About the Book

Dr. Potdar has been eclectic in harvesting up the illustrations from his career. Immense and wide ranging exposure to  industrial life, these instances could be of colossal significance to bourgeoning as well as young Pharmacists. Erudite Potdar has pragmatically analysed these occasions for the benefit of Pharmacist Community. In today's very fluid and muddle scenario hovering over the Pharma Industry, these experiences could be a light house for those who would like to flourish. Technological advances/affluence of plethora of available knowledge if blended with right learning from genuine guidance as elaborate as in  this could be a wonderful formulation of a Pharmacist.
