KOLKATA, India-- His relentless fight might have taken away the 'untouchable shield' from doctors guilty of medical negligence, but Indian American doctor Kunal Saha insists there are miles to go to cleanse the Indian healthcare system - plagued by corruption and inefficiency.

Shuttling between the US and Kolkata, veering from one court to another and taking on the might of a corrupt administration and battling his own occupational fraternity, Saha's fight for his beloved wife Anuradha is the stuff of a Bollywood film where justice eventually pervades over all evil.
