It has been a decade since I have seen brainstorm evolve.
From 2002 where i spent sleepless nights with many of my batch mates checking those mcq exams with Gubakshish Singh (98 batch)to a phase where we started involving the private education institutes for conducting exams 2001 batch to a phase where brainstorm evolved into a multi city event .The success and growth of Brainstorm has been tremendous and reflects the commitment of GMCH students to Euphoria .
Looking at the history of brainstorm which is now into 15th year; mock test,exhibition and counselling are a part of the event nowadays The term used for the composite event which is spread over 5 days is “Integrated Health Education”.The event now has about 4000 participants and this year covered over 20 cities .
This year I again got an opportunity to be a part of the brainstorm and held an interactive session with over 400 students on “Adolescence-A big challenge,A big change”.
The organizers had done a great job and kudos to the Euporic spirit that drives this event on…………..

“YOU MAKE FRIENDS IN MBBS AND COLLEAGUES REST OF YOUR LIFE ”
These were words in which Dr Navneet Majhail summed the wonderful years of MBBS course and how much he misses his campus days.
I got an opportunity to meet our most famous senior and pioneer of GMCCOSA who has literally connected everyone from GMCH right from 91 batch to 2009 batch.
He held a talk on USMLE this evening at GMCH Sarai building and guided students on various aspects of it.
It was a great opportunity to meet the man behind the GMCCOSA and i did make most of it like many of my friends from various batches.
Well the talk was immensely helpful on the kinds of problems one faces in USMLE, monetary constraints and visa issues in the process .
DRK(Divyanshu) had prepared an exhaustive presentation and Dr Majhail presented with excerpts from his vast experience of the same.
And best part was queries after the session which ranged from different perspectives from second year medicine grad to post MBBS graduates.
He probably answered every query in the room along with inputs from DRK ,Dushyant 2k4,Akash 2k4 and other recent takers in audience on the recent trends and session did stretch about 3 long hours.
It was really great on his part to come to campus and address students on career issues and help them making decisions .
He probably lent an ear to everyone in room and personally answered each of their queries which probably required tremendous amount of patience on his part.
“KIDA “was word with which he described his passion for GMCCOSA and his work for same
I express my gratitude to contributors at GMCCOSA and Dr Majhail ,DRK and Anuj 2k7 for the wonderful talk and enlightening the GMCH students.
“A life isn’t significant
except for its impact on other lives.”
