Greetings from Ahmedabad, business capital of the "Vibrant" state of Gujarat, the fastest growing and the role model state of India.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I invite you to the 24th National conference of the Indian association of Surgical Gastroenterologists at Ahmedabad from 2nd to the 5th of October 2014. We are honoured to host this conference in Ahmedabad after a long period of 23 years.
We promise an academic feast over the 4 days of the conference. You are well aware, the IASG national meetings have one the best academic programmes and are immensely educative for practising surgeons as well as postgraduates.
Along with the academic benefits, you can explore the land of "Mahatma", visiting Gandhi Ashram, seeing the spectacular sound and light show of Akshardham temple at Gandhinagar, which depicts a profound story from our spiritual lineage the "Upanishadas".
Apart from the local sightseeing, you can have a short family vacation to see the magnificent Asiatic Lions at Sasan Gir in Junagadh, a lovely hill station Mount Abu or a beautiful lake city - Udaipur. All these destinations are just 3-4 hours road trip from Ahmedabad. The highway, infrastructure and the governance of Gujarat is one of the best in the country. You are welcome to witness this for yourself.
We look forward to seeing you and experience the warm hospitality of Gujarat.
