I have many friends scattered across the length and breadth of the planet. Some of them have created their own personal websites but most, unfortunately, for whatever reason, have chosen not to do so. The few I know that have are included below along with a brief description of my relationship with them for your information. Just click on the images to be taken to their websites. Please do take the time and opportunity to visit them and leave your comments in their guest books or eMail box. I appreciate your cooperation. Thanks!


I became acquainted with Herbert Lichtinger on a study trip to the Belgium capital Brussels late in 2000. The study visit was organized and funded by the Hanns-Seidel Foundation which, if you visited the section my professional career on this website, you will be aware were my employers for almost four years in Pakistan. A nice, witty and intelligent person, Herbert Lichtinger is presently working towards his PhD, and is based at the University of Applied Sciences in Deggendorf, Germany. I look forward to working closely with him in future.

Markus Hoffmann is a very talented young free-lance photographer from Darmstadt, Germany. I know Markus since early 2001 when we met at a five-day beginners workshop on adobe photoshop in Darmstadt. Markus and I worked together on one PC and I benefitted considerably from his insight into this incredible programme. Since then we have met several times. Markus Hoffmann works at a clinic in Darmstadt. Check out his website and see his gorgeous artistic photo galleries.

Muhammad Laeeq Khan is a ex-colleague and a very good friend of mine. A highly talented and lively young man with international experience, Laeeq is wholeheartedly dedicated to the teaching profession. When he was my colleague at the COMSATS Institute of Information Technology in Islamabad he commanded, within a short time, the highest respect both of his students and his colleagues in the department of management sciences. In January 2007, Laeeq joined the Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) in Islamabad as an Assistant Professor.  

He is also something of a whiz at web designing, having created a few very professional-loooking websites himself. Laeeq, we're waiting for you to now upgrade your own personal website!


Raashid Mohsin is an old and close friend of mine since 1976 when we were in the same junior secondary school class at the Islamabad College for Boys. Raashid has travelled extensively across the globe and he shares his HUGE collection of photos shot in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, New Zealand, Singapore, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and India. Be assured - you're missing something if you don't check out Raashid's photo galleries!
