My first job after a residency at JPGMC was in 1969: BMH Parsi General Hospital, Karachi.

One of the most gorgeous, well-organized and well-kempt neighborhoods I have ever seen was Parsi Colony, Karachi.

In those days, the city was inhabited by 250 thousand Parsis who were great citizens by all means. Parsi doctors, dentists, engineers, architects, businessmen, entrepreneurs, civil servants, teachers, educationists, dancers, intellectuals, broadcasters, fashion designers were among the best in the world.

Dr. Roenton B. Khambatta was a renowned cardiologist in the Commonwealth countries and his younger brother Dr. Kershaw B. Khambatta used to travel between Pakistan-India-England to conduct the most complicated surgeries. I still feel honored to have been their student at the Parsi General Hospital.
