NRI Canadian obstetrician Asha Goel,

Son Sanjay:

  • "I am the only son," said Sanjay, who is used to the rigours of international travel. he, as president of a cruise travel company, my mother Asha Goelshe as a devoted obstetrician at Headwaters Health Care Centre in Orangeville, Ont.Canada
  • "This awful crime has devastated us," says husband Dr. S. K. Goel, a surgeon at Headwaters.
  • "Asha is deeply missed by the community here," he says. "She was a very fine doctor, and always took the time to care for her patients, friends and colleagues. They have collected thousands of signatures to help us."
  • Asha Goel grew up in Mathura, India, and spent her teenage years in Mumbai. She graduated from Topiwala National Medical College in Mumbai, and the family has set up a generous scholarship there in her name. The full scholarship will go to a deserving female student each year, and is designed to be self-funding in perpetuity.
  • Medicine is a cornerstone for the Goel family, which boasts 22 doctors. Asha Goel was chief obstetrician at Headwaters, where her husband is on staff as a surgeon. A particularly active obstetrician, Sanjay estimated his mother delivered more than 10,000 babies over her career. She also played a vital role in providing care to immigrant women in nearby Brampton. "Many of the patients she saw had not been to an obstetrician in many years."
  • Asha Goel was a strong woman, physically and spiritually, and was the only member of her immediate family to go on to postgraduate education, said Sanjay. Her word carried considerable weight, and she was often called upon for advice. "She was a person people turned to. She played a leading or pivotal role in facing family issues.
  • "My mother was an innocent woman, a doctor whose life was devoted to helping other people," says son Sanjay Goel. "It is unthinkable that anyone would want to harm her, much less as a large conspiracy as it now appears was involved. There are still many unanswered questions."
  • Sanjay, his two sisters, and their father surgeon Dr. S.K. Goel still wonder how a woman who brought thousands of lives into the world could have her own end so brutally.
