once we arrived in India in 1951, the ‘old challenge hands’ suggested us to ‘listen, study and certainly not convey an opinion’. yet we discovered an excessive amount of desire round us. very quickly in any respect we have been keen on extending Frank’s paintings as a health practitioner on the Holdsworth Memorial medical institution to tasks within the outlying components. the appearance of ‘Dapsone’ (in 1950) as an efficient remedy for leprosy made it attainable for our crew to rehabilitate leprosy victims and essentially remove leprosy from neighborhood districts. With support at domestic from an ayah, prepare dinner and mali, i used to be capable of tackle different tasks in addition, bringing bore wells and cottage industries to drought-stricken villages that had formerly suffered standard famines, and aiding within the resettlement of Tibetan refugees in within reach Bylakuppe.
