Dr KK Aggarwal, Editor in Chief eMedinewS and IMA News in conversation with Dr AK Kriplani, Director and Head of the Dept of Minimal Access, Bariatric and GI Surgery at the Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon
 
Dr AK Kriplani has been honored with Dr BC Roy National Award for the year 2009 under the category of Best talents in encouraging the development of specialties in different branches in Medicine.
 
Dr KK: What are your feelings on receiving the award?
 
Receiving the award is a great feeling and makes me more humble. It motivates me to be more dedicated to the profession that has given me recognition. However, I know that many persons have contributed to my achievements. My parents, who have inspired me and passed on the social and ethical values of the highest standards by example; my spouse and kids who have made personal sacrifices to help me fulfil my dreams; my teachers who have devoted their time to guide, groom and shape me and my colleagues and team members without whom I wouldn’t be what I am today and my juniors who have energised me. I take this opportunity to thank all of them and dedicate this award to them.
 
Dr KK: What about your family. Tell us something about them.
 
My family has been very understanding and supporting. My wife, Padma Shri Prof Dr Alka Kriplani is Head, Dept of Obst and Gynae at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi and is herself a great academician and President of FOGSI. Her support has been unconditional. Both my daughters are postgraduate doctors and are not only understanding but very encouraging.

New Delhi, June 2, 2016: Actor Razak Khan died at the age of 62 yesterday. With another life lost at a relatively young age due to a sudden cardiac arrest, the Heart Care Foundation of India and Indian Medical Association urged the medical fraternity to raise awareness. A sudden cardiac arrest has some basic warning signs and it is crucial that every person above the age of 30 is made aware about them. Death due to a sudden cardiac arrest can also be reversed within 10 minutes if hands only CPR 10 is performed on the patient. It is an easy to learn technique, and must be taught to the entire population at large.
