Mashhoor hone ki khwaish nahin hai hame
Aapne hamein pehchana, bas yahi kaafi hai.
In 2022-23, of the things we think, say and do we will make it Sustainable, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time bound -that’s S.M.A.R.T. They will be done by TOGSians who will strive to be Sensitive, Meticulous, Available, Responsible and Transparent – that’s also S.M.A.R.T. With these attributes, we will be encouraged to T.O.G.S. – ie Transform, Optimise, Give and Serve. Transform the self in knowledge, emotional quotient and personality; Transform for the profession, by acquiring newer skills, techniques and equipment; Try to make the world a better place to live in as regards the community, city and the country. We live in a world of distractions and disruptions. We need to Optimise our work schedule, our health status and find ways of relaxation even as we strengthen our financial base. I ask you members to join me in Giving – unrestricted giving of your Time, Talent Thinking and a bit of your treasury . And all this why so that we can Serve our families , patients and community That’s the true meaning of T.O.G.S. Our symbol of the SMART team signifies the diversity, the equity and the inclusivity that’s needed to progress by working together.
TOGSian ka Rishta Ek Parinde Ki Tarah Hota Hai
Saktise Pakdo, To Mar Jayega
Narmi se Pakdo To Udd Jayega
Mohabbat se Savaro To Dil Main Bas Jayega

Workshops on Endoscopy / Ultrasound / Cadaveric Dissection And AI Based Simulation/ Nursing Aide Training will give a fillip to the enhancement of skills. A fit mind needs to be complemented by a fit body. For fitness we have YOGA sessions, Zumba Sessions and the Docathon. On the 4-8th Jan 2023 we need to book our air tickets and register in large numbers for the AICOG Conference In Kolkata and then transit to Darjeeling, Sikkim, Bhutan or the Northeast. For the social cause, we would be taking care of adolescents with the Swasthya Kishorinche program, the Menstrual Cup propagation, Covid vaccination drives amongst others. For entertainment we have JALSA - an overnight picnic, Regular Karaoke sessions, a movie nite every three months, Euphoria (dance / drama display) Jubilation a Musical extravaganza and agar rab ne aur aapne saath diya to an educational excursion outside India.
Friends - All of us are blessed. Blessed with a good birth a good education, a good practice and a healthy financial balance. What else would we need. What is there that we cannot afford. The time has come friends for us to be more of givers than takers. We are proposing two changes keeping in mind this attitude. The first – rather than give a meaningless physical object of appreciation for services rendered to TOGS, we will on behalf of the TOGS supporter donate a mid day meal to Anna Mitra Foundation - a beginning of our corporate social responsibility. And two – we will be setting up the TOGS Great Heart Hitachintak Awards - a way to boost our corpus. Members are requested and encouraged to donate voluntarily small to large amounts which will be cumulatively recorded and the donor appreciated at appropriate occasions. Eg Level 1 Silver someone who has given Rs 50,000, Gold Rs 2 lakh , Diamond Rs 5 lakhs, and Platinum for Rs 8 lakhs and Samrat for Rs 10 lakhs and above. Asking is a task. But in the task is the answer. Remove the T the word left is Ask
Don’t be a member only become a TOGSIAN Richard King I a thankful to two people. One who put me into TOGS and the other who put TOGSIAN culture in me. John F Kennedy once said - think not what the country can do for you, think what you can do for your country. Can we drop the coloured glasses, broaden our minds, elevate our thinking, become statesmen rather than leaders and walk the talk as we write a glorious chapter of togetherness, of bonding, of achievement of Nirmal Anand.
Your first amongst equals
Prof Dr Mohan Chandavarkar
TOGS SMART President 2022-23
Hello dear friends,
I will be Secretary General TOGS for the year 2022-23.
I am super excited and at the same time a bit nervous as I understand the huge responsibility of the title. But I am sure our SMART team will do a wonderful job with a very supportive and dynamic president Dr. Mohan Chandavarkar and enthusiastic, hardworking managing committee team.
Friends last two years We have seen and experienced the unexpected.
There were new ‘NEWs’ formed, and many old things were wiped out.
Last two years we were in touch with each other through zoom meetings, phone calls, WhatsApp and Google meets. No doubt all this latest technology has made all of us very tech savvy but still what we all were missing was that personal touch, meeting each other and our actual physical CMEs.
Thankfully, Life slowly but surely is coming back on track. I am very happy that I am secretary in this year wherein we can have online as well as offline CMEs. Throughout this coming year, me and my team will strive hard to give the best on academic as well as on cultural front under the able guidance of our president Dr Mohan Chandavarkar. Today TOGS is a very strong body which has left its positive impressions on the map of FOGSI.
This was possible only because of all the past teams which have worked hard to give TOGS the glory it enjoys today. Smart team TOGS 2022- 2023 will work to add to this shining glory.
‘Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people, TOGS builds TEAM.’
I from the desk of secretary would like to urge each and every member to contribute in any form either academically, culturally or in whatever way possible to make this year more happening and enriching.
Together we can, Together we will.
Dr Swarupa Iyer.
Secretary General TOGS 2022-23.
