Administering the fish medicineStill people are strongly believing in traditional and age old medicines. Why is it so? Because, most of them cause no side effects besides curing the disease from the root. Hyderabad fish medicine (Chepa Mandu) is one such traditional medicine which has been branded as the permanent remedy for Asthma.

Naidu at the venueThe fish medicine being administered by the Bathini Goud family since decades has become popular over the years. This year lakhs of asthma patients lined up in the exhibition grounds on 8th June 2001 to take the miracle fish medicine. As the fish medicine is administered every year on the Mrigasira Karti day (first day of the monsoon season according to Hindu Almanac) only, people from all corners of the globe reached Hyderabad well before the schedule and lined up at the medicine administration venue from the midnight of June 7. They patiently waited for their turn for six to eight hours in the queue. "I am taking the medicine for the last three years (prescribed period for complete relief from asthama). Almost 90% of my asthama problem has been cured and I am here for the fourth dose because of my interest in the medicine", said Mohd. Wakeel of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. "Standing in the queue continuously for hours is a risky one. But it is negligible when compared to the asthma problem, we face," said one old man who came from Rajasthan.

The fish medicine administeration of this year was held as part of the 'Visit Hyderabad week' conducted by tourism department to attract visitors to the various sightseeing places in and around the city. According to Bathini Harinath Goud, the key person of the Bathini Family who administers fish medicine, "about 5 lakh patients took the fish medicine this year".

Social organisation at workMr. Veerendra Yadav who came all the way from Madhepura, Bihar along with his family members to have the medicine had a glance of the historical monument Charminar. "My five year son read about Charminar in his text books, since then he is very eager to see the monument. So I brought my whole family this time one day before the schedule and we saw all the important places of the historical city," Mr Yadav said.

There were number of bureaucrats, politicians, VIPs besides common people who took the medicine. Mr. Bathini Harinath Goud personally administered the medicine to the VIPs like Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, Director General of Police H.J. Dora, Home Minister Devendar Goud, Union Civil Aviatioin Minister Sharad Yadav and his wife.

People lined up for their turnThe medicine administration was started around 8.30 am as per the schedule by Andhra Pradesh Fisheries Minister Narasimha Rao. The Bathini brothers Mr. Vishwanatham Goud, Mr. Harinath Goud, Uma Maheswar Goud, Mr. Prakash Goud, Mr. Shiva Prasad Goud, Mr. Amarnath Goud, Mr. Viswanatham Goud, other family members and volunteers administered the medicine round the clock at 36 counters. After medicine administration, all the patients were given the extra three doses of Karthi medicine. Some hawkers and traders did good seasonal business by selling booklets on asthma and food items like dry old mango pieces and cow ghee which have to be consumed along with the fish medicine for the effective cure of asthma.

Government of Andhra Pradesh made elaborate arrangements for the smooth passage of the event. The Public Works Department erected barricades and Metro Water Works department arranged the drinking water distribution camp. The fisheries department supplied the live Murrel fish lingerings at a nominal price of Rupees six.

Regimine food on saleSeveral voluntary organisations like Agarwal Samaj, Punjabi Seva Samiti, Uttar Bharat Sangh arranged free accommodation for the people who came from other states. They also supplied drinking water and food packets at the venue. The cultural programmes were also organised by the tourism department to entertain the visitors.

"The patient should have complete faith in the medicine for effective results. Most of the asthma patients come to Hyderabad with great faith on the fish medicine. That is the reason why patients feel relieved from the asthma after coming here", said Dr. Mohan Rao, when asked his comments on the traditional fish medicine.

No doubt, the fish medicine is every asthama patient's destiny. If you missed this time, get ready for the next year on Mrigasira Karthi Day (Around first week of June).
