Our Past President, Sadashiv Gorakshkar, Director of the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India, retired from that position on May 31, 1996, after thirty-two years, twenty-two of those as Director. The success of his work in making the museum a place of prominence and importance in the life of that city is indicated by the tributes in recent articles devoted to recognizing his achievements in Bombay and as one of the museum leaders of India. Under his tenure, he was happy to be able to see the museum change from an object-oriented institution to a community-oriented one. He continues his involvement with the museum as a Trustee but will channel his efforts in a different direction in the village of Bhatsai about two hours away. We are confident that he will benefit his new home with the energy, knowledge and dedication that he has shown in his museum career.
We congratulate another CAM member, Dr. Kalpana Desai, who becomes the new Director of the Prince of Wales Museum. We look forward to her closer involvement with the Commonwealth Association of Museums and wish her much success and pleasure in her new post.
