Dr. Acharya completed her undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Medicine at the Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai... But the lady whom we all knew and admired for her strength and commitment, refused to be despondent and instead focused all her energy to make her department a sought-after one... She had many firsts to her credit, having established the first Department of Nephrology with dialysis and transplant facilities in Western India at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, the first postgraduate course in Nephrology in Western India and the first deceased donor transplant in India... She held the distinction of being the first lady nephrologist of India... In recognition of her contributions, the Indian Society of Nephrology and International Society of Nephrology conferred on her the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Pioneer Awardrespectively... For those who knew her more closely, she was ‘The Iron Lady’ with a reputation for discipline, a tough taskmaster and able administrator, a strong motivator in whose vocabulary the word ‘impossible’ did not exist... She maneuvered through the elephantine bureaucracy of public hospital to set up a model unit, giving evidence to the saying “Tough times do not last, tough people do”... A teacher of nephrology but an exponent of philosophy, teaching not only the science of nephrology but the Art of Living, instilling qualities like courage, integrity, punctuality, meticulousness, compassion, humanity and simplicity, she touched the lives of people around her... Her love for others knew no boundaries, encompassing all around her... Her students and their families felt her motherly protection, her patients experienced her humane touch... She dreamt the Impossible Dream and made it a reality.
