Since spending four professionally rewarding months of his sabbatical with Professor Ramaswamy, his alumnus and shyshia, at Masonic Children’s hospital, he considers Coimbatore as his second Medical academic home. This warm sentiment has grown exponentially with each of his seven subsequent visits. He has become extremely fond of the Pediatricians of Coimbatore and surroundings. He found their assiduous thirst to updating their already vast knowledge and mutual interactions very impressive and stimulating. He affectionately admires them as the brightest, most passionately dedicated and competent professionals and regards them as his most favored and dearest friends and colleagues. He was also very impressed by the quality, eagerness, compassion of residents, students, nurses and other staff he met on daily bedside rounds, lectures, and also by the excellent residents case presentations and discussions.
He is blessed with 2 daughters - one is an attorney and the other is an Orthopedic Surgeon.
