arrow Membership Drive for Section on Young Psychiatrist (SYP) of MPA – SaYaP or the WINGS of MPA

13-02-2011

With passion and enthusiasm. Yes, it should be that way, and that way is what we want it to be. We want to make the organization as useful as possible to the members and to the society in return. We would like to attract many young psychiatrists and trainees so that the organization can be activated to its fullest.”

to be fearful of the mentally ill, then patients who have recovered will not have any chance of
surviving in a hostile community plagued by bigotry.

TRAVELOGUE

Exactly 65 years ago, the sky was very clear and the sun was bright in the early morning of 6th August, 1945. Life was as usual and little did anyone in Hiroshima know that all clocks and watches in Hiroshima would stop at 8.15 am that day. ‘Little Boy’ as it was being nick-named, had caused a massive mushroom explosion in one of the worst man-made disaster in history.
