It was probably late eighties, and I hadn’t formally joined journalism. I remember one summer evening, when I entered the Press Club (Quetta old building) I saw a clean-shaven person with grey hair was sitting in the hall. I enquired about him and was told he is a senior journalist from Karachi and associated with an esteemed English newspaper daily, Dawn. I was the reader of the daily Dawn. At the time, I was learning English and making news stories. I was impressed by his profile and his skills, which is why I wanted to spend time with him to get some guidelines to improve my skills.
