Au revoir Krishi! A Tribute to a Great Surgeon Dr Krishnamohan Prabhu- a Graduate of KMC-Mangaluru: by Entrepreneur Sumit Rao, Mangaluru
Mangaluru: I am sad to inform all of you that Dr Krishnamohan Prabhu, the CEO and Founder of Prabhu’s Nursing Home in Moodbidri breathed his last today ( Tuesday, 11 January) morning due to cancer at the age of 55. He was a wonderful human being. A great surgeon who graduated from KMC Mangaluru in General Surgery (MBBS) in 1990, he was a great photographer who used to conduct classes for amateur photographers. He also used to be a conservationist, a wildlife enthusiast and one of the first to use the Internet way back through satellite phone connection to Bengaluru way back when there was no internet connection through phones or cable.
A nature enthusiast who was a part of the Worldwide fund for nature and an active member of wildlife first. He has worked in the game sanctuaries of Mudumalai, Bandipur, Nagarhole to name a few-He also had bought a plot of land along with Ashok Vardhan of Athree book centre at Bisile with the sole aim of conserving and nurturing wildlife and also built a small house to enable wildlife researchers to use it during their stay at the forest.
A very endearing man who was always there to help anyone during a medical emergency or any other time. He was also a blogger who used to blog about his photography and his camera work at remote places like Alaska and the Himalayas. He was a daily blogger and had tremendous insights into photography and the medical field too.
It’s time to bid adieu to a dear friend
Au Revior Krishi
