Returning from Kashmir our Medical Team stopped at “Adopted Villages” in Jammu, Himachal Pradesh, and Harayana. The mood was quite different. The people know of Amma. They know we will return. The clinics were smaller and the doctors were able to take more time with each patient. Some even got to visit the villages. Wandering through our Himachal Pradesh village, Dr. Jaggu came upon this lady, obviously in distress.
He applies old fashioned “doctoring”. A kind word. A gentle touch. And she is in smile. Sometimes that is all that is needed to lift a spirit.
Dr. Jaggu Kottilil is Adl. General Manager at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences.
