The Cardiological Society of India (CSI: https://csi.org.in), the largest association of cardiologists in India, works towards the prevention of CVD and the reduction of cardiovascular mortality by raising awareness among its members, other healthcare professionals and the public.
The story of the creation of our society makes for some interesting reading. Bharat Ratna Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy (B.C. Roy) was instrumental in the official formation of the CSI which was founded even before the American College of Cardiology.
A group of eminent physicians including Dr B C Roy and others were travelling on a train from Kolkata to Asansol, a suburban town, to attend a conference in 1946. On board the train, the idea of forming the cardiological society was mooted and discussed. Two years later, in 1948, the elite physicians of India met in Kolkata (then Calcutta) and the CSI came into being on 4 April 1948 with Dr B C Roy as founder president.
