During my medical college days, There were many professors and teachers Some of them were liked and Some of them were hated. But one professor who was heading the surgical unit was an icon. He used to wear white and white dress. he was an ex-military man with Excellent physic and always smiling. The way he used looked after the patients with such compassion, Was inspiring for all of us. everything about the doctor-patient relationships I learned are from Dr Sharma Guru. His wife was a microbiology professor and Sharma guru and his teachings are strongly etched in my memory. And I salute him from the bottom of my heart.
Sir you have inspired me to be kind and human to patients Thank you.
Dr Raja Shekaran who is the chief of orthopaedics in Ganga Hospital. is a great inspiration for me professionally, both of us are almost the same age. But I always looked up to him for his professional achievements. The way he conducts himself in the hospital outside the hospital and especially in research and academics is unparalleled. Whenever I go to Ganga Hospital, I come back with inspiration and depression.inspiration because I wanted to emulate him and make sunshine one of the best institutes in India. depression because its many more peaks I have to scale. Before I can say that I can compare myself with Ganga Hospital
Raja. You are such a towering figure. You're always an inspiration to me.
During my postgraduate days in Puna Dr. sancheti who was my boss is a great personality who inspired me professionally and personally. He was a kind man who gave me a post-graduate seat in his in institute without any recommendations I just went from Andhra Pradesh to Puna in search of post-graduate seats He didn't know who I was. He just gave me the seat That was his kindness. He looked after me so well that I was so comfortable in Puna I learned humility and I learned patient idiosyncrasies from him. He was so humble that one of the things I wanted to emulate from him not only he taught me It also happened that his son Dr. Parag Sancheti has taught my son Adarsh I think it really happens in Father and son combination teaching father and son.
Thank you, Sir because you gave me my professional footing and you paved the way to go to England through your Institute. Thank you, SIr.
During my post-graduate days in Pune, Dr. Satish Kutty was my colleague Initially. Then he became my teacher because he was heading one of the units in Sancheti Hospital. Though age-wise I'm elder than him but He was such an accomplished person in academics. He became my boss and I was his Senior registrar. And Satish liked me so much that he literally took me to England and helped me settle there. So all my professional achievements and all my accolades are because of Satish and his help to take me to England. Satish not only took me to England but he also helped me settle over there. He helped me in so many ways more than a brother does. Satish whatever I am today I owe it to you. That's why I named one of my theatres after you.
Thank you so much for being such an ideal inspiration.
Padma Bhushan Awardee Shanta biotech chairman and Bhishma pitamah of vaccines in India. Dr. Varaprasad reddy garu who is also my neighbour and I call him Fondly Bava. He always inspires me with his values and with his relentless pursuit of truthfulness in his life. I can never be like him because his moral standards are so high that is impossible to emulate him. Every minute and every time I meet up with him, he inspires me with his thought process in life. His perspectives with his love towards, music and poetry.
I'm blessed to have him as my neighbour. He inspires me day in and day out. Thank you, Bava
Autobiographies, humour, and Telugu literature have always fascinated Dr. Reddy. Inspired by the words of his dear friend Dr. Bhargavi, he authored a book, Guravayanam, which falls under the comic genre. First circulated as an article in the Andhra Jyothi, the piece is now widely available on Amazon, with the next instalment on the cards.
An ardent cinephile and music buff, he enjoys the works of Mr Rafi, Ghantasala, S.P Balasubrahmanyam, and A.R. Rahman. He also enjoys the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown and is good friends with many of the stars.
Dr. Reddy is an ardent lover of nature and can often be found gardening in his free time.
Dr. Reddy is a self-proclaimed foodie with a soft spot for foods that remind him of his younger days like corn on the cob and roasted peanuts from the road side vendors.
A traveller at heart, going on vacations with friends is an integral part of Dr. Reddy's life. He tries to travel internationally at least twice a year but given a chance he would love to travel 365 days a year. One of his favourite countries is Switzerland because of the serenity, peace and beautiful scenery it has to offer. With its rich history and architecture, Italy stands a close second.
