This oncologist and a mother of two is a firm follower of Vedanta and believes in conscious living. She explains, “An Oncologist’s day at the office is one of the hardest professions in the world. You need to constantly maintain your zen and you can’t let anything affect your judgment and your personal life. Vedanta has helped me maintain this equilibrium and hence, it has made me a better doctor. This conscious living has given me a purpose to aid and serve others.”
