Dr Rolson Sandeep, 34, is a young doctor who is full of ideas to revolutionise Indian healthcare.

He followed a childhood hero to become one of India's top cranio-maxillo-facial surgeons.

Today, his hero, Dr Paul Salin, the head of Narayana's canio-maxillo-facial department, has also become Dr Rolson's mentor.

During our previous visit, Dr Rolson had moved mountains to ensure his patient, Rajeshwari, got the free facial reconstruction surgery that she badly needed. Two years later, we return to see where Dr Rolson's ideas have taken him, and find that he continues to be a champion for his patients.
