Mohamed Amjad Chaudhry (1954 - 1957)

I was born in Eldoret, Kenya, educated at Park Road Primary (In Nairobi), Alidina Visram High (Mombasa) and Eastleigh Secondary in Nairobi. I left E.S.S in 1957 (Form 4a). After Cambridge Overseas School Certificate, I joined Duke of Gloucester School for Higher School Certificate and left for the UK in 1961 for higher education. I joined Edinburghh University in 1962 and completed my BSc in Civil Engineering in 1966. I worked for Edinburghh City Council's Department of Water for my training and obtained Membership of the Institute of Civil Engineers and Chartered Engineers status in 1968. From 1971 I worked in Zambia (Ministry of Overseas Development) and subsequently in Malta and Zimbabwe (Commonwealth Secretariat). I spent 16 years working overseas, training local graduates, before returning to Edinburghh and joined Regional Council until my retirement. I worked for 35 years in water engineering.

I am married to Naeem, also from Kenya, and live in Currie, Edinburghh. We have three children, a son (Doctor) and two daughters (a Textile Designer and a qualified solicitor), and two grand children. I played hockey and cricket at all schools. I miss Kenya and my friends whom I have not met since leaving Kenya. I visited Nairobi a few times but it is not the same place. I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Davinder Kumar Duggal, and more recently from Virender Seth and Nisar Butt. I am sure this reunion will be a rare opportunity for meeting old friends and making new.
