Bangalore, Karnataka, India:On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Dr. Kamini Rao, Medical Director, BACC Healthcare & Leading Gynecologist & Infertility Specialist was awarded the Swasth Bharat Samman, 2012, in the Gynecology Category, by Honourable Minister of Health and Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad at a ceremonious gathering of distinguished people from different walks of life .
On receiving the award, Dr. Kamini Rao, said, “Receiving this recognition is an honour which I am really proud of. If my work has somehow, made people’s lives a little better, then I feel like it has been a huge success. I have lived my passion, which has been giving the gift of a child to those unfortunate enough not to be able to have one on their own. The inability to bear a child is regarded as a curse, especially in India, where women still bear the brunt of social ostracism for something that very often is no fault of theirs. The joy that me and my team have brought to such couples is something that I cannot put down in words".
