HER arrival in the country early this week did not catch the attention of many people.
And little did Fiji know that she had made an emergency trip with much-needed medical supplies to keep heart and brain surgeries going.
Her emergency mission started at 11am on Tuesday (India time) or 7am local time, when she received a call from her husband, Professor Manu Munibhargav, who was already in Fiji.
Her instructions were to gather medical supplies and hop on to the next available flight to Fiji where surgeries being conducted by doctors from Sahyadri Hospitals in India might stop if the medical supplies did not arrive.
Being Sahyadri's financial controller for the Fiji project and a major stakeholder of Sahyadri Pacific Specialty Hospitals Limited, Anjali Munibhargav did not hesitate because she knew too well that lives were at stake.
"I got the list of medicines and disposables required like injections and I started moving. I got whatever was available as the supply was required," she said in an interview with this newspaper.
"The Health Ministry in Fiji gave me the immigration and customs clearance the same time to bring the supplies in from India."
Mrs Munibhargav said she made a four-hour trip by road from Pune to Mumbai to catch a flight to Singapore enroute to Fiji.
From Singapore, she caught a flight to Melbourne and then to Fiji, arriving at Nadi International Airport at 6am on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after receiving the emergency call.
Since she could not get any domestic flight, she travelled by road from the airport to Suva and arrived at the CWM Hospital at 11am, just in time for the start of the surgeries at midday.
Asked about her emergency dash, she said: "It happens some times. It's a difficult thing but life is more important than the tiring bit of things.
"Basically it's teamwork. I saw all the patients and they are so happy. It's a good thing that I brought the supplies or else the surgeries would have stopped if I didn't arrive on time," said Mrs Munibhargav.
Prof Manu Munibhargav, the project co-ordinator of the mission, said the surgeries would not have continued if the supplies had not arrived on time.
Mrs Munibhargav's emergency dash enabled the team of doctors from Sahyadri Hospitals to successfully complete their mission on Friday.
