Dr Sobhanakumari

von Lars Mallwitz, 16. August 2019

Dr Sobhanakumari was already hugely empathetic even as a child. Even then, she says her greatest wish was to bring an end to human suffering.

Dr. Reshmi Chandran

The most notable thing about Dr. Reshmi is undoubtedly the warmth with which she cares for her patients. She has an incredible ability to sense a person’s mood in a matter of moments.

von Lars Mallwitz, 19. June 2018

For a long time we looked in vain for a general manager who would understand the needs of our clients and who could help shape our corporate social responsibility and exemplify this philosophy through their own day-to-day life. In 2017 we found the ideal recruit in Ajith Prassad. He is passionate about his contribution to(…)
