A friend's anecdote - as received

Dr. Ravi Kannan is a product of Kilpauk Medical College, Chennai and his MD specialisation was in Oncology / cancer.

Our uncle, his father was working with Indian Air force and was an expert in aerial photography.

So our uncles family was always on the move from one airbase to another.

Ravi Kannan joined the Adyar Cancer Centre Chennai for a paltry salary and refused to join the pvt hospitals who offered him very very high pay package.

He was so.passionate in his work and rose to be the No 2 in the Adyar Cancer Centre after the No 1 Dr.Shantha.

His specialisation was Head and Neck and obviously the most crucial and risky parts in the human body.

Received a call today it was in recorded voice of PM @narendramodi , about how d selection process of #PadmaAwards has been transformed by his govt & hw making d process online has led to maintain transparency. Happy to receive the call . Thread on awardees 👇
After changing the selection process common ppl arw now being honoured becoz the emphasis is no longer on the nominee but the work done, without any "Sifarish" (recommendation).
Lakshmikutty, a tribal woman from Kerala, who prepares 500 herbal medicine from memory and help thousands of people especially in snake and insect bite cases, is among the awardees.
