Bio: Dr Manoj Pandey, Professor of Surgical Oncology at Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi India. Schooled in the philosophy of Pt. Madan Mohan Malviya, the founder of Banaras Hindu University, i.e. selfless service for the benefit of mankind and care of the health needs of the needy, he has been trained as a surgeon. His philanthropic approach to life, the uncertain and incurable aspects of cancer as a disease and his natural compassion and desire to explore the unexplored and treat the non treatable provided him with a valuable insight to discover a career in surgical oncology. Following the example of his own teachers and guides, he has tried his best with outstretched and guiding hands and has invested immeasurable personal and professional resources into training and mentoring of students, research scholars and upcoming surgeons to benefit them and help quality capacity building for the country. Dr. Pandey has interests in photography and writing. His tangential thinking makes his writing different from others and has a wide range. His collections of poems are published as a book "anjane pal" and two other "yathathaty" and "savsatyyan" will be available soon. His first fiction novel "Angskandh"is scheduled for release in March. He is also working on couple of travel logs and coffee table books to showcase his photography.
