Dedication

Without the blessings and cooperation of these personalities Agnivesh.info would not have come to existence. My list of gratefulness and indebtedness towards the following personalities (in chronology of meeting) in the below photo collection.

My family, friends & patients
This effort is indebted to the support of my parents ,my wife Dr Jayalakshmi (www.theathreya.com) and our son Agnivesh who allow me to steal away our personal family time for...
medico social works for the welfare of doctors and patients. Without the support of my parents, my wife’s family, I could never have been able to travel length and breadth of kerala and India to gather and propagate precious knowledge.

If I am worthy for any one -I owe it to my parents VS Pillai & KC Indira Bai who taught me sincerity ,honesty, hard work , fearlessness , genuine compassion for the unpriveleged section of society & to  treat everyone with fairness.My sister Adv Sreeja has always been a cheerful part of my life.So is her husband SivaPrasad  Palliyath who has revived this website in digital manner.

This website is also an act of silent apology to all those patients whose health I could not improve even though not even one patient has been promised any cure even for a common flu by me in my professional life.

I have been successful in majority of occasions thanks to God and my mentors. I have been failure on many occasions thanks to my shortcomings as an ever improving clinician.

Many patients became like my extended family/friends like  spread in 92 nations as of 2018. I have tried my best to honour the time, money and faith someone invested on our family property.

I hope there are more learnings among doctors and lesser sufferings among patients.Every patient is a blessing or a lesson.So we must be thankful to each one of them.

Special gratitudes are made to my mother in law Dr Padmadevi who has been available for my wife and son when it mattered the most. Dr B Gireesh my father in law is admirable for his far sight and enthusiasm.Both of them cretaed a platform www.theathreya.com for us that we took to greater heights-thanks God. My brother in law Dr Jayakrishnan ,MD [Ayu ] ,his wife Dr Namitha add cheerup to family .I remain thankful to them too.
