As a young doctor in the 1970s, he watched people who had travelled long distances, outside the cardiology department of the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi. He felt the need of making medical treatment more accessible, and so when he went back to his home town, Lucknow, he started working on setting up a centre for heart patients. The Lari Cardiology Centre has become a well-equipped and an accessible place for heart patients from all over Uttar Pradesh.
