G.L.G. a four-year-old is a strong vigorous boy with apparently good health. His father is a victim of obstinate sinus trouble and his mother is becoming crippled with arthritis of long standing. This child has had rather frequent attacks with high fever, undue prostration, pharyngitis or bronchitis followed later by sinus symptoms similar to those of his father. Prescribing for the attacks did not prove sufficient and the much deeper remedy, Tuberculinum, was given in a series of potencies with the results that the past winter has been free from attacks and he has developed wonderfully for his age.
“It is gratifying to note that the homoeopathic practitioners of our country have been increasingly feeling the urgency of securing State recognition as a sine qua non of the future progress of this system of medicine in India. Representation have been made, we understand, to the Central Government for this purpose so that under the authority of the State it may develop along sound and healthy lines. We think it is time that both the Central and the Provincial Governments realised the need of bringing this important branch of healing art under State control and giving the homoeopaths some sort of a status whose absence has proved to be a serious handicap to the proper growth of the science of homoeopathy.
There is no longer any doubt about the scientific basis and practical efficacy of the homoeopathic system of treatment. In a poor country like India it has got a special importance in as much it is of immense benefit to the poor masses who cannot afford the luxury of a costly treatment. As a matter of fact, beneficiaries of the homoeopathic system of treatment among the poorer classes of the people are by no means less, if not more, than those of other recognised systems. It is, therefore, incumbent upon the Government to take immediate steps towards recognising this cheap and highly efficacious system of treatment for the benefit of the countrys millions of poor sufferers”.
The above is excerpted from Amrita Bazar Patrika dated 26-3- 1947. For State recognition of Homoeopathy we have been appealing for the past seven years, vainly trying to squeeze blood out of stone. The people cannot hope to get the benefits of Homoeopathy until the I.M.S. has not been liquidated.
