General Secretary, ASI

Conferences open the doors between known & unknown. It gives us opportunities to meet with each other and share the knowledge. With the declaration of Covid-19 Pandemic every one of us was afraid of meeting with each other. All the academic activities came to stand still, effect of this pandemic is still on.

Looking over the long gap in organizing conference department of Anatomy KGMU was requested to conduct a virtual conference on behalf of Anatomical society of India, and I am delight to share that they accepted the request immediately without any question.

Organization of scientific event gives an insight to overall development of teachers & students both intellectually & socially. I am sure participants would be immensely benefited by different deliberations during conference. One rightly said Knowledge is of little value when it confined to few individuals & only be utilized when others understand the concept involved.

I extend my whole hearted appreciations & best wishes to Dr. Punita Manik & her dynamic and vibrant team members for organizing this 68th NATCON of ASI organized virtually. I applaud them for leaving no stone unturned to make the grand event a success.
