Thank you very much for your book “Plight of a Medical Editor” an autobiography you sent to me a few days ago. I have gone through part of it and found it outstandingly interesting. Your autobiography is comprehensive and elaborate. It reflects your hard work over the years you have spent with the medical profession. I regularly receive your fortnightly PULSE.

Your “Off the Record” column has been thought provoking and based on facts. This is good for those in the medical profession who crosses the boundaries of ethical medical practice while practicing this noble profession. I once again congratulate you for such an effort and pray for your long and healthy life to carry out the good work for the medical profession for the years to come.

 Workshops on Medical Writing

It was so delightful to know that PAME in collaboration with Heath RAB organized workshops on Medical Writing at Khawaja Mohammad Safdar Medical College, Sialkot on September 7, 2015 and at Avicenna Medical College, Lahore on September 8, 2015. It was a wonderful initiative and would lead our faculty to do quality research and publication. May I request you to continue this exercise in other Medical Institutions of Punjab. The logistic facilities will be provided by UHS, Lahore.

 Baat Niklee Tou Her Baat Pai Rona Aaya

I read the obituary note on late Prof. Khalid Durrani the noted Plastic Surgeon, Prof. of Plastic Surgery at Dow Medical College, written by Prof. Ashraf Ganatra, published in Pulse International of August 15th 2015, Karachi with a great grief.

He was very soft spoken person. Whenever I used to meet him during medical and surgical conferences I used to expect him to speak in English or Pashto but he always spoke in classical Punjabi language. This reminds me of great surgeons of Pakistan who left this world during the last three years whose obituary written by anyone. These include world renowned Pakistani Neurosurgeon in United States, Prof. Ayub K. Omayya in Washington DC. ,Prof. Bashir Ahmad former Principal and Professor of neurosurgery at King Edward Medical College, Lahore, Prof. Farakh A. Khan – a celebrated urologist, Prof, Hamid Qayyum. Orthopedic surgeon of S.Z.H from Lahore, Prof.Khalida Usmani, a legendary lady surgeon and former Principal of Fatima Jinnah Medical College for Women, Lahore, Prof Aftab Qureshi neurosurgeon Islamabad, Prof. A. .Ghaffar Jatoi the noted cardiac surgeon from Karachi, Professor Z.K.Kazi, Prof. Shaukat Ali Syed the former Director of NICVD and a well known cardiologist and Dr. Shahid Nawaz Malik Cardiologist at PIMS Islamabad who was shot dead at the hospital premises. I sincerely hope that some one will soon write an obituary note on these eminent medical personalities to acknowledge their services.
