In the free world too, bias is a given. But Dr Rajendra Badgaiyan has decided to stand up to it. A psychiatry student and acclaimed assistant radiology professor at Harvard Medical School (HMS)-sponsored Massachusetts General Hospital, he’s filed a lawsuit against HMS, the US department of veteran affairs and Dr Grace Mushrush, his supervisor and Harvard’s South Shore Psychiatry Residency Training Programme director, alleging four years of racial discrimination and professional sabotage during his residency. Badgaiyan alleges Mushrush nixed his psychiatry practice license by providing "false and derogatory information" depriving him of an important fellowship.
