To prove their point they created VAPM. The then zealous pioneers with newer members who followed, with full dedication devotion and determination nourished this tender sapling of 20 members to reach the present size of a full bloomed fruit bearing tree of 300 members with more to come. The first constitution was prepared by Dr. Mukta Kherdekar and Late Dr. M.T. Paithankar. The first body of VAPM was installed by Dr. R.K. Gadgil.
