Describe yourself in a sentence.
I am a quiet and simple person. What keeps me motivated is the fact that I love what I do.
What inspired you to choose this profession?
Health is wealth, as we have all learned right from our younger days. Health must be valued above everything else. When someone is sick or injured, their normal life gets disrupted. Doctors have the opportunity to restore their life back to normal. And this is very inspiring to me. This is the reason I chose to become a doctor.
Your favourite pastime.
I love spending time with family. And yes, I enjoy watching movies on TV.

If you are given the power to eradicate one of the evils that exist in our society, what it would it be?
