DJ. science college,Karachi

DJ. science collage,Karachi, originally uploaded by *Iqbal*.

Designed by James Strachan and considered this architect’s greatest achievement, the college was built between 1887 and 1893. Named after the Sindhi philanthropist Dayaram Jethmal, whose two family members contributed towards its cost, the building was constructed in the neoclassical, or ‘Italian architectural style’. A considerable amount of money was spent on the interior of the college; the floors comprised mosaic tiles imported from Belgium and the eight-foot wide main staircase was fitted with ornamental cast-iron work from McFarlane & Company of Glasgow. Karachi, once the capital of Pakistan, is now the capital of Sindh province and the major port and main commercial centre of the country. It was a strategically located small port at a protected natural harbour on the Arabian Sea north-west of the mouth of the Indus, and was developed and expanded by the British when they took over Sindh in the mid-19th century to serve the booming trade from the Punjab and the wheat and cotton regions of the sub-continent

  7. I graduated from DJ in 1960….ah..the remembrances…two Zuberis, one from Mahrera and the other from Meeruth were Physics Professors then….One Parsi gentleman was the Principal and a Parsi lady was the Chairman of Department of Microbiology..those were the most wonderful days… day Prince Phillip of England visited our college..what pomp and ceremony was then and he passed me a couple of feet away as he saw what we were doing in our Zoology class…all our professors were fantastic including D’Souza who later became Principal of college and then was disrepected in the athletic meet and instead of his disrespecters being punished, he was transferred as a demotion to Dadu…these are the reasons why we have retrogressed….we were great and we were full of hope but we did not learn to respect education and our great educators..I can continue forever…

    I graduated from D.J Science College. I studied for four yearsafter I passed my Matriculation My eldest sister and my eldest brother also grduated from D.J science college. I was a member of debating society. I remember I had my pictures in D.J college yearly magazine. But I never knew I shouLd have kept those magazines to show D.J Magazine to my children.
