Nagpur: Dr Bal Swaroop Chaubey, the recipient of India’s fourth highest civilian award Padma Shri (2009), passed away on Saturday in Nagpur.

Dr B S Chaubey

Dr B S Chaubey, who retired as the dean of Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) Nagpur in 1992, often advised his fellow teachers, “A teacher is always a winner. He can never be a loser. Become a good teacher, read regularly and organize yourself with topic before going to students.”

The master physician who continued to treat patients even a couple of months before falling ill, attending his last patient on Dussehra day, always preferred to be known as a teacher. “I hope the government has honoured the teacher in me,” Dr B S Chaubey had said, after receiving the Padma Shri on April 15, 2009.

Dr Pradeep Mishra, who turned physician for his teacher and treated Dr Chaubey during his illness, said, “It is a privilege to be chosen to be the physician for a man thought to be the most admired among physicians… For most of us, he was our role model and the reason why we chose to stick to general medicine.” [Source: ToI]
