I learnt this recently and was very sad .
Iam neither a professional colleague nor a close friend of Dr Haridas but as he would have for so many people he had made a touch in my life not to be forgotten .
Years back when myself and my wife were still a young couple bewildred at the storm that life gave us after a fairy tale romance and marriage had gone to CMC hospital vellore taking our young mentally challenged daughter Shilpa .
We had gone there to find a surgical remedy for her Ventricular Septal defect better known in common parlalnce as a hole in the heart .
this was one amongst her many problems .
VSD some times closes spontaneously but if big can produce ireversible changes leading to cardiac failure .
We did not want this to happen to our dear daughter .
Christian medical college is a well known tertiary referral centre in South India but the cardiolgist we saw there lacked the very organ which he was specialised in !
he discouraged us and asked us whether it was cost effective to do such a surgery for a mentally challenged child and also confirmed that as a policy CMCH would not waste thier time on such cases !
This angered us and hurt us a lot ,
she was our child and it was our decison and who was he to stop it .
so we went to Madras ( todays Chennai ) and met the very famous cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Cherian .
who was in vijaya hospital at the time .
cherian a man of few words sized the situation and also our hurt very quickly he also knew we would need some concessions for the surgery .
Dr Haridas was the cardiologist then in the same team and Dr Cherian entrusted us to him .
we still remember how Dr Haridas took us and showed us around and gave us words of encouragemnt The surgery too went off well .
After a few years Shilpa too left us .
years later Dr Haridas came to Kochi joining Amritha hospital and we met him once .
We told him about Shilpas loss and about the school we started in her memory ,he not only remebered Shilpa well but came to our school and donated a very useful physiotherpay equipment .
Dr Haridas was a brilliant student erudite scholar and emininet cardiologist and also son of the legendary Dr Krishnadas of Trivandrim Medical college .
it is unfortunate to hear Dr Haridas is no more .
May his soul rest in peace .
