India is living in villages. Majority of Indian population is women and children and they are the high risk vulnerable population. Hehad migrated from metropolitan city to remote rural area, Metpally on people’s request to serve the children. It was a remote place in Telangana 80 km away from district headquarters with feeble access of health care for acute illnesses in children and its associated high mortality and morbidity before 1995.

He had started a first paediatric hospital with round the clock emergency services. They have established 1st neonatal intensive care unit and pediatric emergency services. Gradually the unit upgraded with modern equipment for disease evaluation and efficient management like invasive and non-invasive ventilation, and surfactant therapy for respiratory distress of new-born babies. For the first time at the region, he  brought bedside echo-cardiology for hemodynamic evaluation of neonates, infants, children and extended echo-cardiography services to adults’ patients as well. Hemodynamic evaluation is essential for grading the illness, detection of shock and its effective management. Echo cardiac facility helped our patients in early detection, medical management and in time referral for corrective cardiac surgery of congenital heart diseases. He had introduced bedside neuro-sonogram and trans cranial Doppler evaluation which helped their infants in early detection and severity assessment of devastating neurological conditions, and their early management, introduced therapeutic hypothermia for post-asphyxiated babies who did not cry and initiate breathing at birth, EEG and laboratory. They saved countless infants and children who brought in terminal stage of illness especially those belonging to poor socio-economic strata and contributed in improving infant mortality and under five children mortality. Regionally created the concept of ‘well baby’ among parents and in local community by conducting countless well baby shows and delivering health education. Significant number of children in India and globally are deaf and blind and it is crucial in early detection for in time referral and management. He had started neonatal screening program for all visiting new-born babies for eye vision, hearing and thyroid status. Telangana is diabetes capital in the country and rural people have less access for specialized diabetic care management. He realized this scenario and trained in diabetology much earlier (a decade before it was available at district level) and started echo-cardio-diabetic services to rural people.

He had worked with NGOs like Rotary club, Lion’s club, Sathyasai seva samithi, local professional association, officials and social welfare hostels. He had participated and took leadership role regionally and implemented programmes like poliomyelitis eradication / pulse polio immunization, deworming children, anemia and malnutrition detection and management, free vaccination for >5 years for all infants in private set-up. Performed family planning surgeries in government health care centres – tubectomy and no scalpel vasectomies for eligible couples and contributed towards population control. Started proper and better referral care and follow up services for needy patients and attached to a district medical teaching institute.
