Introduction Profile Born and raised in various provinces of Afghanistan until the age of 26, I graduated with a degree of civil engineering from Kabul University (School of Engineering was affiliated to University of Wyoming at Laramie) in 1968. I then won a Fulbright scholarship and studied English and American Orientation at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and structural engineering in University of Wyoming in 1968/69. After a while, after travelling through Germany, Austria, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran by road in an Opel Rekord settled back in Afghanistan and married an English girl. I then travelled to London and studied environmental/public health engineering at Imperial College, University of London with a scholarship from WHO/government of Afghanistan. The coup de tat of 1973 deposed King Zahir Shah, and I became s refugee. My family of 3 by now and I saw no choice but to settle in England with protection by the British police against threats by the Afghan embassy to kidnap and ‘repatriate’ us to Kabul to resume my post as a WHO fellow and the director of rural water supplies at the Ministry of Health... No more can be fitted in.
