Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focussing on what excites you. -Oprah Winfrey

Welcome to this special issue of International Journal of Paediatric Orthopaedic for the Silver Jubilee conference of our beloved association POSI (Paediatric orthopaedic society of India). Silver Jubilee POSICON 2019 is a journey we have lived with great passion and every aspect of which we have crafted with love and enthusiasm with a vision of creating a never before conference experience for faculty and delegates.
POSI and POSICON are known for the excellent academic content and we have the responsibility to live up to the xpectations. However, with expert guidance from Dr Ashok Johari our organising Chairman and co-operation of all our members of Organising Committee we believe, we are able to meet the challenge. Several First time features make the journey of this event stand out from the rest. The enriching Scientific Program well worked out and detailed to the minute was ready and released almost 2 months in advance. The faculty lectures and hand outs are all uploaded online, enabling a dry run thus avoiding audio visual glitches and making the faculty stress free. Two collaborative post conference activities the Congenital Limb Deficiency course and The Master class on spine have added great value to those looking for a focussed experience. In our Go green endeavour, the entire publications are in digital format including the final scientific program and brochure with handouts. The logo was designed by a child artist and the mascot Pihu the peacock was created who changed his form with every stage of the conference and every announcement. The conference with a mission- a social awareness about the endangered species: our small contribution towards conservation. The contribution of the creative and enhanced use of social media in the form of You tube, face book, twitter, WhatsApp and telegram and the ever changing new visuals gifs and videos used for promotions has been outstanding. Four nights of scintillating entertainment including a theme party with a shining star contest at the grand gala night in the form of a theme party will give ample opportunity to the delegates to participate. Western and Indian Jugalbandi and folk dances will add to the festivity and vibrance of the occasion. The social programs and spouses programs are lovely mix of holistic health beauty an self-exploration topics along with excursions to feel the heritage and pulse of the city. Unconventional memorabilia and limited edition exclusively crafted gifts will make your joys of attending the conference double. The jewel in the crown being the august presence of an Iconic personality Mr Sachin Tendulalkar for our inaugural is indeed a matter of great pride and privilege to the journey of POSICON 2019. We have labouriously crafted out themed menus in order to make every meal special and showcase the rich variety of cuisine in India . But as they say the final proof of the pudding is in the eating: hence we hope that each and every person goes back with their hearts full of memories and minds full of knowledge in every sphere.
