From the Desk of President

Nandita Palshetkar

Good evening friends, mentors and fellow doctors. I am truly humbled, blessed and privileged to stand before you this evening, as the President of IAGE (Indian Association of Gynecological Endoscopists). I am truly delighted for the trust that you have reposed in me.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes – Marcel Proust. Endoscopy today is our new eyes into our patient.

Bill Gates has said that India is a superpower. And I think it applies best to us. India: An Endoscopic Superpower – We are clever, innovative, skillful, hardworking and tech savvy.

ART & Endoscopy represents a synergy. Both of them are required to achieve the results in an infertile couple & thus my passion in both the fields was aroused.

My Theme for the year is Endoscopic training - investing in the future– Teach, encourage, instruct, mentor, praise, influence, guide & inspire.

It has been quite a journey and there are many people who were my pillars along the way. I must take some of your time to acknowledge the immeasurable contributions that they have made to my life.

I thank my family, my husband, mother, father, my father-in-law, son and my daughter-in-law who have showered me with their unending and unconditional support.

Thank you to those selfless givers of knowledge, my mentors and teachers. Thank you for the values that you have taught me and hopefully, I have learnt and imbibed.

My mentors Dr K K Deshmukh, Dr. Purandare and Dr. Lopez were instrumental in my education.Thank you for inspiring me I am here today because of your confidence in me.

To Dr. Hrishikesh Pai and my team and all my colleagues – thank you for being there for me and pushing me to succeed to the highest of our potential and best of our ability. You have helped me to set high standards for myself, and achieve my goals and dreams.

I accept this post with great humility and am grateful to all the people whose support is the reason I am up here right now. What we have accomplished together has made a difference to hundreds of human lives... and yet I hope that everyone is hungry and ready for more.

Lets roll up our sleeves and continue this journey with more dedication than ever.

Dr. Nandita Palshetkar, President

IAGE 2018

From the Gen. Secretary

Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar

To all my dear friends & colleagues,

I, Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar, would like to express my gratitude for bestowing me with the position of Hon. General Secretary of IAGE – 2017-18.

I am really delighted by the expression of confidence that you all have shown on me & would give my best to let your believe in me, turn to a reality.

Being an effective General Secretary involves various organizational abilities along with ensuring support to the president & smooth functioning of the management committee. These would otherwise have not been possible, if I did not had the support of our committee. I am really delighted to have a great dynamic team with Dr. Nandita Palshetkar as our President to lead us all.

I would also like to express my hearty thanks to all my teachers, mentors & family members because of whom I have been able to achieve this milestone today.

The past years of IAGE have seen many developments & I would like to add to it & take it to even higher level. As proposed by our president, this year we shall work to give our youth a platform by creating IAGE Youth Council. We plan to introduce some medium through which we can exchange knowledge between our members & even give another reason for other fellow doctors to become a member of our association. We aim to make our society even more dynamic by letting each member get actively involved & be updated about the latest proceedings. Of course, Conferences & Workshops will be one the prime focused areas & we will make sure to make them as much academically rich & socially entertaining as possible.

Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar, Hon. General Secretary
