Maqbool is my batch mate (1964-1969), and he
was one of the large contingent of boys who were
taken into the college in 1967 due to the
expansion caused by construction of Iqbal and
Qasim Houses. He spent his early years in Wah
Maqbool was always a very innovative and intuitive
of my batch mates. We always got along very well.
He was soft spoken and had a very good sense of
We didn't meet for nearly 3 decades, and then i
found him in Lahore in the late 1990s. He was such
an accomplished personality. He had gone off to
Sweden and obtained a Masters in Clinical
Psychology. His second achievement in Sweden was
to get married to MajBritt.
Back in Pakistan, Maqbool - now famous as Max
Babri - had made a name for himself. He was one of
the most sought after corporate training experts.
He operates his management consulting and training
company under the name of The Konsultants. He had
been teaching courses at LUMS as well.
The Petarians had the great fortune of benefiting
from his lectures too. He was invited by the
Petarian Foundation to conduct a one week training
program for all the CCP teachers at Islamabad
during the summer of 2004. It was an interactive
workshop, and had a great impact on the 50
teachers who came all the way from Petaro.
Golden Jubilee celebrations of the college,
Maqbool delivered a lecture on "Anger and Fear
Management" on 24th February 2007 at Petaro. The
lecture can be viewed online by clicking on the

Maqbool is always a
source of great love and friendship amongst us. It is an honour
for me to be the batch mate of Maqbool "Max" Babri.
