Srinivasan Damal Kandalai Social work
It was 34 years ago that Srinivasan, an MBA graduate, who once ran businesses dealing with petroleum and FMCG products, joined hands with a doctor friend to set up medical facilities for the poor. Though it functioned from a small shed, it still was a progress from the ‘10 paise hospital’ that he ran with his doctor friends who sat under a tree on Sundays to treat poor. This went on to become a multi-disciplinary, super-specialty facility in Tambaram, Hindu Mission Hospital. He is also involved in the operation of several other organisations, including Valluvar Gurukulam.
