It was a combination of modern technology, combined with traditional community partnership that made a wedding reception in Auckland memorable.
About 150 men, women and children gathered at the Banquet Hall of Stamford Plaza Hotel on January 23 to greet Dr Anwar Choudhary and his bride Rabia Zafar, who were married in Pakistan about a month earlier.
Among the select guests were Labour Party Leader Phil Goff, Labour MP Ross Robertson, Pakistan High Commissioner Syed Ibne Abbas and his wife Sadaf, businesspersons and members of the Pakistani and Indian communities.
It was a day of gratification for Anwar’s parents (Labour MP) Dr Ashraf Choudhary and Samina and as the former mentioned, “Nothing gives parents greater pleasure than seeing their children well settled in life.”
Dr Anwar is well on his way to mark his own milestones in life and career.
Following his qualifications in Medicine from Otago University almost six years ago, he undertook a number of medical assignments before being appointed Senior Medical Registrar. He is now in Australia for advanced training in Vascular Surgery at the Freemantle Hospital near Perth.
His bride Rabia is a graduate in Economics and an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, UK. She is keen in advancing her education and professional qualifications.
Rabia belongs to an illustrious family of achievers. Her father Zafar Gill is the Director General of Veterinary Research Institute of the Livestock Department of the Punjab Government in Pakistan.
Indian Newslink wishes Anwar and Rabia a happy and prosperous married life and a successful career in their chosen professions.
