"I draw inspiration from small things, even nature -
it was in thinking about how grass doesn't grow under a pine tree did I come up with a new technique of skin grafting. More recently, while understanding skin lines, I became curious about nature’s golden spiral pattern and came up with a new plastic surgical technique."
Skin wears its health like a badge for all to see, everything is unashamedly laid bare. Here it is, an organ that once developed disparate competing colours to help rebuild a species, and in doing so, displays this simple fact: evolution and skin colour are not words we visit in a book or museum; they are windows to the soul of our natural origins.”

I like working with kids from disadvantaged backgrounds and schools – I teach them creative writing and build school libraries. I give up a day a week for work in literacy. In Auckland alone there are 99 low-decile schools. That is frightening. For many of these ‘brown and poor’ kids it isn’t real to be a doctor or lawyer. I am hoping just to change the life of one kid by inspiring him or her."
Dr. Sharad Paul's Foundation has run literacy programmes for over a decade including the construction of mobile library for economically-disadvantaged schools.
"If we can encourage even one child to reach for greatness, the mission will have been worthwhile" - Dr. Sharad Paul.
