Umesh Kumar is a dear friend of ours, who is a 60 years old bachelor living in Bangalore. He has been diagnosed with Lung Cancer in December 2019 and is currently critically ill.
Being a hail and healthy person who has never visited a hospital in his life, this diagnosis came as a shocker to all of us. This initially started as a lung infection, where one day he happened to collapse while climbing the stairs to his home in the evening. His neighbors immediately rushed him to the hospital near and his extended family members reached soon. Post tests done and treatment given for lung infection he was advised to take biopsy test. The report was given and the tumor was found to be malicious.
Umesh Kumar is a highly committed, compassionate and disciplined individual.He has dedicated major part of his life to impart life skills to underprivileged kids living in orphanage, apart from this he was a science enthusiast.
He believed in instilling curiosity and experimental mindset to kids through teaching every day wonders of science. If you have visited the Jawarharlal Nehru planetarium you couldn't have missed his enthusiastic presence and his passion to teach kids on science and its nuances leading kids to learn more on science and astronomy.
Being an avid star gazer himself, inspired all of us to look beyond in life.His teachers feedback book has such wonderful comments and accolades from parents which is clear reflection of this passion to educate kids.
He is a person who is always put social service before his personal needs. He and his extended family have doing their BEST and are in need of financial help to meet the expenses of his treatment.
