Maharashtra Governor C. V. Rao did the honours on Sunday night before dignitaries including NCP leader Sharad Pawar, former Chief Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, D.Y. Patil, Rahul Goyal and others.

Replying to the felicitations, Pradhan pledged to take forward the movement of affordable cancer treatment to the deprived sections of society and eliminate the "Sea of Sorrow" arising out of the lack of access to sophisticated health care.

Managing Trustee of Dhanvantari Medical Foundation Rahul Goyal provided an insight into the history behind the awards launched by his father, late cardiologist B.K. Goyal since 1971.

Trained at Mumbai's Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital and New York's Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, Pradhan currently functions at the Prince Aly Khan Hospital, P.D. Hinduja Hospital and Breach Candy Hospital of Mumbai, said the official.
