The conference’s theme was ‘Neurodevelopmental paediatrics: An idea whose time has come’. Chief guest Dr Panja said, “It is wonderful to share the dais with fellow medical professionals and with Budhia. I have known her for a long time. I have seen her work and I have partly seen her struggle, her personal struggle too, but she is victorious, she is Nari Shakti.”
A unique confluence of stalwart paediatrics and experts in the field of child development from across the country, panel discussions, guest lectures, debates, quizzes and interactive sessions at the conference provided an excellent blend of scientific and cultural thought.
