VOSCON 2019, Akola

How Bone Connects Life’s Past, Present and Future?

When I think of bones, I think of Darwin’s “endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful.” Everything about the bones inside us, from their arrangement to their microscopic structure, is a testament to the way evolution mixes blind chance with the winnowing edge of natural selection. By mixing and matching old parts, forced along only by what’s useful in any given moment, what’s old becomes something new.

But that’s hardly all. We carry the past in our bones. Our species is relatively young, still a long way away from the million-year average that most mammals tend to persist, but even though we prefer to believe in our novelty, our skeletons underscore the truth..

Our evolution continues, but we’re mostly able to pick out these differences because we’ve developed a talent for noticing patterns in our own species. From the broader view of the fossil record, there is nothing about you or me that is particularly unexpected or staggering. We’re variations on a theme, a new combination of features that makes us stand out but also, more important, joins us to a history longer than any of us have a hope of truly and fully comprehending.

It’s really the best chance we have at lasting beyond ourselves. The legacies that we try to build are either dimmed or destroyed by the passing of time. There is almost nothing that we can create that holds any permanence. But if summer after summer of scuffing my boots on arid rocks and feeling the back of my neck crisp as I scan the ground has taught me anything, it’s that bones are the one chance we have at lasting millions upon millions of years, the purest and most minimalistic records of who we were.

Still, the bigger point of any study of prehistory is to put the past in its place against the watermark of the present, perhaps even joining the two.

As much as I love the phrase “lost worlds,” the fact is that it has always been the same world, with today’s life inextricably entwined with that of the past. Processes that occur now did not just pop into existence for us to observe them; they’ve been going on as long as there has been life.

Skeleton Keys: The Secret Life of Bone

Bone is a marvel, an adaptable and resilient building material developed over 500 million years of evolutionary history. It gives our bodies their shapes and the ability to move. It grows and changes with us, an undeniable document of who we are and how we lived. Arguably, no other part of the human anatomy has such rich scientific and cultural significance, both brimming with life and a potent symbol of death.

VOS Office

While keeping in alignment with ever increasing expectations of VOS members from annual meeting of our regional organisation, the responsibility of fulfilling on those expectations this year is rested upon the shoulders of Presidential city chapter, Akola Orthopaedic Society(AOS).

Trends and concepts in Orthopaedic practice keep changing as per demands of society. As expectations and demands of patients are changing, we too need to change and upgrade. Upgradation is always based on our past experiences and should have modularity for future. ’Learning From the past and looking into the future’, as tagline of VOSCON 2019, will offer you the concepts on various orthopaedic topics in accordance with the theme. National and international masters in these fields will be squandering pearls of their knowledge and experience. VOS Office of 2019-20 & AOS are eager to welcome you all on 19th and 20th October 2019.

Your august presence for VOSCON 2019 is must for us.

What brings limelight & worth to any academic gathering is the versatility of the ‘faculty’ talking… representing beliefs & practices of every generation… which shall unfold the vast horizon of orthopaedic knowledge to attending delegates… for them to enhance their understanding about core areas of day to day orthopaedics.

With this clear intention at the forefront, we have taken efforts to rope in the authoritative academic figures onboard from all over the country; rightly blended with our native VOS speakers, many who already have made their presence felt at National & International forums.

Cumulatively, our chosen faculties will help us offering scientific buffet for delegates which will be a right mix of pearls of ‘yesteryears’, established  practices  of  ‘today’ & perspectives for ‘future’ orthopaedics.

Presenting to you all, Dr Milind Chaudhary…at his oratory best… to take us all along, on the journey of ‘evolution’ of his speciality, he chose to live-in with day-in & out, generation ago.
