Lately, I have loved finding awesome nuggets like this because this country needs positive stories. We can’t live on bullcrap political hopes because it’s a game and they are against the middle class from the jump, so this is one of my guilty pleasures!
Dr. Subodh Kumar Singh came from extremely modest origins and has achieved outstanding success. His father, Gyan Singh, passed away when he was only 13 years old in 1979, and it devastated him.
Following his father’s death, the circumstances forced his family to live in abject poverty.
“I used to sell handmade soap with my older brothers, and I was often humiliated when I inquired about the payment of our debts,” he recounted. Singh’s fortunes started to turn around in 1982, when his elder brothers chipped in to help him pay for his medical school admission examinations.
Singh recieved a Master of Surgery degree from Banaras Hindu University in 1988, followed by a Master of Chirurgiae in plastic surgery from the same institution in 1991, and an M.B.B.S (an international medical degree comparable to an M.D. in the United States), all from Banaras Hindu University.
Dr. Singh started the GS Memorial Plastic Surgery Hospital in 2001 in honour of his father with the goal of providing state-of-the-art reconstructive cosmetic surgery to low-income patients at a very reasonable cost. Dr. Singh is a board-certified plastic surgeon.
The hospital formed a partnership with Smile Train, a non-profit organization that performs corrective surgery on infants who have cleft lips and palates.
“Since 2008-09, we have performed more than 4,000 free cleft operations every year as part of this effort,” Dr. Singh said. To date, more than 32,000 free cleft surgeries, as well as thousands of additional cleft surgeries, have been conducted at his institution under his direction and supervision.
According to Dr. Singh, “with every cleft kid who has come to me, I have pictured that young Subodh, who lost his father when he was only 13,” who grew up without a father when he was only 13 years old.”
“My father Gyan Singh and mother Giriraj Kumari (who passed away last year) instilled in me a desire to help the needy and live ethically in their lives. I believe God chose me to be a cosmetic surgeon rather than a businessman in order for me to serve a divine purpose,” said Singh.
In addition, Dr. Singh and his colleagues have done over 6,000 free severe burn operations. His work influenced the production of Burned Girl (2015), a National Geographic documentary that garnered worldwide honors for chronicling the life of Ragini, a nine-year-old girl whose childhood burns were surgically repaired by Dr. Singh.
Ragini was treated by Dr. Singh.
