This in continuation of my query here.
The most powerful doctor in India is… Dr. Vashisht!
Everyday, (especially weekdays) he impacts the lives of easily a couple of lakh people in Delhi. And such is his impact, that the authorities have had to bend rules to accommodate the extent of his impact. While the immediate impact can be for periods ranging from 10 minutes to an hour or more, its effects last for quite a while.
However, till about a few years ago, his impact was much more pronounced and would touch the lives of a far greater number of people and for much longer periods of time. In fact, it was rivalled only by the impact of the Deity in the temple across the road.
So who is Dr. Vashisht?
Do your Google searches to find out. While I too shall be coming out with my reasons, next week.
Ok, I took much more than a week to come back on this one. And that had nothing to do with the subject of this post.
So here goes (you can click on thumbnail images of these Google Earth screen-grabs for more detailed pictures)…
…by the side of a road in a densely packed area (contrast this with the open greens in the above image). There was also a temple right across the road. Many people believe doctors are like Gods. Then this was a double-whammy — God and Dr.Vashishth in the same area.
Untill… the evil establishment of the day ravaged the area. Most buildings along both sides of the road were demolished. Only two structures stood the onslaught of bulldozers — the temple and Dr. Vashishth’s clinic! The latter backed by a court stay order.
Then one day, even the temple was demolished, with due reverence of course!
So this was the tale of the mighty Dr.Vashishth!
And what does the evil Google throw up on this mighty man?
