Dr. Muhammed Quddus's Home Host Experience   "I thank NNIC for the opportunity to meet and greet some of the brightest legal minds of the Indian subcontinent countries. The best part was to get a feel for the unadulterated warmth of these exceptional human beings. Although I was born in Bangladesh, I never had the opportunity to visit these countries; this was my first instance of looking in the eyes of these native people, shake hands with them and identify with them. We truly enjoyed their company and I think they enjoyed ours." Dr. Muhammed Quddus (Dr. Quddus hosted a group of South Asian delegates for dinner at his home in Reno in February. The group was visiting under the auspices of the State Department program for International Visitors.)
