Introduction:
 
The initiation of pharmaceutical education in Punjab of undivided India was in 1944, when in King Edward Medical College at Lahore Dr. Khem Singh Grewal thought of starting the B. Pharm. degree course. Dr. Grewal who was Professor of Pharmacology in the medical college had been in association Col. R. N. Chopra at School of Tropical Medicine Calcutta (now Kolkata) and with Dr. J. H. Burn at the London School of Pharmacy1. These associations had been instrumental in arousing his interest in pharmacy and promoting pharmacy education. Following the unfortunate events of partition of the sub-continent the didactical facilities to run the B. Pharm. course shifted from Lahore to Amritsar till 1959. The consolidated pharmacy instructional facilities under the banner of Department of Pharmacy were shifted to the Punjab University campus at Chandigarh. Dr. K. N. Gaind (now deceased) was given the reigns of the department. I was among the first batch of 13 students admitted in July 1959.
