You can read the entire transcript of the article below:

My brother is very fascinated with airplanes and wants to do Aeronautical engineering after his 12th Science from Maharashtra. But there are not many colleges giving this course. Can you suggest some colleges? – Mr. Glen D’sa

To seek admission to Aeronautical or Aerospace Engineering, your brother will have to give entrance exams such as JEE-Main after his 12th Science with PCM. I would advice to take Mechanical or Electronics Engineering for his Bachelors degree; and then if interested go for Aerospace or Aeronautical Engineering for his Masters degree. It is always recommended to do a core course in graduation and a specialization courses in post graduation. You can get the list of colleges from AICTE website. Remember, fascination for airplanes does not mean your brother will perform well in the course. Please consult a career counsellor and confirm if engineering is right option for your brother.


I want to give UPSC Exams and pursue civil services. But my GK is very poor. Can I still pursue civil services? – Mr. Rajeev Kapoor

Poor GK should not be the reason to drop out form civil services preparation. You need to put extra effort in improving your GK. Start reading the basics from various NCERT books, newspapers, and magazines. Also, solve previous years question papers.

My son is in 12th Science with PCB. He likes biology, but is not interested to pursue medicine and surgery. Can you help us with other options where he can study biology as a career? – Mr. F. D’Mello

Other than medicine one can get into para medicine fields such as Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Nursing, Pharmacy, Medical Laboratory Technology and Optometry. He may also look at options of such as biotechnology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, botany, life sciences and forensic sciences courses.

Career in Pharmacy - Article by Farzad Minoo Damania [Parsi Times Weekly Newspaper]

Hi Friends,

Check out my article publication in Parsi Times Newspaper dated 21st September 2013, on Career in Pharmacy.

Article Title: Career in Pharmacy
Article Date: 21st September, 2013
Article on: Parsi Times Newspaper
Article Author: Farzad Minoo Damania



You can read the entire transcript of the article below:
Pharmacy is an amalgamation of medical sciences and chemical sciences. Traditionally, pharmacist is responsible for dispensing medicines and drugs prescribed by doctors and medical practitioners to patients. Pharmacist also provides information to patients about their medications and their use. But, the scope of pharmacists is much more than selling medicines. Pharmacists have started getting career opportunities beyond the traditional community and hospital pharmacy jobs. Fields of pharmaceutical and clinical research are becoming more popular, lucrative and challenging career options in the field of pharmacy. So let us look at career in pharmacy in detail:

Courses and Specializations:
Students who have completed 12th with Physics, Chemistry, Biology / Mathematics (PCB / PCM) can take admission to 4-year Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) degree. This can be followed by a 2-year post gradation course in Master of Pharmacy (M.Pharm).  At the M.Pharm level, you can specialize in Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmacognosy, Biochemistry, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Quality Assurance, and Pharmacology. Another option that is becoming popular is the 6-year integrated Pharma-D course (equivalent to B.Pharm + M.Pharm) which can be pursued after 12th Science (PCB/PCM). Remember, to get admission to all these courses, you have to give the entrance exams mostly conducted at the state level.  

Colleges and Fees:
In comparison to other medical and paramedical courses, pharmacy is not as expensive. Per annum course fees could range from around Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 1 lakh depending on the institute. Note of caution, while taking admission into pharmacy courses; please verify if the course provided by the college is approved by the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI). Some of the good colleges for pharmacy are: NIPER – Mohali, Bombay College of Pharmacy –Mumbai, JSS College of Pharmacy – Ooty, Pharmacy Group – BITS Pilani, Manipal College of Pharmacy – Manipal, DIPSAR – Delhi, and Jamia Hamdard – New Delhi. 

Job Prospects:
After obtaining your B.Pharm degree, you need to register as a pharmacist with the state Pharmacy Council, following which you can work as hospital pharmacist or community pharmacist in private or public sector.  You may set up your own pharmacy or druggist store. Other than being a pharmacist, there are several other opportunities to explore. M.Pharm and Ph.D. holders can get into clinical research, develop new drugs, perform qualitative analysis, and monitor the conduct of clinical trials. You can work in government departments such as the Food and Drug Administration, Health and Welfare Department, Department of National Defense, Indian Railways and Provincial Research Councils. Pharmaceutical companies and contract research firms hire regulatory managers, quality control managers and inspectors.  You could also work as a lecturer or professor in pharmacy colleges and universities. You may also look at jobs in sales- marketing and medical representation of pharmaceutical products. Medical transcription is also a career path that you can opt for.


Personality Traits:
You should possess a scientific aptitude with a liking for life science and medicine. Good interpersonal skills, active listening skills and counselling skills are also important to succeed in this field. Other skills necessary are attention to detail, a good memory of various products, patience to deal with rude customers, sense of responsibility and analytical skills. If you want to start your own pharmacy store, then leadership skills and business acumen are also important. To be successful as a medical representative, strong communication skills and convincing attitude are required.

Salary Remuneration:
Pharmacy professionals in the private sector can start with salary of around Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 25,000 per month.   Those who get into research and development can earn around Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 40,000. Medical representatives work on a lower base salary but get additional incentives as per sales targets achieved by them. With experience, you can rise in these professions or can also start your own venture.
