Dr. Arpit Bansal – A Cancer Surgeon having seen over 900 Bird Species

“I am a Cancer and Advanced Laparoscopic surgeon, and work as Director of Multispecialty 200 bedded Hospital in Allahabad. I did my MBBS from Mumbai and MS from Nagpur in 2009. I am also a spiritual person by heart and a Kundalini Reiki Master and Advanced Yoga practitioner. In the COVID pandemic, I did a lot of free consultations for COVID-19 patients both online and offline. In India only, I have seen and photographed 866 species of birds to date and still counting. I have also seen and clicked over 250 species outside India. I haven’t done a professional course for bird watching. I started it 11-12 years ago and learned it by following Indian birds and posts related to them on Facebook. I also read the book “Birds of the Indian Subcontinent” by Grimmett. These things helped me and today I can recognize over 1300 Birds of India. My dream and passion in life are to photograph each and every bird on mother earth. All of the 1400+ species found in India are my target. Along with the birds of India, I wish to explore birds across the globe which are over 10,000 species. Watching all of them in their natural habitat and capturing their craziness through my camera is my dream! Having said that, Owls possess a special place in my heart. There are 37 different owls in India, and I am proud to say that I have watched most of them out in the wild. Only 6 of them are left to capture in my camera.” Dr. Arpit Bansal
