‘Meeting In Love & Nostalgia’ the Nostalgic ‘MILAN 2’ of Fr Muller Homoeopathy Medical College (F HMC ) Unleashed Memories

Mangaluru: Life gives us brief moments, But sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime, Back on its golden hinges, The gate of memory swings, Memories are the threads that hold together the patchwork of friendship. The Alumni Association of Father Muller Homoeopathy Medical College (FMHMC) took immense pleasure in organizing the most awaited nostalgic event- “MILAN 2” with the theme “Meeting In Love and Nostalgia”, a fun-n-frolic bash which took place at City Beach, Mangaluru during the weekend- where the revelers relieved their memories with the Mullerian family, and also felicitated the mentors and pillars of the Mullerian legacy, the founding teachers of Fr Muller’s. The celebration was indeed a time to foster their friendship and cherish the good times, and the celebration turned out to be an extraordinary “Mullerian Extravaganza!”

This FMHMC Alumni Association party showed people in their 70’s, 60’s ,50’s, 40’s-and most of all the crowd was predominately mixed, with young and old, gents and females, boys and girls, joined by a bevy of religious priests in their best attire in formal slacks and shirts, which was hard to distinguish between “Rev. Fathers” & “Mr. Fathers”- but what the heck, but nobody cared how you dressed, instead everyone had a jolly good time. Alumni get-together like this one can be excitedly anticipated or painfully dreaded. Either way, the first hour or so can be awkward as people shuffle in from all over. Such celebration should include time for catching up and renewing old relationships. Getting past that awkward hour will get a little easier, if there is lots of fun and easy ice breaker games. And for that matter, this nostalgic event “MILAN 2” was organized in such a way that everyone had a good time, it was not boring and there were no complaints. Well organized with lots of fun and frolic, especially kudos to the two comperes- Dr Deepa Rebello-Asst professor, Dept of Pathology, and Dr Jolly D’Mello- Asst Professor, Dept of Physiology, both at Father Muller’s, who simply rocked and kept the evening live and entertaining, with their professionalism and witty punchlines.

Alumni get-together are a chance to brag about what they may or may not of accomplished. Some there is the fear of what has not been accomplished. And there are some, that are just interested on 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 in the Institution. 27 October 2018 – It was a nostalgic journey down the memory lane for these Alumni of FMHMC who came together in large numbers for the ‘Milan 2’Bash. The memoirs of yester years were once again rejuvenated as they shared their memories of those olden, youthful, cheerful days full of happiness and joy. To enliven the atmosphere there was not only few dance performances by the Homoeopaths, but also Dj music which pulled the revelers on to the dance floors, swinging their hips to Bollywood and Western hits. The event saw lots of friendship cum fellowship, together with a sumptuous spread of food that added spice to the occasion. Mullerians indeed had fun to meet with each other, thereby interact and share their news and views over a glass of their favorite drink !

The celebration began welcoming the budding homoeopaths-the dear interns as they pass on the legacy of Father Muller as brand ambassadors of Homoeopathy worldwide. On this special occasion these interns were inducted into the Mullerian family, and were presented with a floral bouquet on the dais. Prayer the most powerful weapon against trials, and the most effective medicine against sickness, and the most valuable gift to mankind, the formal function began with invoking God’s blessings with a prayer by the Interns. Dr Girish Navada-president of the FMHMC alumni association welcomed the gathering. “Death brings pain that time can only heal, No words could ease what we truly feel, But with god the joy is eternally sealed, And cherish the memories, and that death cant even steal”- Dr Jameel Sait convenor of Milan -2 offered condolences for the dear departed alumni members and the former faculty.

To illuminate this vibrant evening –Milan2, the young and bubbly interns performed a fusion dance. “True leaders do not create followers, they create more leaders.
