What’s the best part of your profession? What made you choose this profession?
There are many good things about this profession. You become a hope for anyone who is sick around you and the way their eyes shine up after they are cured is the best part about it. So basically I come from a family with a business background and as a bright student I had no other option but to choose science. Back then the only options were engineering or medicine and since I didn’t want to go ahead and do a job for my entire life, I choose this profession and it’s been a great decision of my life so far.
Do you like reading? What was the last thing you read?
I’m not a great reader but the last thing I read was Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and to be honest, I haven’t finished it yet because of my own studies.
