  5. Lt Col [R] Zafar Mustafa (Abdali Coy Comd) says:

    All of us have to leave this temporary abode at the appointed time but the memories of some are treasured more lovingly. We stayed together for 3 years in PMA but I never saw Sarosh picking up a row with any colleague or trying to harm anyone. He was a symbol of smiling cooperation and cheerful disposition towards all and sundry. I found GCs looking up to him as a role model of military bearing.
    Only people close to him would know of his hospitality and affection towards his friends.
    Allow me to narrate just two incidents of his caring nature ——- In 1993, I sent my wife to Boston to cheer up my younger son who was feeling home-sick having just joined the University. On her return via New York, she rang up Mrs. Sarosh to say hello. Sarosh
    came on the line and insisted that they would pick her up from the airport and then drop her for the onward journey. Despite my wife’s plea not to bother, she was received by them, taken to their home, entertained with a sumptuous lunch, given a shirt for me and dropped back at the airport.
    Then in 1997, when we held a reception in New York after my elder son’s waleema at Karachi, Sarosh attended the function with his family despite the fact that they were winding up in NY and about to move to Canada. On top of this, they brought the costliest gift for the newly-weds.
    Despite a couple of angio-plastries and by-pass surgeries, Sarosh maintained his sense of subtle humour. Once on learning that he had been very sick, I spoke to him on line and routinely asked him how he was keeping himself busy. He answered that he was working as a Supervisor. Surprised, I asked him “where” ? He replied “My wife, son and daughter are working, so I act as a supervisor dropping them on the train and then bringing them back home”.
    The Most Merciful Allah, I beg you to grant Sarosh Ghani the choicest place in jannah and help his bereaved family overcome their grief. Aameen!!!

  16. Lt Col Javaid Kamal says:

    His voice, while practicing at night of Passing Out Parade Cautions, still echoed in my memory. Ghauri-4 Barrack was the closet to Officers’ Mess, so most of us had the honour to listen to that voice almost daily, close to Our Passing Out Parade. What a handsome and graceful Adjt 3rd Pak Bn had.
    May ALLAH ALMIGHTY forgive and grant him the best place in JANNAH and patience to the family to bear this loss. AMEEN.

    Col Sarosh Ghani was an inspiring figure and a role model for all cadets, his deep voice carrying across the length and breadth of PMA while on horseback, flourishing his sword. What a role model. May he rest in peace. May his family, with the Grace of the Almighty, also find peace in their wounded hearts.

  29. Lt Col Rashid Zia Cheema (ABD-1) says:

    A few minutes back I rang up at Col Sarosh Ghani’s home in Canada to inquire about his health. His daughter-in-law picked up the phone and informed about the sad news of his death. The news was very shocking. He was a thorough gentleman. May Allah bless him the choicest place in Jannah, Aameen.
