Dr Rajesh Khanna was born in Chandigarh and raised in Delhi.Tenant of doctors, had an influence on choosing a profession.Good school with excellent teachers who helped to guide us. The top from our class all chose medicine. Even though he got admission into five medical colleges including Maulana Azad ( MAMC), he opted for Jawaharlal Institute of Post graduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER), Pondicherry. During medical school he had a rotation in Ophthalmology. Dr RK was so fascinated by the colors in the eyes. Therefore I did a residency in King Edward Medical College, amongst the best in India.Next phase of life was very interesting and fulfilling. Dr RK got a teaching post in Terna Medical College and was appointed at the youngest consultant at Mahatama Gandhi Medical College. He started private practice in New Bombay. At that time in one of the lecture she was attending, he met a leading refractive surgeon from the United States. Talking to him he realized that how far advanced US was in that field. There was no such opportunity in India at that time. So he embarked on a mission to win a fellowship or advanced training in the United States. For this he had to write and pass a series of exams called USMLE. On overcoming that hurdle he was accepted into the University of Cincinnati for a Corneal and Refractive surgery fellowship.
