After completing my High School from I.M.Inter College in Amroha in 1955 and BSc from the Aligarh Muslim University in 1959 I went to Australia to study geology in 1960.After completing couple of degrees I immigrated to Canada to undertake a Masters degree in geology.
I got involved in charity work as a volunteer in 1970 because of a cyclone in Bangladesh.
I returned to Australia in 1971 to work as an engineering geologist.
I continued my charity work as a volunteer till 1987 when I was invited to take a job as CEO of a major charity.
My charity worked continued till 2001 when I retired to undertake the AIS project which had been my dream.
