  • I salute this great man.

  • आज समाज को ऐसे लोगों की बहुत जरूरत है, एक ओर जहा डॉ लोग नरपिसाच जैसे खून चूस रहे गरीबों का वहीं ऐसे देव मानुस भी जो मिसाल है उनके लिए, जो अपना कर्तव्य भूल गए है मेरा डॉ सहाब को शत शत नमन है और उनकी लंबी उम्र की कामना कर्ता हूं

  • Indians don't deserve him

  • Pain of poor can only be understood by poor people And in future if they became less poor They know the up and down and hence their heart is large than us and No one can stop them Jai Maharashtra 🙏

  • *India should legalize euthanasia for the elderly like Switzerland did.* So elderly people who can’t take care of themselves anymore and do not want to spend the rest of their lives rotting away in a assisted care/retirement home have the option of being euthanatized fast and painlessly with the help of doctors. *It would also benefit poor elderly people who have not saved any money for retirement and can no longer work.*

  • So much to learn... I wish I can be like you 😇

  • I want to say " THANK YOU VERY MUCH DOCTOR" 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  • Yaar duniya mein aaj bhi aaise log hai, kabhie kabhie bharosa hi nahi hota . Khud bhi kuch dusro ke liye karnae ki ischha hoti hai Sir you are a hero. I would request quint to contribute to him as this video generates remuneration for you

  • How can brahmin do it?? Brahmin are follower of manusmriti. Bahujan should be away from this guy

    • What is manusmriti?

    • Lol. Why can't Brahmins do it? Why shall we categorise a kind human with respect to any religion/caste or anything?? These just divide us. Ultimately we are all humans

    • Wtf shut up

    • Shut up

  • 🙏🙏🙏 A big salute to you sir👌❤❤❤❤🙏🙏

  • The fact that he carries all his medicines it 10kgs or 20kgs on his cycle without anyone's help is commendable.

  • he deserves national award

  • "because that is what heroes do"

  • He should be inspirational to this generation who are complainers and want easy money.. God bless you sir.

    • @Karan Sharma lol what makes me a free loader? 😁

    • @Arnav Banerji who tf even cares ! You're diverting the Point smoothly just like a typical political party Spokesperson or some AndhBhakt 😂🤣 The topic was about 'ShortCutters' or 'FreeLoaders' and seems like you're relatable 😂 JK, Chill 😉

    • @Karan Sharma but these people won't protest and block roads 😁

    • @Arnav Banerji more like Fake Religious bhakts who takes a Bowl and sits outside Temples or the Babas & Pujaris who loots people on the name of religion and god 😂

    • @Arnav Banerji simp

  • Salute sir.. But please take care your health too.

    • It's This must be obvious by now. Look for LONG videos of/featuring Dr Kary B Mullis and you will understand. Also look up Koch's postulates (Dr Mullis talks about it, but Dr Tom Cowan youtube channel gives in-depth description).
