      Dear, i will share my experience of almost 40 years, just go to a silent place for a while, the place where no any kind of interuptions, switch off your mobile, sit relaxed, take deep breath, and concentrate on your self, look inside, try fully to understand yourself, and discover who you are, what you are, just don’t think what you or your parents want, first look inside yourself and find your best ability and find which activity makes you happy.
      Try to repeat this excercise few time, you will find yourself that for what you were born, then make it your passion and career.

      May be you will feel suggestion filmy or bookish, but one day in your life you will find this suggesstion life worth.

      Good Luck and please pray for me as well.

      Student of my self

        @wah U r an idiot, life is not rainbows and cupcakes, u have to work hard to achieve success. If it was about doing what makes u happy then no one would become engineer/ doctor. Even doing business takes HARD WORK. U think entrepreneurship is easy? U r wrong. Work hard or stay poor. Stop misguiding people and telling them to sit alone and find yourself. Sit alone and do it stupid moron

    • Dr. Maqsood A. Bangash May 24, 2019 at 9:02 pm

      Pharmacy is quite a noble profession across the world. In developed countries Pharmacy Services are quite essential component of Healthcare System.
      But here in Pakistan recognition of this important position is question mark. Patient Safety and Drug Management has no level due to non involvement of Pharmacist in Healthcare system.
