A renowned Pakistan novelist has written: “Lahore as a city inspires the art in all their forms.” I would say, GCU is that unique educational institution of Lahore which inspires the arts and all other kinds of creative activities in their best forms.
Let me admit upfront that Almighty Allah has bestowed upon me a great honour by affording me the opportunity to serve as President of the Old Ravians’ Union for the next two years. This opportunity will enable me to pay back to my alma mater atleast a fraction of what I have received from this greatest of the great educational institutions of the sub-continent.
