The national conference of Hair Transplant doctors in India, Haircon 2019 of the Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons of India, was a great success. It was held in Indore under the organisation of Dr. Anil Garg, our tireless and inventive secretary. I had a great time catching up with old friends in the fraternity, including Dr. Parag Neog of Monjoven HT Clinic in Guwahati, my senior. It was also great to learn about the latest advances in the field, there are always so many things to learn even after all these years of doing transplants! There were a number of foreign experts and it was great listening to their experiences and learning from them. I was elected to the Ethics Committee of the AHRS and it will be a great opportunity for me to try and bring about a more ethical practice by hair transplant doctors in India.
Indore has a pleasant climate and the streets are so wide and clean. Indore has the well deserved reputation of being the cleanest city in India, and the streets, etc are far better than those of Guwahati. We are really very backward even compared to a city like Indore. One thing that amazed me was the that even the busy city intersections do not have traffic lights, people just manage to cross safely by looking at the other vehicles and there is no traffic jam. If there had been no traffic lights or police to control the traffic in Guwahati, everybody would simply rush in and create a huge mess!
