For well over a decade, I have strived to replicate the best of British practices in my motherland and feel immensely proud to be a ‘living bridge’ between the UK and India. I dedicate this astonishing moment and tremendous recognition to my family who stood rock solid by me, and equally, to my patients who have given me the unique privilege to be involved in their care. I owe a deep sense of gratitude to the Board of Directors of KIMS Hospitals who gave me a free hand to translate my vision into reality and to my Colleagues at KIMS-USHALAKSHMI Centre for Breast Diseases &Ushalakshmi Breast Cancer Foundation for their extraordinary contribution to ensure the best possible care to my patients. The Queen’s honour has well and truly added fire in my belly to make an even greater impact to further improve breast healthcare in Mother India – the country that I was born and raised.”
