“It all started with my great great grandfather Lala Jeevanmal Sabharwal, who was a station master in Lahore. One day he heard Gandhiji talking about health and education. Inspired by Gandhiji’s speech about health and education he then insisted that all his four sons would study medicine.”
That’s how, in 1919, the family’s first doctor — Dr Bodhraj — was born.
Dr Bodhraj then decreed that every subsequent generation had to study medicine. And every son had to marry a doctor bride. After the partition, the family moved to Delhi and opened five more hospitals, each bearing the name of the patriarch of the family — “Jeevan”.
