Tenth Mahaveer Awards Brochure released by Justice
Sri. M N Venkatachaliah, former Chief Justice of India.
 
'Service above Self' is how his work can be described. Because his single-minded focus to alleviate the social stigma attached to birth defects saw him overcoming health setbacks and turning them into an advantageous situation. When a car accident left him paralyzed on the right side, he enhanced his cosmetic and plastic surgical skills on his road to recovery, so that he could continue his life's mission. With his left hand wielding the scalpel, soon he was back doing what he was best at - setting right the faces of his brethren.
 

He is unfazed by the loss of his sweet voice that enthralled music lovers to cancer and a heart that functions at 17% its capacity after three surgeries. A wheelchair is all that he needs for his deft fingers to work magic. He spends close to six months in India so as to carry out as many surgeries as possible. The rest of the year he practices in the USA to financially facilitate the surgeries in India. His gratuitous corrective surgeries, that number close to 80,000, not only change their faces but their lives as well.

The Bhagwan Mahaveer Foundation is pleased to confer the Mahaveer Award in the field of Education and Medicine on Dr. Sharadkumar Dicksheet, in recognition of his service and hopes that it would inspire others to emulate him.

2) Dr. S S BADRINATH

Dr. S. S. Badrinath's name is synonymous with vision restoration. A doctor by profession, a humanitarian at heart, a small step taken by him has brought about a silent revolution, benefiting lakhs of people. A visionary, he established the non-profitable, Medical Research Foundation in 1979, which has since been doing yeoman service in vision care. Sankara Nethralaya, the hospital wing of the Foundation has grown into an ophthalmic center par excellence, attracting patients from all over the country and the world.

Gaining knowledge and experience in his chosen field, Dr. Badrinath came back from the USA to serve the needy here. Under his tutelage, the Foundation has grown in its stature with eighteen offshoots such as the Ophthalmological Medical and Post Graduate Centre, Vision Research Foundation, CU Shah Eye Bank, Elite School of Optometry etc. The hospital serves rural areas through its 'Outreach Camps' organized twice a month.
 

Dr. Badrinath has single-mindedly popularized eye donation in India. His persistent efforts have borne fruit, with many citizens donating their eyes, thus giving vision to those lacking it. More than 5800 people have benefited by these eye donations. Besides, he has pioneered 'Vitreo Retinal Surgical Practice' in our country. He is also credited with introducing 'Optometry' as a special stream of study.

His principles have helped Sankara Nethralaya retain its non-commercial approach to ophthalmic care. The hospital spends close to Rupees One Crore a year to treat those in the fringes of society. The Bhagwan Mahaveer Foundation appreciates his service, which shines as a beacon of light in the paths of many.

The Bhagwan Mahaveer Foundation is pleased to confer the Mahaveer Award in the field of Education and Medicine on Dr. S. S. Badrinath, in recognition of his service and hopes that it would inspire others to emulate him
