|Dr. Huma Ather.|
It is generally believed in our Pakistani society that working women do not have time for their children or their household. But Dr. Huma Athar is one great example that professional ladies turn out to be even better mothers and housewives, if they manage to keep a balance between their routines. As the name tells, Huma is a medical Doctor. Not just that but she is married to a doctor too, renowned pathologist Dr. Athar Hashmat. Also, her eldest daughter Yumna is a doctor in making. All her kids are scholarship holders and are capable enough of becoming doctors but her second one Aemun Athar selected a different field.
Huma remained extremely active, all her life, in Ladies Club Multan. Served there as 'program secretary' for many years. Not to forget her mother, Mrs. Naseem Raheen, who was among the pioneer members of the club, also'secretary' of the same club. In short, Huma has inherited this habit to become an all rounder from her mother and now the same genes are being transferred to her children.
Huma is currently teaching 'sports medicine', in the department of Social Sciences and Anatomy in department of Pharmacy, Bahauddin Zakria university, Multan. She is also a private practitioner and runs her own medical clinic in the evening.
On 18th April, Huma hosted a lunch in Shangrilla Chinese, Multan cantt. It was actually her turn to host a party in the committee which is run by her sister in law, Mrs. Farah Saqib. So she decided to invite all her friends to the party. She went on to check availability of her friends and managed to arrange it on a date, when everybody was around. The great turn-over spoke of her efforts. Busy educationists like Saiqa Imtiaz, Sarrah Bilal, Aroona Shabbir, Erum Mujahid and Rabia Khand did manage to attend the occasion. Also Fariha Munir Shah was there, all the way from Lahore.
Everybody enjoyed a hearty chit chat over delicious Chinese cuisine. The event turned out to be more of a reunion, with many friends coming together. Indeed a splendid effort. Thanks a lot Huma for your wonderful hospitality. We look forward to more from you in future, God bless you.
