Dr Abhijeet Sonawane, lovingly known as the ‘Doctor for Beggars’ was himself forced down to be on the road to survive himself. When we picture a successful medical practitioner in his forties, we see air-conditioned clinics and luxury apartments. No doubt for most of us the prime incentive of a medical career lies in its lucrativeness and reputability. Unlike many doctors who would cut the corners to squeeze out a profit for themselves, Dr Abhijeet Sonawane exhibits the virtue of selflessness by giving himself the title of “Doctor for Beggars.” And he wears it proudly to ward-off society’s judgment against him. Passing up the comforts that come with his profession, he is bringing his stethoscope to the disease-prone, sprawling streets of Pune city.
