A medical professional from 1960, Dr. Shrivastava was inducted quite early into the medical education in a reputed medical college. He worked with sincerity and conscience as Professor, Principal and Dean. His main love was undergraduate and postgraduate medical teaching. He was awarded plenty of brickbats and bouquets in his endeavours to contain horrendous incidences of group rivalries in the campus. Thankfully, he succeeded in managing both university and institutional affairs with ingenuity. He visited Norway, Switzerland and the U.K. to study the quality control of drugs in reputed pharmaceuticals like Roche, Sandoz etc. Later, his love for teaching medicine induced him to accept professorial assignments in other medical institutions. He is an avid lover of music and tennis. His crusade against political and social misdemeanours has won him more friends than foes insocial media.
