“The significance of the building lies in the thing which it houses. The building is only a shell. Within the shell should lie a living mollusc, a collective creature that is expected from time to time to form a pearl of great price.” - Wilder Penfield.

This enigmatic photograph was taken of the young Ramamurthi inside the main theater at the Institute of Neurology, General Hospital Madras Medical College in the late fifties or sixties. He is in theater dress and is referring to the first edition of the Introduction to Stereotaxis with an  Atlas More Details of the Human Brain edited by G Schaltenbrand and P Bailey published in 1959.

The legacy of Sherrington and Penfield was carried on by him with a rare enthusiasm and led him to establish and progress the specialties of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Neurosciences in Asia. His legacy endures and continues to inspire us.

This “Collective Creature” that he created and fostered has created many a priceless pearl.
