"Every successful man must have behind him somewhere tremendous integrity, tremendous sincerity, and this is the cause of his signal success in life."-Swami Vivekananda.
On behalf of The Medical College Ex-Students' Association, Calcutta in its 83rd. Medical College Bengal Scientific Conference and Matiya Reunion 2017, I earnestly invite and welcome you everyone to actively participate, involve, opine & suggest for the upliftment of the overall performance and activities.
I must congratulate you for being the Patrons, Reception Committee Members, General Registered Members and the others, participating in the Grand Scientific Feast and the Great Cultural Bonanza & 183rd. Foundation Day Celebrations along with delicious and palatable food for Tea Party, Working Lunches & Grand Gala Dinner.
This is possibly for the first time, we’re felicitating all the Ex-Presidents and Ex-Secretaries of MCESA with special Appreciation Award. We're organising the National Seminar on Cadaveric Organ Transplantation on 28-01-17 at 2PM. H.E. the Governor of West Bengal will grace the conference as the Chief Guest.
We’re also holding the National Seminar on Update on Growth Hormone & an International Seminar on Immunology and Autoimmune Diseases. 83rd. The Medical College Bengal Scientific Conference will be inaugurated by Prof. Sukumar Mukherjee and the Secretary of Belur Ramkrishna Math & Mission will grace the occasion as Chief Guest on 29-01-17 at 2PM. My visions are to see this Medical College as THE MEDICAL COLLEGE BENGAL and my alma mater to be amongst the ten best Medical Colleges in India in the very near future. Several developmental activities have sprung up surrounding the alma mater like the MCH hub, SUPERSPECIALITY BUILDING, TRAUMA CARE CENTRE, BURN UNIT, STATE OF THE ART CANCER CENTRE, PUBLIC CORD BLOOD BANK & STEM CELL RESEARCH IN CALCUTTA SCHOOL OF TROPICAL MEDICINE during the last five years. Renovation of the LECTURE THEATRES, LIBRARY, AUDITORIUM, and different DEPARTMENTS with Recent Academic Research Facilities and Beautification, Water Reservoir, Modernised Vat, Water ATM & Refurbished Gates, etc. have already been materialised. At present The Medical College Bengal occupies the 16th. position amongst all the Medical Colleges in India.
Following are my visions and missions in the near future : -
Medical College Kolkata should be declared as Medical College Bengal as it’s nomenclature was before 1977.
Central Metro Station should be renamed as Medical College Station.
Medical College Bengal should have one separate second campus for the Superspecility facility, Research Centre, Playground, Multigym, Yoga, Meditation and Condolence centres.
It should be declared as the Central Institute of National Importance & Centre of Excellence.
It should become a Deemed University because it is the most prestigious premier Institute in Asian Continent.
It should come out with Cadaver Organ Transplantation, Robotic Surgery and recent developments of modern medicine like Genetic Engineering, Molecular Medicine and Stem Cell application for different incurable diseases.
There should be a Centre of International Video assisted Robotic Surgery, Telemedicine and Telesurgery.
It should come out as the topmost institution in the Nation.
According to the Bhagawad Gita,"Five factors of action are The place of action, The performer, The senses, The endeavour and Ultimately the super soul." "The faith are of three kinds - that in the mode of goodness, that in passion and that in ignorance ."
This is the best & right time to attend the 83rd. Medical College Bengal Scientific Conference and Matiya Reunion so that you can receive the real flavour from this Grand Scientific Feast and Palatable Dishes at the Tea & Dinner party on the 29th. & 31st. January 2017 respectively. I welcome you all for the registration and active participation in our Annual Gala Gathering. Laser Projections, Dynamic Website and Advancements in the Sound & Music & the overall Beautification are of special attraction this year.
To conclude, I must reiterate the expression of Swamiji, as he rightly said - "There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the Universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself. Burst your own cocoon and come out as the beautiful, as the free soul. Then alone you will see the truth."
I must thank you all for making the 83rd. Matiya Reunion, 2017 successful and congratulate you for helping me achieve my vision and mission as far as practicable. This is just the rolling of the stone from my part and the rest have to be achieved by all of us so that no moss can be gathered. I have full confidence that we shall overcome all the hurdles to achieve our goals in the near future. Needless to mention that if there is any grievance and unwarranted mistake from my end, please forgive and forget.
The mind goes haywire when he tries to think about himself making his journey from the nursery days of the South Point School to the present moment in his alma mater – a grand sojourn. It really becomes difficult to write down his thoughts because he gets lost into the ocean of events that have taken place in his life down the ages. The picture still remains vignette in his memory. THE MEDICAL COLLEGE BENGAL, his alma mater, is a pilgrimage to him as he was shown the first ray of the dawn by his mother in the then Mary Herbert ward of the famous Eden Hospital under the famous Dr. C. S. Dawn. After finishing the school, leaving the dreams of becoming a technocrat from the IIT campus Kharagpur in tatters, the boy was enrolled into this grand historic and heritage institution, the nursery of the glorious and illustrious luminaries of the modern allopathic medicine. The awe-struck experience was like that of landing at the “Disney Land”. At that time he was stunned by the gigantic pillars and the gothic architecture of the MCH building, but never dreamt of entering the prestigious The Medical College, Bengal. But when it did really happen he couldn’t believe himself – it was like a fantasy coming true !
Days rolled on, one day he passed out from this college and again one day he becomes the Secretary of The Medical College Ex-Students’ Association – another glorious chapter in his journey of life and that’s the Destiny !
But the reality has dawned on him. He feels proud and honoured and bows his head and seeks blessings from everyone as that’ll govern the chart of his pathway for the rest of his life. He still dreams of his alma mater - THE MEDICAL COLLEGE BENGAL - the pupils from his alma mater attaining the dizzy heights in all spheres of life. He prays to the Almighty that THE MEDICAL COLLEGE BENGAL remains at the glorious top.
This is your very own Abhijit, who pledges to serve you better down the line.
