Hi, I’m Dr.Mani

Heart surgeon. Author. Fund raiser. Social entrepreneur.

Dr.Mani - Heart surgeon. Author. Fund raiser.

I write and sell ebooks to help raise money that sponsors life-saving operations for children born with heart defects.

Heart surgery is expensive. Many patients from poor families cannot afford the cost of treatment. So I try to fund these operations. This was the simple idea that drove an online adventure that started in 1996.

Since then, my efforts have funded heart surgery in 150+ children. My ambitious mission – make high quality heart health care accessible and affordable to every Indian child.

My short ebook 47 Hearts tells you all I learned while launching my non-profit to follow a dream.

I also love to read, write and travel. My latest project is the Heart Book Club.

And to keep up with what I’m up to at the present moment, see this page.
