Founded in February 2007 by His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur, the Indian Head Injury Foundation was the outcome of a father’s concern for his injured son. After Maharaja Gaj Singh’s son Yuvraj Shivraj Singh suffered a serious head injury during a polo match, the family was subject to countless medical procedures, numerous remedial opinions and many tough decisions. Seeing the state of India’s social and medical response to head injury accidents and brain trauma, the Maharaja started on a mission to build a comprehensive system for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury, and to provide neuro-rehabilitation to the victims of such unfortunate incidents.
The Indian Head Injury Foundation participated in First Young India Summit on Road Safety orgainised by enactus DSE Department of Commerce and United Spirits Road to Safety, A DIAGEO Initiative on 26th March 2017 at Ballabhbhai Patel Chest Auditorium, New Delhi. It was well attended by the young students of Delhi University and eminent panelists shaded lights on the issue of Road Safety. Commodore Ranbir Talwar on behalf of IHIF was one of the panelists.
