Somasundaram Subramanian. Indian talent with the Russian soul
HED magazine continues to publish the interviews with the alumni of Russian and Soviet universities held by the Global Alumni Alliance.
The new issue of the first multilingual magazine presents the talented surgeon, supervisor of international educational and research projects whose name is well-known in the world of medicine. Doctor Soma – that's what his colleagues, friends and patients call him – is a talented surgical oncologist who has been saving people’s lives for many years.
What influenced his career choice, who was his role model, what can charity be like, and why is cancer not a sentence? Somasundaram Subramanian, the guest of the Alumni Russia media project, Indian talent with the Russian soul will tell you about it.
People sometimes ask me, "Doctor, why are you doing all this? What do you want with them?" The answer is simple. I believe that if I help young and smart people, I can massively augment my work. How many patients will I be able to help alone? As you know, one soldier does not make a battle. We must have an army of specialists. And I am creating this army.
Russia is a fascinating country. To understand it, you should come here and learn Russian. Many people following this way want to stay here or become civilian ambassadors of Russia all over the world. That's essential. The vast majority of Soviet and Russian graduates who studied in Russian are patriots of the Soviet Union and Russia.
The Alumni Russia media project is implemented by the Global Alumni Alliance supported by the Presidential Grants Foundation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia, federal agencies Rossotrudnichestvo and Rosmolodezh.
