Padma Shree Awarded to The Doctor Who Treats Poor Patients For Rs 5

From the last 55 years, Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee has been treating poor patients in Ranchi for a mere Rs 5 and sometimes for even free.

He is 83 years old and completed his MBBS from Patna Medical College in 1957. After completing his MBBS, he gave his medical services in Jharkhand and Bihar but he always wanted to do something selfless for the society. That’s why after retiring he set up a clinic in Lalpur Chowk, Ranchi where he started treating poor people in times of sickness when other doctors and hospitals were too expensive for them.

He says that “You cannot measure everything from money. I have learned that you need to draw a line and to know how much is enough. If someone is a doctor, their main motive should be the wellbeing of their patient. Life is far more precious than money. If I would have wanted to earn money only and become a millionaire then I would have chosen a different career.”

At the age of 83, he still sees patients for two hours every day. And not to forget, the consultation fee of just Rs 5 which he charges is inclusive of the medicine he gives to his patients.

The Indian government has finally recognized this silent hero for his selfless service which he has been doing from over half a decade now and awarded him with Padma Shree this year.

When asked about what message he would like to give to other doctors, he said, “I would like to say to them that they earn so much money, they should treat at least one patient for free every day.”

The awards are conferred by the President of India at a function in Rashtrapati Bhawan in March or April every year.
