A few days ago, I was at Somaiya Ayurvihar, with my daughter, who was there for a checkup. Assisting Dr. Radha Verma were many of her resident doctors. Among them was Zafar.
He grew up in Antop Hill in Mumbai, and grew up in difficult financial circumstances. He was working since the age of 14, and used to carry TVs and other items people would need.
Now, he did his medicine at Sion and was now doing further work in surgery at our Medical College.
What a wonderful story of hard work and success. I feel privileged that we have students like that with us, who I am sure will contribute to the making of our country.
