Dr. Yatendra Chandra Rai Vora was born on 25 th August 1928 in Nagarvada, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, in an illustrious family. The British Government conferred the title of Dewan on his grandfather (hence the Rai in his name) for exemplary services. His father was a renowned medical practitioner.

Dr. Vora completed his MBBS from SMS Medical College, Jaipur, in 1947 and had the honour of being an alumnus of the first batch of the college. Subsequently, he completed his DA from BJ Medical College, Ahmedabad, and MD from Mumbai. He joined the Department of Anaesthesiology in RNT Medical College, Udaipur, in the late 1950s and retired as Head of the Department in 1983. During his tenure, he developed the department from scratch and gave dignity and recognition to the specialty in this remote, tribal belt of Rajasthan. He was a great teacher, an academician and a strict administrator and disciplinarian, who knew how to control and command respect from the surgeons in the operation theatre.

He was an upright and humble human being for whom patient care and welfare was of utmost importance. After retirement, he continued with his private practice till the age of 80 years. Following a brief illness, he breathed his last on 10 th November 2011. In his death, the Anaesthesia fraternity of Rajasthan has lost a "Father" figure.

May God rest his soul in peace and provide strength to his family members and friends to bear this irreparable loss.
