Dear all
It is indeed a great honour for me to be one of the co-founders of the SPARSH Alumni Association. I feel privileged being associated with my fellow alumni and our Alma Mater. Although we began our journey at SPARSH Hospital at different points in time of our lives, we hope to continue this journey by finding new ways to support, inspire and nurture each other. While careers and personal adventures may keep us physically separate, I look forward to us uniting through the ethos that is common to us all – which is of course the bond we share with our Alma Mater. With the coming together of this erudite company, I hope to help build this platform to serve as an instrument to create new relationships, renew old ones and foster a larger collaboration that achieves great academic, social, professional and philanthropic success.

Thanks and Regards

The vibrant energy that comes with becoming a teaching and learning organization will help in propagating knowledge and wisdom. It allows us to multiply our impact exponentially and this is one of the most significant ways that we contribute to our society and build a larger legacy of professionals who are committed to serving the human race.

“Education is the Bedrock of our Legacy
We remain Differentiated because we Share”

  • Our hunger to know ‘more’ gives us an edge.
  • Our passion to row ‘upstream’ makes us sharp.
  • Our best practices, shared, empowers the medical fraternity.
  • Our mentorship shapes meaningful careers across the healthcare spectrum.
