“One woman who has tremendously influenced
my life is Mother Teresa. I was treating her at the
BM Birla Hospital in Kolkata, and while she was at
the hospital recuperating, she would often
accompany me when I went on rounds in the
hospital. There were many child patients admitted
with cardiac problems. One day as we went
visiting kids she defined a pediatric heart surgeon
to me in the most beautiful way possible. “I know
why you are here,” said Mother. And I asked
her, “Why Mother?” “When God created these
children with heart problems, he was pre-
occupied and so he sent you here to treat
them,” she replied. That truly touched my heart.”
“ If a women earns Rs.4000 per month
she will spend complete on her family,
but if a man earns the same he will
spend only 1000.”
