ROSA Rachana Officers Social Association (ROSA)
President : Dr V. P, Dandge (Nagpur)
Active centres - Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Amravati, Aurangabad
Proposed plan : To set up units in each district of the state.

        The Rachana Officers' Social Association(ROSA) was formed in Mumbai in late 1980s by Dr. V.P. Dandge (the then HoD, Pediatric Dept in Govt Medical College, Mumbai) along with like minded officers from Govt/PSUs and Mumbai Municipal Corporation. Prominent among others in shaping ROSA to come up were Shri. B.N. Waghmare (then IRS/Railways), Dr.B.A. Damavale, Capt Shahu Dange (then Dy Commr, BMC), Shri.J.P. Dange (then Secy, Mantralaya, 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 (then 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 'very limited' but need based and simple. This was like the gentleman's agreement:

To Get Aware of other Charmakar officers working in same city and some times in same department (This has been the core agenda of the ROSA)

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

To Treat all member equal in the social functions, hence no elevated stage for the office-bearers



To Make 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) To Keep at bay the rich and political class to maintain social nature of ROSA.

  ROSA activities had became dormant in mid-1990s, following departure of Dr.Dandge to Gulf/UK for professional work. Now Dr. Dandge has returned to India and set up his establishment in Nagpur. He started making steady attempts to revive ROSA and since last 5-6 years it has picked up some momentum. For some select activities please visit our Newsletter 2015

  A number of officers and professionals from Charmakar Samaj have started associating with ROSA with new vigor, enthusiasm and vision at Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Aurangabad, Nasik and Amravati. Soon this activity is expected to start in other  Districts and Cities.  
  Recently (Mumbai-January 2015) ROSA decided to work on following priorities:
  a) Publish a Directory of ROSA Members-2015  (about 5000 members)
  b) Emphasize on organizing family get-together and
  c) Set up Matrimonial Cell as a community service

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