It is like a dream. Dr Atta has authored 843 publications on organic chemistry, including 663 research publications, 18 patents, 103 books and 59 contributing chapters in books. Wow and wow and still we are too busy honoring our Politicians and to revive their souls we forgot these people in Pakistan. But anyone Ever heard of any road, college, university or any place of repute on the names of Sceintists, engineers or authors in Pakistan???. Dr Abdus Salam is the only Noble prize winner of Pakistan and we never named a single university upon his name..Our roads , hospitals and colleges can only be named after the names of Our beloved politicians while we disregard everyone else and as a result we are being abandoned by the Developed world as well.
