Mumbai Mirror’s well-known sexpert who shared his witty and educational sexual advice, Dr. Mahinder Watsa passed away at the age of 96. Netizens share heartfelt condolences.

The famous sexpert from Mumbai Mirror‘s column ‘Ask the Sexpert’, Dr. Mahinder Watsa passed away on Monday at the age of 96. In times when sex education wasn’t available and any discussion about sex was considered to be an even bigger taboo, Dr. Watsa tried his best to educate people about sexual health with his witty and informative replies.

Dr. Watsa left his practice to devote his time to counselling and education in the early 1980s. He began his career as a columnist in the 1960s, dispensing medical advice in a women’s magazine. The organisation Family Planning Association of India (FPAI) in 1974 started India’s first sex education, counselling, and therapy centre after Dr. Watsa proposed that a sexual counselling and education program should be introduced in the country. His demise led to people sharing their gratitude for his lifelong work and for helping so many young and old people with important and necessary guidance about sexual health.

Here’s how people reacted to the sad demise of Dr. Mahinder Watsa:

Thank you and RIP, Sir.
