Growing up in the Colonial British India with its millennial heritage, rich traditions and colorful festivals as well as the economically lean times of WW II, getting the first set of shoes or electricity in the house only when in high school, becoming a doctor, serving the army; then leaving it all to come over to the USA and succeeding as the president of a reputable medical clinic, being inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, London… creating a legacy!
