Ill-Treatment

Kapil Nayar is a licenced Professional Counselor and is a soon-to-be Author, too.

 

Nayar's work delves deep into the corruption at the core of America's Privatized Healthcare System - but can he rock the boat enough to make a change?

It seems he already has.

Read about the trials and tribulations of Nayar's story of exposing the evil for-profit scheme behind one of the most trusted collective of drug rehabilitation programs in the United States.

Kapil Nayar’s parents immigrated to the US from India in the 1970’s to pursue their residencies for medical school, which culminated in his father becoming a surgeon, and his mother a psychiatrist.

 

He grew up as an American boy in a New Jersey suburb. Each year, the family travelled back to India to visit extended family, giving the child a broadened outlook--an awareness of poverty, sickness, privilege, and the inherent disparity among people. 

 

His father, Amrit, one of four children, was raised in a lower middle-class home in Delhi. He worked on the railroad and bicycled to and from work. Nayar’s mother, also one of four, was raised in a higher echelon by her father--a military captain and doctor with a family practice--and mother, a university professor of mathematics and English at a local women’s high school, later working as a physician’s assistant for Kapil’s grandfather. 

 

On their annual trips, the boy began to understand how differently his parents had grown up, what hurdles they had faced to get their education and to provide for their family.

 

On a trip to Shimla, India, when he was nine, Kapil remembers visiting a hill station in a mountain range. His father took them to lunch, and after the meal, looked at him and asked, 

 

“Kapil, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” 

 

He swiftly replied, “I want to be a waiter.”
