Great contribution

This refers to M Ashraf’s article on Prof. M S Khuroo. I first time met Dr. Khuroo in 1962. A lean-thin, shy and silent teenager with the typical Soopori accent absorbed on a cadaver on the dissecting table, unmindful of the pungent formalin smell and colorful feminine gender around! Desire for learning was evident in the ravine depths of his eyes. That is why Dr. Khuroo is where he is today. Those days modern lab facilities essential for research were a distant dream and our newly purchased ECG machine used to be under lock and key with an access to our highly skilled professors only. Exploring Hepatitis E in the villages of North Kashmir was like making a tunnel from Qazigund to Banihal in the Himalayas of Kashmir and Dr. Khuroo made it possible for the present day scientists to benefit from his research. That is why Dr.Khuroo is known in the GI medicine internationally that we as a nation should be proud of. His visionary contribution in SKIMS is shadowed by scores of physicians trained under his guidance.
Kashmiri scientists and scholars are scattered all over the world that have made name and fame. Dr.Khuroo’s desire to return to his native Kashmir speaks volumes of his genuineness and love for his homeland.
