I was born in Nairobi and enjoyed my initial learning at the famous Eastleigh Secondary.
After schooling, I went to universities in Kenya, Germany and London to become an ophthalmologist. I worked for almost 23 years for the Norwegian Association of the Blind, a WHO arm, as their International Project Director and Resident Ophthalmologist. My work took me to Sudan, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. I was a lecturer in two universities and an External Examiner for the Masters Programme at Nairobi University. I came to the UK in 2004 and am currently working in the NHS as an ophthalmologist.
I have been President and District Governor of the Rotary Club International. I was awarded two Rotary Paul Harris Awards and an IAPB award in Berlin for my work with the under-privileged communities in Africa.
I have pleasant memories of Eastleigh Secondary School - especially good teaching, good friends and an exquisite atmosphere! I have travelled around the world and have always pleasantly remembered Mr Shant, Mr ‘disciplined’ JES Jones and in fact, all the teachers at ESS.
I am married to Gurvinder and we have two children (one married) and both work in the financial sector in London. I love life, enjoy good company and indulge in music and cooking, both a great relaxation for me!
At this reunion, I hope to bump into many old friends, ‘recognise’ and renew friendships. A great opportunity for us all! I commend the management.
