 Rachana Officers Social Association - ROSA

  The Rachana Officers' Social Association(ROSA) was formed in Mumbai in late 1980s by Dr. V.P. Dandge then HOD, Pediatrician in Govt Medical College) and like minded officers from Govt/PSUs and Mumbai Municipal Corporation. Prominent among others in shaping ROSA to come up were Shri. B.N. Waghmare (IRS/Railways),Dr.B.A. Damavale, Capt Shahu Dange (BMC), Shri.J.P. Dange (IAS), Shri. Shivling Bhosale (Rtd.IAS), Late N.P.Mukane (NFDC), Capt. Prakash Gaikwad (BPT),Shri.J.G.Honkamble (MTNL), Shri. P.B. Janwalkar (BMC),Mrs. Meera Khandagale (Asst Labour Commr),Shri. D.K. Mane (BPCL), Shri.A.M. Murudkar (Rtd. Registrar, Mumbai University), D.J.Padmane (Rtd.Under Secy MPSC),E.G. Savakare (Railways/Bhusaval) and number of officers from Police,Mantralaya, BMC,BPT & medical fraternity.

  The ROSA generated tremendous social spirit and evoked overwhelming response from the members of the community. It's objectives were need based and simple. This was like the gentleman's agreement:

Getting Aware of other Charmakar officers working in same city and some times in same department

(2) Get-together of families and friends for socializing and interaction

Treating every member equal in the social functions, hence no elevated stage for the office-bearers



Making effort to rise above 'personal egos', 'vested interests', 'regionalism', 'show-offs of high and moneyed people', 'flattery and boasting', 'cheap populist gimmicks', 'irrelevant felicitation programmes', 'negative vibes' etc

(5) Keep at bay the rich and political class to check their adverse influence

  Following Dr.Dandge's departure from Mumbai to Gulf/UK a big void was caused in ROSA. Indeed, other officers made good efforts to maintain the tempo of ROSA activities set in by Dr. Dandge, they could not save it from straying away from main objectives and became dormant.

  Dr. Dandge is back to India and set up his establishment in Nagpur. He as well as other members & well wishers have renewed efforts to revive ROSA activities. Other members at Mumbai and Pune are also eager to revive ROSA activities.

  We wish all of them good luck...!!!
