President’s Message 2014
Written by Dr. G. S. Edirisinghe   

Dr. G. S. Edirisinghe President, The KSMI consider it a great honor and a privilege to be appointed as the President of the most prestigious Clinical body in the central province and wish to thank all of you who entrusted me with this task. I feel quite humbled when I go through the list of past presidents of the KSM, as many of them are household names in this country and many others are my revered teachers who have inspired me. I will make it certain that the trust you all placed in me will not be in vain.

I take this opportunity to appreciate with admiration the yeoman’s service the outgoing President, Prof Badra Hewawithana rendered to the KSM. She has put the whole house in order , and that will make my life more easier. I am indeed thankful to her and her energetic committee for all they have contributed to the KSM.

“Safe City – Better life“

The KSM theme for this year is "Safe City – Better life"
"සුරැකුණු නුවරක - පැහැබර හෙටක් "

2500 people die and 15000 get badly injured each year on our roads. Our roads are like a battlefield and we and our children and loved ones have to risk this battlefield everyday.

Our theme for this year is “Safe City – Better life“ . This is an ambitious, far reaching plan to make Kandy a safer city by establishing pedestrian and vehicular discipline. For once we try not to bitterly criticize the City, Drivers and the Police for traffic chaos and try to do something about it ourselves as a big group. We hope to harness all resources we can muster to reach the most vulnerable groups in the general public. This should lead to a attitude change among the public to give priority to safety while on the road. This programme requires commitment and support from all of you and soon we will let you know how you can help us.
