Dr. Rajnish Juneja, Professor of Cardiology at AIIMS, New Delhi, is no more. He had a sudden cardiac arrest on April 10, 2018. The tragedy made all the more ironic by the fact that he was an accomplished electrophysiologist. He was also a pediatric cardiologist. One of the few dedicated pediatric electrophysiologists that India has had. He was a perfectionist to the core. His dedication to his patients (who often had complex congenital heart disease) was phenomenal. He was often the only recourse for many of these complex cases who developed complex arrhythmias. He would stand for hours attempting to ablate these mindboggling tachycardias. He was a sincere, truthful, and idealistic person. He could take on the entire establishment if he felt necessary and which he often did. He was a genuinely compassionate human being and a brilliant doctor. He was a pure soul and gem of a person. A rare human being with no showbiz or looking for any recognition. Dr. Juneja was truly a good and a humble soul in this materialistic world who touched many hearts. He had innate humility, always downplaying his true worth, had humor in cynicism, and was a warm friend.

Both he and his wife outdid each other in interest of poor patients. Tribal patients who came from Bastar often landed up at his house for boarding/lodging. He used to pay for their treatment as well. For years, he traveled to Bastar on his personal cost and stayed and treated patients there. He used his earned leave money to cover these costs. Mrs. Neeru Juneja runs a school for the underprivileged at their residence at AIIMS for decades.

To see him being so suddenly snatched away only reiterates how delicate is human life. The cardiology community has lost a friend, a teacher, a torchbearer, and a great academician. May his soul rest in peace.

On behalf of,

Department of Cardiology, AIIMS, New Delhi, India.
