Wait!

I was recently chatting with an elderly gentleman of my 'sangh' (the community of people who belong to the same temple). He asked me what I was doing these days. I said I was working at NephroPlus, a chain of dialysis centers.

"Oh! so you have dedicated your entire life to this cause?"

I immediately clarified that I was getting a salary and this was a for-profit organization.

Yesterday's Business Line also attributed a lot of things to me that are not entirely true. They said that I started NephroPlus after years of fighting kidney disease. It was actually Vikram Vuppala who started NephroPlus. I was with him in spirit from Day 1. But it was totally his baby. I supported him. I officially joined part time last year and full time a few weeks back. To Vikram's (and the other co-founder Sandeep's) credit, they involved me right from the beginning so that they could get the patient's perspective while setting this up.

I loved the time spent there as this was very close to my heart. I finally answered my calling and joined the company. But this is a for-profit organization and I get a salary and sweat equity. So, its not like I have sacrificed anything for this or am giving up anything for this. So, please don't accuse me of these honorable things!

Hello, I'm Kamal from Hyderabad, India. I have been on dialysis for the last 13 years, six of them on PD, the rest on hemo. I have been on daily nocturnal home hemodialysis for the last four and half years. I can do pretty much everything myself. I love to travel and do short weekend trips or longer trips to places which have dialysis centers. Goa in India is a personal favorite. It is a great holiday destination and has two very good dialysis centers.
