Doctor’s tale of travel and volunteering

Born in a village in West Bengal, India, Biku Ghosh worked as a specialist surgeon in the U.K. for more than 40 years. In his “spare” time he traveled spent 65 years visiting more than 75 countries in all seven continents; he even worked as a volunteer in 12 of those countries.
   His latest book, Around the World in 65 Years is a fascinating account of his travels that took him plunging into Antarctic water, giving away a proxy daughter in a North Pole wedding, climbing Kilimanjaro and swimming with the giant whale shark. This book is a testament to the human spirit and its warmth, even in despair, witnessed and shared during volunteering in 12 countries on five continents including Ethiopia, Bolivia, Guatemala, Mongolia and Sierra Leone. As a result of his contribution to healthcare in developing countries, he was awarded an OBE.
