Dr. Murali Kantharaj, a gynaecologist, who served the people of Ambur and its surrounding areas for more than 40 years in her K.M. Hospital after working as a doctor for sometime in the Bethesda Hospital, Ambur, is no more. She passed away on Sunday, 9th December 2012. She was very popular among all sections of the people because of her dedicated service and friendly nature. She was undoubtedly a doctor par excellence. She was above caste and religious considerations. I have seen people rushing to her house even in the middle of night in emergency cases to get treatment from her without any hesitation and difficulty as she was so kind and treated patients with a missionary zeal - the likes of whom are no doubt rare. Her passing away is a great loss to the people in and around Ambur and more so to the Muslim community here with whom she enjoyed a very good reputation and friendship.

May her soul rest in peace and may God give her husband Dr. Kantharaj, children and other members of her family courage to bear this irreparable loss.
