In his 45 years of working life helping Cancer patients was the sole purpose of his life. He was a very simple, honest, kind hearted and very helpful human being and was always regarded and respected by his colleges, friends and family.
 

It was when his father got severely ill and cured by Homeopathy, a sudden spark of interest surfaced. He studied Homeopathy and treated many of his family and friends for no personal interest.
 

He always supported his family be it his parents, relatives, kids or his wife. He was always there when ever anyone needed him and came out with flying colours in all challenges of life.
 

Throughout his working career he was teaching radiographers from SDM Hospital and donated receiving to the library. He was also donating regularly to Cancer Patients, Leprosy village and orphaned children (SOS Village).
 

We have lost a good hearted, simple, devoted medical Physicist; his demise has created a space which can’t be filled. We pray to almighty to rest the departed soul in peace and give the strength to dear one’s to bear the loss.
