Coming from a rural background and modest upbringing, getting into MBBS course at the prestigious SCB medical college, was the most talked about achievement in my village. But I had dreamt of being a gynaecologist, the inspiration being my maternal uncle Prof. Dr. S K Mahapatra one of the leading Gynaecologists of the state. Completion of MD from the same institute and rural posting meant that I was ready to serve in the capacity of Gynaecologist. Among the large varieties of patients I came across, the most intriguing and challenging for me were those with infertility. Never in my dreams had I thought that one fine morning I will land up at Christian Medical College, Vellore to pursue a higher training in reproductive medicine. The workload was enough and the training was excellent under the guidance of Prof. Dr. George Korula. My sincerity and dedication had ensured an offer from the institute to continue as a faculty and settle at Vellore.
