In the period of the covid-19 pandemic, when the aged peoples have been advised to stay indoors and be more vigilant, an 87-year-old doctor from Mull in Maharashtra’s Chandrapur district is going to remote villages to treat patients and provide unmatched examples. Elderly doctor Ramchandra Dandekar has to travel 10 km to visit Mull, Pombhurna, and Ballarshah subdistrict area. He has been offering similar free services to people at home, for some time, for the last 60 years. He uses a bicycle for his visit. Even when the pandemic hit India, the aforementioned doctor of homeopathy and Ayurveda did not stop coming out of the house and he also treated his patients at that time.

Dandekar said, that ‘My routine is still the same as before. I want to continue to serve the people in the villages selflessly. ”Dandekar received a diploma from Nagpur Homeopathy College in 1957–58 and after that, he held the post of lecturer at Chandrapur Homoeopathy College for a year.

He carries neither a mobile phone nor a watch. Jayant said that if his father had to go to check the patients in a remotes subdistricts, he would go by bus and use the bicycles kept in the villages, and if it was late to return, he would stay in someone’s house there. He said, “Everyone calls him ‘Doctor Sahab Mul Wale’ and he checks to about 20 houses in each village.”
He is real hero of needy one who can’t afford the expensive treatments
Doctor Dandekar received a diploma from Nagpur Homeopathy College in 1957–58 and after that, he held the post of lecturer at Chandrapur Homoeopathy College for a year. But instead of doing this handy payment job, he works for needy people and treats those needy ones from the village who don’t have any proper knowledge about treatments and they also can’t afford the expensive treatments from specialty hospitals. He generally uses three therapies to cure his patient’s homeopathy, allopathy, and Ayurveda.
