Mangaluru, July 29, 2015: The Federation of Indian Rationalists’ Association has arranged a face-to-face meet with eminent anatomist and well-known researcher Dr Arunachalam Kumar at Besant College in the city on August 1 from 5 pm to 7pm.
Dr Arunachalam Kumar, a former dean of KSHEMA and presently Professor of Anatomy at Kanachur Medical College, has been a rationalist since many decades and is also the founder member of Dakshina Kannada Rationalists Association since 1976. Dr Kumar who has been recently diagnosed with cancer, through this interaction, would try to dispel the myth that even rationalists would resort to interventions from the so called supernatural or any sort of ‘therapy’ during personal crisis.
The organisers have requested Dr Arunachalam Kumar’s students, friends and admirers who would like to interact with him to make it to the meeting. At the same time participants have also been requested to avoid bouquets, garlands or any such activity that would expose Dr Kumar to infections.
