Personal Profile

I am married with three daughters. My two eldest daughters are both doctors, practising in London and the third daughter is finishing her A Levels. My future plan is to continue with my charity work (Help The Poor Trust) and the others charities as instructed by Mother Teresa of Calcutta when I met her on one of my visits. I plan to continue to serve the community in the UK and Europe through medical television education programmes. I enjoy collecting antiques, gardening including farming vegetables and travelling.
