When it comes to the field of education in Pakistan Samir Hoodbhoy is a tall figure. He has provided valuable intellectual capital towards the building of BCCI FAST, the Usman Institute of Technology, and the Hamdard Institute of Information Technology. It is my understanding that in the 90s and beyond for many NEDians Samir Hoodbhoy's company Data Communication & Control (Private) Limited provided the stepping stone to a career in Electronics.
Samir Hoodbhoy was an OPEN (Organization of Pakistani Entrepreneurs and professionals) guest speaker on Thursday, September 23. Whereas, unfortunately, many of us wait too long to appreciate the work of a hero it was heartening to see around eighty people show up on a weekday to listen to Samir Hoodbhoy.
