Swami Vivekananda, once said, “Take up one idea, make that one idea your life, think of it, dream of it, let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to our senior life member of Indian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology Dr. Yeshwant B Rawal, Clinical Professor, School of Dentistry, Marquette University, Milwaukee, USA, on his recent appointment as Director and Examiner to the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. Dr. Yeshwant B Rawal has set new graphical standard points of achievements as an Indian Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologist, which appears to be ideal guiding light for new generations of Oral Pathologist to follow.
