He goes on to cite an interesting anecdote. “About four years ago, at Stockholm, when I got into a taxi, conversation with the driver led me to say that I was there to attend an eye conference in Sweden. To my surprise, he said he was looking for a doctor named Dr Amar Agarwal; little realising that I was the person he was referring to! When I did reveal it, he was quick to mention about his sister who needed a specialised treatment,” said Dr Amar, adding in a lighter vein that the driven gave him free rides throughout his stay! His four sons – Adil, Ashwin, Anosh and Ashar are doctors, who have taken the roles of CEO, Medical Director, Finance and Retina specialist steering Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital. The father is now content to play second fiddle. “They are running the company and two of my sons have MBA degrees from Harvard and Stanford. So they are best suited for the job,” said the proud father.
