General Guidelines for Contributors

It's almost five years since this blog was launched, but it's not too late to provide general guidelines for prospective contributors. As most blog viewers know, I have always been trying to get more contributors from our batch to get fully immersed and involved in this blog. I have encouraged, persuaded and cajoled, but stopped short of coercion! Please consider this too to be just another step in that direction.


1. A contributor must usually have some affiliation to the 1962 Batch (June 1962 entrants to the Colombo Medical Faculty). But if someone who does not fall into this category wishes to make a contribution which would be considered of interest to the Blog readers, he/she could submit it to the Blog Administrator (BA) and the BA's decision will be final.

2. Qualifying contributors should submit articles (or other material) of potential interest to the Blog readership, to the BA who will publish after due consideration.

3. Qualifying articles (or materials/items) are in general:
(a) Related to the Medgrad 1962 Batch period (entry to graduation)
(b) Related to Sri Lankan and World events, especially in that period.
(c) Related to Medical Education.
(d) Related to significant achievements of members of the batch.
(e) Obituary notices and appreciation of colleagues, teachers and people who have contributed in different fields
     (especially Medicine) in Sri Lanka. Appreciations pertaining to persons who are still living are welcome.
(f) Artistic, musical or other creative contributions suitable for the "Creative spot".
(g) Anything else that is deemed to come under the categories listed on the right hand column of this blog.
4, In view of the popularity of sharing of jokes and other humourous material, the BA shall post at suitable intervals, what he considers to be among the best contributions that are received. Submission of original humourous stories based on one's personal experiences are encouraged. Those who like to share their jokes can also submit them selectively as comments to the jokes that are posted.

Thank you for your cooperation.
