“God gave us TWO EARS and ONE MOUTH,
so we can listen, twice as much as we speak.”
Dr Prakash & Mrs Kanan Golecha, are ENT specialists who have devoted their lives to the service of humanity. They are a part of our annual medical camps for the needy, however remote the area. The couple fly down from Jaipur without fuss or favour and stay in the simple lodgings provided to them.
At 75 and 72 years, this couple belies their age. They are sprightly with the glow of serenity that comes from the godliness within. It is wisely said “A Healthy outside, starts from a Wealthy inside”.
Dr Prakash blows into ear-drums and passes a cord through the nose to clear congestion. He is experienced in detecting genuine cases from the fakes, who come to the camp for free hearing aids and medication. Talking softly to his patients he keeps lowering his tone. If the person responds, he says with a twinkle in his eye “I am not just a doctor, I am also a magician. This man can now hear clearly!’ For him the bottom line is that every patient who comes to him, should go home cured.
His popularity is undisputed - the proof is in hordes of villagers that flock the camp to get a hearing aid, medicines or just cleaning of the debris of stale wax deposits that block their ears and impair hearing. He scribbles the prescription on a paper, be it hearing aids, antibiotics, or vitamin supplements. His wife takes charge, giving out the requirements.
With their hearing improved, patients go home thanking the good doctor and the several Ruchika committee members at the camp.
