I interacted with Dr. Dinesh Chandra for the very first time, by sending a random Whatsapp message to him around 2.30 A.M. (post-midnight) in Jan 2018. I was seeking his assistance for a friend who was to be operated for a dissection of the aorta the next day. Little had I expected that he would reply fifteen minutes later, stating that he was going to be part of the operating team.... wow !! This was a huge coincidence, but perhaps fate had destined that we should meet in this manner. I could interact with him on quite a few occasions during the next 10-12 days and found him to be extremely professional, cooperative, competent, knowledgeable and calm even under the stressful situation, which is a lovely quality for any person, especially a surgeon conducting such critical operations. I wish him all success.
