Over the last 25 years that I have known Dr Sheela Ma’am, She has been a role model not only for me but for several of my batch-mates, seniors and juniors. Her smiling face and childlike enthusiasm have always been infectious, be it in the classroom or outside it.
It has been a pleasure indeed to see and assist her on the operating table, as she performed one life saving operation after another. That ‘Never Say Die’ attitude and the extra mile that she goes to for every single patient of hers!
I pray to the almighty today on the occasion of Guru Purnima that He bless her with happiness, good health and a long life so she can continue to touch more and more lives as she has done mine.
