I believe in, ‘Change the Man In The Mirror, to Change The World for Better’ and follow Sir Rudolf Virchow’s philosophy; ‘The physicians are the natural attorneys of the poor and it’s their obligation to point out problems and to attempt their theoretical solutions’. I am a founder of ‘i-PACE’ (i-Partners in All Inclusive Community Empowerment), a NGO in India, working for Education, Health and Environment for All! I am also an avid badminton and cricket player, and I love to paint!
