George taught mathematics in the Aga Khan secondary school in Kampala, where 60% of the students were Asian. So, when the Indians were expelled by Idi Amin in 1972 all classes were cancelled. George never taught in this school again, but he met a good number of his old refugee's students later in Canada. He didn't give up and continued to teach in Botswana for one more year. Umeeda knew George and was a student at Aga Khan secondary school. This was quite a special reunion.
