final year, Nadim was appointed the College
Captain for Riding.
After passing out from Petaro, Nadim joined NED
Engineering College, and graduated as a Civil
Engineer in 1974.
During his engineering career, he worked in
Pakistan, Iran, Nigeria and UAE. He thus has
acquired proficiency in a number of languages
including German, French, Farsi and Arabic.
During the mid-1990s, he became the Chief Engineer
for KMC and was instrumental in putting together
the road network plan for Karachi and for setting
standards for construction. He also had a number
of major roads (including Shaheed-e-Millat Road)
re-carpeted with highest of standards.
For the last several years, he has been running
his own company under the name of NAA Consulting
Engineers. He is the Chief Executive.
Nadim has served the Petarian Association,
Karachi for several years on different Managing
Committees. He has held the posts of
Elected Member and Joint Secretary Publications.
It is an honour for
me to be the batch mate of Nadim Ahmad Ansari
