I was born in Hyderabad, now in Pakistan, the eldest of four children. My father, a Civil Engineer from the United Kingdom was the Chief Administrator and Engineer of the City Municipality. I did my schooling in a Convent and was taught by European nuns. I always topped my class in school and wanted to pursue a career in Medicine. Partition of the country in 1947 was a traumatic experience for all of us who were forced to leave and to migrate to present-day India. Our family was scatered in different places in India for the first few years. I was fortunate to do my medical studies in Bombay.
