Message by President of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on the Inauguration of Divine Heart Hospital
“GOOD HEARTS TREAT THE AILING HEARTS”
My greetings to Honorable Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji, Prof. Srivastava, Cardiologists, Surgeons, Medical professionals and the distinguished guests. Honorable Vajpayee Ji has explained to me about the origin of this hospital, which has arisen due to the passion of societal service of Prof. Srivastava, who has over twenty years of service as consultant cardiac surgeon, postgraduate teacher and researcher in the specialty of cardio-vascular surgery. I am very happy to see that today the 25 beds hospital is transforming into a 100 beds hospital and in a few years time this will definitely graduate into a teaching and research institution for cardiology and cardiovascular & thoracic surgery.
A number of new hospitals are being established throughout the country for heart care. A unique need is to have doctors and paramedical staff with good hearts to treat the ailing hearts. We need helping hands to remove the pain and beautiful minds to give happiness to the patients.
May God bless you, your kindness will flow through your action, thousands and thousands of patients will be relieved of the heart pain and they will say “Thank You Doctor with a smile that means you are in God’s image.
May God Bless You
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
President of Republic of India
