When the film awards season came around in early 2012, Gulshan Devaiah found himself surprisingly ill at ease. The new actor s performance in his 2011 releases That Girl in Yellow Boots, Dum Maaro Dum and Shaitan had, after all, made him a contender for a best debutant award. But at high profile gatherings, out of the protective shadow of the characters he played, he would be nervous and sweating buckets . He found himself squirming during the nomination parties; he was awkward on the red carpet and terrible at small talk.

After working in Atlanta for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) I moved back to Pakistan to set up a US CDC and Government of Pakistan collaborative programme, Pakistan Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP). FELTP offices were set up at the Pakistan Institute of Health (NIH). For the next 12 years, I was able to learn about its history, founders and challenges. I was awe struck with its founder ''s grand vision as it aligned very much close to US CDC ''s. They envisioned it to be a top health institute of not only Pakistan but of the region. In the 60s, when NIH was founded, no one wanted to live in Islamabad. And Chak Shahzad where NIH is located was a jungle away from Islamabad. Founders built housing facilities for its employees, a small market, and arranged transport for the employee ''s children to go to school. Then the best scientific minds were selected from across Pakistan and NIH reached its zenith. In scientific journals of the past era you will find references from NIH.The National Agriculture and Research Council (NARC) has the same history. In the coming years, successive governments lost interest in both NIH and NARC. In one instance a fully qualified professional was kept as an ”acting ” Executive Director of NIH for over six years. That showed the governments ' non serious attitude to a critical Pakistani institute. But both NIH and NARC have a curse. They also own hundreds of acres of land for their future expansions as was envisioned by their founders but is now valued in billions.
