Goyle after graduating from a medical college had joined the Indian Air Force
as a medical officer in which he served for over twenty years. This gave him an
opportunity to serve across the country and even abroad, including Africa.
After saying good bye to the service, he settled in active private practice. He
always had in mind to write something outside the profession, but the demands
of his medical profession hardly left any time to do so. Ultimately, on
retiring from a long career, he got the time to pen down “Pollens are Colour
Blind” using his personal knowledge of the life in the dark continent. He now
lives in New Delhi with his wife.
