Dr Ravi Kannan dedicates Padma Shri to Barak Valley

By STAFF CORRESPONDENT

SILCHAR, Jan 28 - Dr R Ravi Kannan, noted oncologist and director of Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, has been awarded Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in the Republic of India. Dr Kannan has been awarded recognising his incredible contribution in the field of medicine and cancer cure, in particular.

Born on August 5, 1964, Dr Kannan joined the Cachar Cancer Hospital in 2007 from Adyar Cancer Institute Chennai and since then he has been the panacea to the cancer afflicted souls of southern Assam.

Sharing his thoughts with The Assam Tribune, after the list of awardees was announced, Dr Kannan said, �This recognition is for the people of Silchar, Barak Valley and Assam. This is not about me. I am just a cog in the wheel of many inspirational people who matter at the hospital. We are growing each day.�

The hospital here is making significant strides because of everyone putting their best efforts � from the doorman to the colleagues, people in the hospital society and the community, Dr Kannan maintained. People must not hesitate to confess the disease and come for treatment at early stages, he added.

Asked about his mother Indumati�s reaction on achieving the major feat, Dr Kannan said, �My mother told me, �is that so, very good�. I became a doctor because of my mother. Since childhood, she instilled the thought of becoming a doctor.�

Meanwhile, sharing his achievement, people of Barak Valley have been pouring wishes for Dr Kannan as social media is abuzz with congratulatory messages. Patients and colleagues at the Cancer Hospital too have conveyed their heartfelt wishes for Dr Kannan.

�For someone who thinks that patients have the right to meet doctors, the honour in the form of Padma Shri is a befitting recognition to the efforts of a humble physician in Dr Kannan,� said Joydeep Biswas, an academician who is himself fighting the lethal ailment.
