Medical Practice, at 60

I was one of the brightest of students during my academic career. I respected my teachers and I was their favorite student. I have studied upto 28 years of age to pass M.S. in Ophthalmology and practiced for 32 years. I know practicing in small village-like town does bring more practice and less money. I was the only eye specialist available serving needy poor of the area for more than two decades.

I have worked as honorary visiting eye-surgeon at Eye camps organized at Adivasi (tribal) and poor areas of Vansda, Ahwa, Dharampur for long time - at Gram Seva Trust, Kharel and Bodhi Gaya (Bihar) eye-camps for more than five years. I am working at Rotary Eye Hospital, Chikhali till today in addition to my private practice.
