Since 1920 each member of this Delhi family has been an MBBS doctor
What happened: The Sabharwal family of Delhi has got a rare distinction of being the only family which is reported to have every single member of theirs a doctor for the past five generations. The Delhi family history is quoted as follows, “It started with their great grandfather Lala Jeevanmal Sabharwal who was a station master in Lahore.”
Details: The great grandfather’s inspiration came from Mahatma Gandhi, who talked about education being a pivotal point throughout his life. After that, Lala Jeevanmal decided to make each of his sons a doctor and advised them to make their heirs doctors too.
Another interesting factor: While quoting the development, a local publication wrote, “Every son had to marry a doctor. The family later moved to Delhi and opened many hospitals, each having the name of Jeevan.” At the same time, it has been said that the family aims to have it as a public service and not a job.
