  1. Dr Yadava has been endowed with gifts from God.
    People say he has long fingers.
    He operated on me twelve years ago and I am still hail and hearty , climbing mountains.

  2. Congratulations Dr. Yadav for your achievement n for ur work in Almira.

  3. How and why Cardiac Surgeons are awarded frequently, while it is fully understood that nothing is possible without the active participation of the Anaesthetist . Never ever any anaesthetist has been honoured . This speaks of volumes of rackets and connections which exist in deciding for awards and title distributions . They promote themselves and highlight self services . These awards need to be scraped as no honest approach is applied to decide the fate of these awards . There are many cardiac surgeons who are seen frequently on page three of news papers but they are proposed for awards as if they are Hollywood or Bollywood stars for awards .

  4. Heartiest congratulations. A moment of immense pride for all of us
