Speeches in Lakshadweep

As a part of the peripheral postings, I was deputed as consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Rajiv Gandhi Specialty Hospital, Agatti, Lakshadweep. My passion towards that place reached such an extent that the natives embraced me as a son of the soil. Apart from the Orthopaedic activities, I was actively involved in the Philanthropic activities of the island. One day I took up a seemingly impossible challenge of cleaning up the island and to start off from the airport. The air strip was almost completely surrounded by the beautiful white sandy beach. On a Sunday morning, I took 3 extra huge sacks and started from one end of the Airstrip to collect the plastic bottles and garbages. To my astonishment, the sacks were full within 200 metres of the start. It was safely disposed. The importance of garbage disposal especially in a small island like Agatti was instilled frequently into the minds of the islanders through health education. blood-donation-001disabled-day-001img_2212img_2214img_2211

One of them was the Blood donation awareness camp conducted by Jawahar arts and sports club in 2012 inaugurated by Deputy Collector where I gave Keynote address regarding the importance of blood donation.
