Introductory Paragraph: About Vijay Karnik

Vijay Karnik is my grandfather and was born in India right before the start of World War II. After the war ended and India became its own independent country, Vijay was nine at the time.

Indian Independence was a great change for the citizens, for the British used India to pay for most of the war, this took a large toll on the citizens, because they were rationed, clothing was limited, and water was uncommon.

Now he is a practicing pathologist, meaning he studies the causes and effects of various diseases by inspecting patients’ tissues, urine, blood, saliva, etc. He lives and owns his pathology lab in Pune, a city in Northern India. He also does volunteer services, going to rural area in India, and holds women’s cancer detection camps.

He has three children, one of which is my father, and six grandchildren, my brother, my cousins, and I.
