      Good to read u dude. U do have a point. But I wont blame you. Its a perception. Many among us see associations as those born to collect money, conduct seminars and meet often to find more reasons to collect again :-)

      Well, not many r wise to know that many of the privileges a Homoeopath enjoy in India today at private nd govt sector are born from the pains nd efforts of those mighty men nd their teamwork who got the Govt to do things for h’paths favor. They are also the founders of such organizations, some which has lasted upto near half a century. They were formed to safeguard Hpathy nd Hpaths and not for money collection thru seminars. :-)

      Unity among docs and standing tgthr for common causes nd policies and facing challenges tgthr to react in unison is what asociation means all about. Pity the perception otherwise. But am sure u have had your bad experience from some organization. Better said as mistakes done by some puts an association to blame.

      Be sure that FIHA wud prove ur perception wrong. Atleast thats what we are working towards.

I wish you might know me personally.

        What UNITY, My god plz Doc don’t say those things which never happened from that half century. I also have hope that atleast one day every homeopath will comeup & stand beside eachother but lets see when that time will come.

        But for sure it is not that easy so from my side, best wishes for all of u & ur organisation.

        About my perception, It is drawn from pure experiment & practical knowledge as hahnemann had adviced . :)

        Excellent remarks by Dr Menon. I fully agree with him but at the same time think there is room for improvement in the working of our associations all over India. We have been doing the PR with official agencies but I feel we need to work with the fraternity first. Homoeopathy is facing skepticism not only from outside but from inside too. Partly the leaders with their arrogance and other problems are responsible for this. At the same time our doctors need to be vigilant and responsible towards their duties as members of the homoeopathic fraternity.
        If power is for people, the people must be worthy enough to demand and hold it.
        A society is known by the units it is made up of and this true with the homoeopathic fraternity also.

  2. Wish the new organisation all the best, it could make the difference if the co-ordinator is able to co ordinate.

    Dear Dr Ali,
    Thanks for the latest and the GREAT news for homoeopathic fraternity in India. I hope with the new federation in place the future of homoeopathy is bright. More so with great people steering it, the homoeopathy’s horizon is destined to widen.
    Congratulations to you and all homoeopaths on this great occasion.
    I regret I do not know Dr Ajith Kumar personally but I know Dr Bhatt and Dr Murty for long and am sure this TRIAD of homoeopathy will work wonders for the betterment of homoeopathy in India. Furthermore under the stewardship of able Dr Eswara Das we see homoeopathy touching new shores in the journey of health for all.
    I see my vision of the great homoeopaths coming together as one, as expressed in my Sudeh-Suman Indian Homoeopathic Resources 2002 has taken concrete shape 10 yrs down the line. I hope to see more blitzes on homoeopathic front.
    May God bless this federation! Hail homoeopathy and hail the great Hahneman!

    PS – I would have loved to write to Dr Ajith personally but his emial was not included in the news on Similima.com, kindly forward this to him.

    Yours truly
