Sad news indeed.  Bhagwant was my classmate and a dear friend. 

I remember spending a day with her in New York City planning our alumni association meeting at the Hilton many years ago.  She was so full of energy, and as we walked down an avenue in the city she  walked at such a fast pace that I had a tough time keeping up with her.  “Slow down Bhagwant” I said  “What’s the rush”   Sweet memories   I last met her at our class 50th reunion at CMC in 2010.  We had a delightful day together.  I will miss her.

Dear Friends

Happy New Year.

Hope you all had a wonderful and blessed holiday season, and now you are entering another year with new hopes and resolutions. May your New year be filled with blessings and may you find the strength to see through your resolutions.
  For me , it is another year to serve you and our Alma mater , as the president of the Alumni association. The association is only as good as its members, and hence it is my hope that more of us will get actively involved in the association. As a starter, please join the organization, either as annual or lifetime member. Secondly, try to stay connected, through the web or by email.

Our Annual meeting is planned for July 24 to 27, in Los Angeles. The details of registration will be given to you in February. Please save the dates. We are planning it during the summer holidays to encourage younger alumni participation, and I hope we will have a great turn out. I really would like to make it a fun event, and any suggestion is welcome.

    The mission of our organization remainsthe continued connectivity of the CMC Family and the promotion of good will towards our parent institution and towards each other .  The College and hospital, are progressing well,being ranked in the top 10 in the nation, with cutting edge technology( in some departments) and clinical and basic resaerch to match other institutions,, But more than anything else, it  is our medical staff's commitment that has gained us the top 10 rank Thanks to Dr Abraham Thomas and his team.

There are so many areas that still need modernization mostly because of lack of financial support.and that is where we can be of help.
The one project that we the alumni are involved is the Benevolent Fund, to contribute to the financially burdened retired professors. one may contribute any amount to that fund any time. It is really an honourable and humanitarian cause.
  Once again I wish you all a wonderful new year and hope to see you in LA

With warmest regards

Elizabeth Paul M.D
