Bhagwant Singh Virdi (1960 - 1963)

I was born in a village in the Jalandhar district of Panjab on 19th June 1946. In January 1951, we left India. My mother, my older brother, my younger sister and I joined our father in Nairobi.Though my family circumstances were humble, I had a happy and contented childhood. My parents were devout Sikhs and instilled good moral values in us from a very young age.

I attended City Primary School till Standard 4 and then transferred to Juja Road Primary in 1957. After the KAPE, I joined ESS in January 1960. The 4 years at ESS were certainly the most formative and probably the happiest years of my life. ESS gave me the solid foundation I needed for my personal development and future career. In 1964 I proceeded to India for higher education in Medicine and in 1971, completed my medical degree course and qualified as a doctor.

I arrived in England in July 1972 and have worked in the National Health Service eversince. Following postgraduate training in the secondary sector, I became a General Practioner in August 1976. I retired from full time practice in December 2007 and have been working part-time since.

I am married to Narinder, who was born in Dar es Salaam, and we have two sons and 2 grandchildren. I look forward to the Reunion, meeting and hearing from my ESS colleagues.
