REPORT OF THE RE-UNION
The Annual Re-Union was held - as usual - from 29th to 31st January 2003. The Re-Union President was Dr. Amar De who so gracefully took us down memory lane with a few anecdotes here and there. We are grateful of him.
The Tea Party on 29th was a smashing success filled with melody from the synthesizer of Mahashweta Gupta. our student. Kudos to social and Entertainment Secretary Dr. Chandan Kumar Sen and the Asstt. Secretary
Dr. Dipanjan Bandyopadhyay.
Shri Atin Bandyopadhyay, the famous author, inaugurated the ReUnion Exhibition where the central theme was "Buildings of Medical College". Dr. Mirza Asraful Alam & others captured grandeur of the majestic buildings and their present day transformation for hi-tec system - a fantastic visual delight. And it was capped by a beautiful Audio Visual presentation - a lanour of love by Dr. Suparna Ganguly and her team. All these happened tinder care of Exhibition Sub-Committee with Dr. Sarmishtha Bandyopadhyay as Secretary and her associates.
The Re-Union Souvenir was released by our Chairperson Dr. (Mrs.) Jayshree Mitra (Ghosh) and the Scientific Session inaugurated by Dr. C. S. Dawn. The Sessions were very contemporary, lively and enjoyed by both the young and not so young participants.
Dr. M. N. De Memorial Oration was delivered by Dr. Bidyut K. Mallick, Dr. Dhanapati Panja Memorial Oration by Dr. Panchanan Moulik and Dr. Sreemanta Banerjea Memorial Oration was delivered by Dr. Sunil K. Addy. In addition to these orations, a new Dr. (Brig.) Rasamay Ganguly Memorial Oration was delivered by Brig. (Dr.) N. Roy has been started this year. Dr. Supratik Sanatani and Dr. Amitava Chakraborty - the Secretary and Asstt. Secretary of the Scientific Sub Committee worked very hard to run the programme and run it on schdule. Congratulations to them.
Our Drama Secretary Dr. Mamtaz Sanghamita and Asstt. Secretary Dr. Rajesh Das also deserve congratulations. They worked hard for a long time to make the evening more enjoyable - and they succeeded. Our present students also took part in the programmes en-masse resulting in "House Full" performances.
After the valedictory function there was a mixed cultural programme - a drama by past students, our very own "band" of present students and dance numbers were enjoyed by all.
The Reunion ended with our College Anthem. The Social & Entertainment sub-committee arranged a gala dinner on 31st January.
Instead of the customary Banquet, we had another evening of variety performance on the same stage - rather as a post scripts performance by Dr. Sankar Nath - our two ex-students and two professional groups were acclaimed with cheers.
In addition to organising the Annual Re-union, we conducted two scientific programmes -
a) Cardio Diabetic Care (Panel Discussion on 28-09-2002) b) HIV/AIDS : Current Status (CME on 20-06-2003)
Our eminent alumni discussed different aspects of the problems and there were interesting interactive sessions. Congratulations to Dr. Binay K. Saha and Dr.Dipanjan Bandyopadhyay for organising these enlightening sessions.
A HUMBLE SUBMISSION
We are very sorry- as because we could not generate enough funds for whatever we had hoped to do.. That again was due to the simple fact that vast majority of our ex-students do not and did not come forward with their active suggestions and help. Whatever could be done was possible only because of untiring efforts of handful of them and some present students. My sincere gratitude and thanks to them. But unless all of you spend a few moments from your valuable buoy schedule for the cause of your very own alma mater and the MCESA, improving the over-all performance would be practically impossible.
I am thankful to our Chairperson Dr. (Mrs.) Jayshree Mitra (Ghosh) who gave her valuable guidance throughout & helped us whenever needed. Dr. Kusur. Kumar Adhikari, Suptd. of MCH, Dr. A. N. Biswas, Dept. Suptd., MCH and Mr. Manindranath Chakraborty, College Secretary helped us in many ways. I am very much thankful to Calcutta Medical College Ex-Students' Association (U.K.), Dr. P. S. Gupta, President MCESA, who in spite of his ill-health has done a wonderful job, President Elect Dr. Dhiraj Chaudhury Hony. Jt. Secretary, Dr. Subrata Goswami, Treasurer Dr. Binay K. Saha, Asstt. Secretary Dr. Sumon Mukherjee, and all the Executive Committee members, all reunion Committee members, President and other members of MCSU, The College office Staff, the Police Out post, the Decorators, all Advertisers, all Sponsors, M/s. H. Mukherjee & Banerjee Surgical Pvt. Ltd., Lastly I am thankful to all well wishers who helped us directly or indirectly.
We sincerely remember the perfect office keeping of our beloved Indubabu, Office Secretary, throughout the year, with very able assistance of Shri Probir Banerjee, Office Assistant. Shri Arabinda Das, Office Peon - also need to be complimented.
Best wishes to all
Long live our Alma Mater.
Long live MCESA.
Dr. (Ms.) Sudipta Mukherjee Hony. Secretary
