Why did Sadao Hoki go to America? Narrate his experiences there

Question: Why did Sadao Hoki go to America? Narrate his experiences there. [CBSE (AI) 2012, 2013]

Answer: Sadao’s education was his father’s chief concern. So he had been sent at twenty-two to America to learn all that could be learnt of surgery and medicine. He studied there for eight years and returned to Japan at thirty. Before his father died, Sadao had become famous not only as a surgeon but also as a scientist. He had great difficulty in finding a place to live in America because he was Japanese. The Americans were full of prejudice and it had been bitter to live in it, knowing himself to be superior to them. An ignorant and dirty old woman, at last, consented to house him in her miserable home. He found her repulsive to him even in her kindness. One of his American Professors and his wife were kind people. They were anxious to do something for their few foreign students. But their rooms were quite small, the food was very bad, the professor was a dull person and his wife was a silly talkative woman.
