On 5th September 1958 I was born in Delhi's Kasturba Hospital, on Janmasthmi day. I was seventh to be born in my family. We are nine brothers and sisters. We used to live in one bed room set in old Delhi ( Hauz Kaji). My father used to be an accountant. Being born on Janmasthmi I was named Krishan Kumar.
I did my schooling from ASVJ Higher Secondary School a government educational institution. ( Dr Mahesh Sharma, Dr Harsh Wardhan, Dr Ashok Walia, we are from the same school).

I did one year Zoology Honours from Deshbandhu college and then MBBS and MD from MGIMS Sevagram.

My life turned at Sevagram. I topped Nagpur university throughout, did my MD Medicine and came back to Delhi and Joined Moolchand Hospital under Dr K L Chopra father of Dr Deepak Chopra.

Got married in 1985 and Nilesh my son and Naina my daughter were born.

We started Heart Care Foundation of India in 1986, Navin C Nanda National institute of Echocardiography and Cardiac Research in 1987 and IJCP publications in 1991.

I joined Delhi Medical Association as Vice President in 1991, became President IMA NDB in 94-95, 2002-4, President Delhi Medical Association in 2005, Chairman IMAAMS in 2006, Honorary Finance Secretary IMA in 2007, Director IMA AKN Sinha Institute in 2008, Senior National Vice President IMA in 2014 and Honorary Secretary General in 2015.
