[Dr. Mohan Singh cured my trachoma problem when I was a young teenager. I can still vividly remember how scary the examinations were whereupon he would jam his gigantic fingers into my eyes and flip the eyelids inside out. Since the tests or treatments had included the administration of an eye cream that dilated the pupils so I went “blind” every time I left his consultation room. Thank God I had my mother.]
