Dr. Muhammed Quddus, Reno Home Host

A group of South Asian delegates visited Reno in February under the auspices of the State Department program for International Visitors. While in Reno, they were hosted for dinner at the home of Dr. Muhammed Quddus. Mr. Quddus has this to say about hosting the delegates:

“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.”
