Beyond the operating theatre
Outside the operating theatre he is a trained percussionist having played at numerous local gigs. Professor Hindocha is also a keen sportsman having gained black belt in Kosho Ryu Kenpo, which has provided him with a great deal of self-discipline.
For the past 5 years Professor Hindocha has actively raised money for children coming from deprived backgrounds in Mauritius, something that is close to his heart.
