I am a psychiatrist in private practice in India. I have my own hospital called Manasa at Rajahmundry, This is the first private psychiatric hospital for the neighboring four districts, established in 1980. I have treated more than 1,33,000 new psychiatric cases and 10 times that number old or follow-up cases during these 38 years. My hospital is a Janatha hospital meant for treating middle class people. On an average, I see 10 new cases and 90 old cases per day as out patients, in addition to the in-patients of my hospital licensed for 50 beds. I have been honoured with Dr. DLN Murthy Oration Award (2017) and Dr. J.K. Trivedi Life Time Achievement Award (2018), the highest and the most prestigious Awards given by the 7000-membered Indian Psychiatric Society. I am the first psychiatrist from Telugu speaking States to receive these awards in the 70 years history of Indian Psychiatric Society.
