Dr. JUGGAL KISHORE
Jugal Kishore (1915–2012) was an Indian homoeopathic physician and the founder Director of Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital, New Delhi, a Government of Delhi undertaking. He was honored by the Government of India, in 2012, with the fourth highest Indian civilian award of Padma Shri. Jugal Kishore was born in 1915 in the British India. He did his graduate studies at the Foreman Christian College, Lahore, Punjab University and was preparing to appear for the Indian Civil Service examinations when he contracted a disease which rendered him bedridden for over a year. During the convalescing period, he is reported to have chanced upon a homoeopathic book which helped him in self-medication and a reported cure from his illness. This is known to have prompted him to take up studies on homoeopathy.
