Several of my fellow pediatricians, classmates from the PGDAP program in Kerala, friends, and family used to share, on an informal basis, issues related to children and teenagers. As we became more interactive, and as the number of people interested in these communications increased through sheer word of mouth, the need to have a formal platform was realized. My beloved son-in law, Sachin, suggested I start a group, and since adolescence was our primary interest, we decided to name it Adolesenceindia.
Starting off with 10 to 12, we started having professional discussions, more people kept joining, and the group grew to four figure numbers in a span of just four years, and is bringing adolescent awareness among pediatricians
