At the outset, I wish to thank the members of the Bombay Orthopaedic Society for electing me the President of our prestigious society. It is indeed a great honour for me and the fact that it has come 25 years after my father was the President makes it even more special for me. I shall strive hard to live up to your expectations.
BOS is equated with academic excellence and we are known for our academic activities throughout the year. In an effort to stress on quality rather than quantity, we decided this year to try and have fewer but more meaningful activities.
Bombay Orthopaedic Society is poised at a very important juncture in this mercurial world. It is a society which has been a pioneer in state-of-the-art academics and a brand icon like none other, a model which may societies seek to emulate. It is therefore an even greater responsibility for us to live up to it and remain at the summit of academics. Last year’s theme was futuristic orthopaedics and hence we moulded our society to face the future.
This process involved taking certain courageous decisions so that our society wins in the future. We implore you to understand this vision of ours and join hands with us this year in order to get it right this time itself in the best interest of the society.
