Medical College Admissions After they had recovered, from the scare of the Pre-University exams results, in the moving train, my Mum and Dad ran around like headless chicken, getting all my certificates in order for Medical College admissions . I was totally oblivious to all the prep and flurry. I just had a good holiday with my Annammal Patti in Senthiambalem and with all my cousins in my Uncle Chandy’s home in Kodukulanji. No one, least of all my Mum and Dad, asked me what I wanted to do, or where I wanted to go. They had all decided that I was going to do Medicine. I simply signed the admission forms, wherever they asked me to sign , whenever they asked me to sign. It was clear, that that they had no intention of going back to Singapore in a hurry . They were going back, only after I had been admitted in some Medical College in India.

If I got into CMC Vellore, sponsored by the SPG in Singapore, I was expected to go back to Singapore and work in The St. Andrew’s Hospital, the only functioning Mission Hospital associated with SPG Mission of Singapore. When I received a call from CMC , Vellore, to attend the 3 day Interview,  my Mum fell ill and could not travel. My Dad and I took the train to Katpadi, the Railway station closest to Vellore town.
