Napoleon Bonaparte has said, “Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.” Be it men’s climbing the Mount Everest...Be it men’s reaching on the Moon...Be it men’s flying in the air...It all looked impossible to the world…But a few strong-willed individuals made it possible…It was their unwavering commitment to their goal, it was their desire to succeed against all odds and above all, their self belief that made it possible. Physiotherapy in India is replete with young talent going the extra mile to make their mark. At PHYSIOTIMES, we bring to you the stories of such young and dynamic physios who are doing their best for the growth and progress of the profession with a never say die spirit and for whom impossible means I’ M POSSIBLE. This issue features an interview with Dr. Ketan Bhatikar, PT, a versatile young physio from Goa, who wants to make a positive difference by doing all it takes to address issues of grave concern to the field of physiotherapy in India.
