Aligarh : Eighty students from the MBBS 1997 batch of the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) basked in that nostalgic delight with excitement and contentment and revisited happy times as they gathered to relive old memories and forge new ties, 25 years after they first donned the white coats to begin their MBBS course.

The Alumni batch was celebrating ‘Deluge-2022’, their Silver Jubilee reunion at JNMC.

Speaking to the alumni batch students, AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof Tariq Mansoor said: “Teachers and parents celebrate your success. They correlate to your achievements as they have spent a lifetime instilling hope, igniting imagination and kindling a love for learning in you”.

“It gives me immense pleasure to see that the MBBS 1997 batch students, who now work as very successful health workers across the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Kingdom of Saudia Arabia, United Arab Emirates and various parts of the Country have taken time from their busy schedules to reach here for this re-union. As ambassadors, benefactors, volunteers and industry partners, our alumni have played a very important role in the success of this university and we feel proud of your achievements’ ‘, he emphasised.

Prof Mansoor added: “I am confident that the celebrations will be a resounding success and will rejuvenate the spirits of all the batch mates. These reunions come with the opportunity for alumni to meet and interact and reminisce about the days when they were students”.

The Vice Chancellor also spoke about the new courses and new infrastructure at their alma mater and how the JNMC continues to provide affordable health care to all sections of the society.

“This alumni reunion has not only brought the MBBS 1997 batch students to meet each other after so many years, it is also an opportunity for them to see the various changes through which their alma mater has gone through over the past years. We have strong hopes that this occasion will further strengthen the bond of 1997 batch students with the university and the medical college”, said Prof M U Rabbani (Dean, Faculty of Medicine).

Prof Rakesh Bhargava (Principal, JNMC) pointed out: “It is a very different feeling to recap your student days and to share experience and expertise. I am sure the alumni gathered for this event are keen on paying back their alma mater by providing the necessary guidance and mentorship to the current students who look up to their achievements”.

“Getting to meet old friends is a blessing. These memories will always be with us”, said Dr Nitin Varshney (Consultant, K K Hospital, Aligarh) in the welcome address.

Dr Atika Javed Siddiqui (Department of Ophthalmology, JNMC) extended the vote of thanks and called for ending the event with a solemn promise to meet again and for further renewing bonds of friendship.

MBBS 1997 batch students, Dr Zergham Zia (Chairman of Radiology, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre) and Aiman Haider conducted the programme.
