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.
