I was the one holding the stick, Blue collared T-Shirt. This was when I was doing my Forestry Training. We visited a pine plantation managed by the forestry Department as part of a plan to quickly reestablish back Forestry timber stock after a Forestry Department report on the dwindling of log supplies from the natural forest. Our trip was a comparison between the Natural Rain Forest as compared to a man-made plantation. I still pass this area quite often. The forest is no longer there as it had been given out to urbanisation.

Yes, our old photos bring pleasant memories of our youth and the many friends that were part of our life and the activities we did then. 

Those are memories we should keep, and it is amazing you can still recall the names of your batch mates in college decades ago, and their last professions. You must have maintained contacts with them till the end. 

Nice sharing Awal, I love stories of old times too.
