My ideal teacher, Dr. Nabi Bakhsh Khan Baloch, reflects the traditional Islamic pattern of "simple-living and high thinking". He puts his thoughts into practice and digs deep into knowledge which he proliferates through his lectures, addresses and writings.

During , he taught us Anthropology. He entered the class room at the exact minute and did not leave a minute before time. All the time, he lectured according to the outlines prepared by him, and used the blackboard like a school teacher. We were required to note down the points and further study the relevant books in the seminar-library. He would not even let us heave a copy of his outlines; rather he stopped the supply of last years question papers which helped students cram answers accordingly.

His life style is simple, super and salutary, all the three aspects combined into an unassumingly stern and active personality called Dr. Oliver Goldsmith described his village school master as: "A man he was stern to view, I knew him well, And every truant knew.

One evening I saw cots laid outside Dr. Baloch's residence a 3 room quarter. I asked my name-sake, Habibullah, who was Dr. He told me that besides an office clerk and a student who cannot afford lodging and boarding hostel and live permanently with Dr. Baloch's family.

Artisans and artists who came to Hyderabad to perform on Radio Pakistan or come on personal errands, also stay here and partake rice and pulses which Dr. Baloch can afford to offer them.

The hogdeer was donated to the municipal garden, where Dr. Baloch sometime went to meet her.

V for the National Geographic documentaries, the animal world and wrestling. He is free with his family members and plays with his children, now grand children, chess, cards and every other in-door game. Those days, I smoked pattay-ji-beeri but I did not know then that my ideal teacher also did the same.

He was never seen smoking and nobody would believe that he could ever. As I know now, he went on with cigarettes, trying the finest and the cheapest brands, to K-2, then cigars and finally the pipe, and then he gave up smoking after a heart by-pass in Islamabad due to incessant heavy work.

He was used to stimulation by tea taking and smoking. He has since given up the usual stimulation but not his life long work habit. He may be unkindly described as a penny pincher but honestly speaking he is not a miser.


He spends where necessary but wisely. He saves prudently and manages economically. In , Dr.

He has had many such sittings in his research galore, through the length and breadth of Sind, and has collected much more material on the culture and literature of Sindh than has been published so for. The contribution For me it is difficult to circumscribe the contribution of Dr. Baloch towards the renaissance of Sindh, revival of its educational tradition and enriching the world of knowledge.

He is a prolific writer with over published books and a lot unpublished. He has done orignal research on the life and poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai 10 volumes as well as compiled.
