The website “Caring for India” is run by me, KIRAN KUMBHAR. I am a medical doctor (BJ Medical College, Pune) and health policy graduate, and currently a PhD student at Harvard University, studying the history of medicine and history of science. I have been writing about healthcare, history, and culture in India for the past several years, with contributions to the Times of India, HuffPost, Wire, Scroll, Swaddle among others. My PhD topic is the history of trust and distrust in biomedical doctors in post-independence India.
