A Get-Together in Love & Nostalgia at ‘MILAN -22’ -an Alumni Bash of Father Muller Homoeopathic Medical College was a Total Extravaganza filled with Fun, Frolic, Music, Dance and Sumptuous Fellowship/Food held on Saturday, 17 September

Mangaluru: “Aji Aisaa Maukaa Phir Kahan Milegaa, Hamaare jaisaa dil kahaan milegaa, Aao tumako dikhalaataa hun, Derlakatte ki ek ragi shaam, Dekho dekho dekho dekho dekho, An evening in Deralakatte ….” and that was a bit of introduction from my side through an old Bollywood song adding a different twist to the original lyrics. The nostalgic Alumni Bash, over 200 plus alumni of Father Muller Homoeopathic Medical College converged at the FMHMC well-decorated hall on Saturday, 17 September 2022 for one of the largest, loudest and grooviest parties hosted by a bunch of alumni of FMHMC.

At Reunion or Get-Together of classmates, it’s always a history, where past memories are shared and cherished. Yes, reunions-they can be excitedly anticipated or painfully dreaded. Either way, the first hour or so can be awkward as classmates shuffle in from all over. Reunions/alumni get-togethers should include time for catching up and renewing old relationships. Getting past that awkward hour will get a little easier if there are lots of fun and easy reunion icebreaker games. And for that matter, the reunion or call it a get-together of a bunch of classmates who shared the same classroom or maybe shared the same benches or friends in college came together to have a social night out.

Yes, Class Reunions or Alumnae Get-Together are a chance to brag about what they may or may not have accomplished. In some, there is the fear of what has not been accomplished. And there are some that are just interested in how far people have come. There is also a chance to look at the humorous side of things. Spending time looking at the fashion and the hair in old photos, and is also a chance to look back at some of the stupid things that were done while being classmates. These alumni of FMHMC who had studied at their Alma mater got together after years to cherish the moments and fun that they had when they were students of this prestigious institution. They came from all over India, and a couple of them from abroad, including Dubai, just to share the reminiscences of their college fun days.

It was a nostalgic journey down memory lane for these classmates who came together for the Alumni ‘Milan-22’ Bash. The memoirs of yesteryears were once again rejuvenated as they all shared their memories of those olden, youthful, cheerful days full of happiness and joy. Yes, Life gives us brief moments, but sometimes in those brief moments, we get memories that last a lifetime. Back on its golden hinge, the gate of memory swings. Memories are the threads that hold together the patchwork of friendship

And for that matter, the Alumni association of FMHMC organized the most awaited nostalgic event-MILAN.22, and it was time to foster friendship and cherish the good times between the classmates/college mates. Among the alumni of FMHMC were the budding homoeopaths (interns) as they will pass on the legacy of Fr Muller as brand ambassadors of Homoeopathy worldwide.

The formal function ended with a mind-blowing cultural programme consisting of mesmerizing dances. music and songs by the Alumni, which brightened the spirits and lightened the moods of the revellers.
