Thanks Dr. Rabindranath!

Dr. Gopal Rabindranath is one of India's senior most nephrologists. He has travelled to different countries and knows some of the best renal healthcare teams across the world. Dr. Rabindranath has a keen interest in home hemodialysis and has a website dedicated to home hemodialysis training in India.

Dr. Rabindranath came to know about my home hemodialysis a few years back through the Fresenius team. During a visit to Hyderabad, he came home to see my setup. He was very encouraging. I have been in touch with him since then.

Dr. Rabindranath was instrumental in getting me some troubleshooting manuals for home hemodialysis which is an invaluable resource for me these days. He has also been pushing Fresenius for a home hemo training program to be started in India. One of the important inspirations for the home hemo program that I am attending currently is Dr. Rabindranath.

The Indian renal healthcare industry needs more people like Dr. Rabindranath to bring the best facilities and options to patients.

Thanks so much Dr. Rabindranath for all your help and support!

To Dr.Rabindranath

The Road Less Travelled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry you could not travel both
And be one traveler, long you stood
And looked down one as far as you could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, you kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
you doubted if you should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and YOU—
YOU took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
