An Obituary: A big loss to Homoeopathy

It is with great sadness that I write that our respected teacher, Dr. Diwan Harish Chand has passed away today morning (13th Dec 2011). I pray to God to give the strength to bear this massive loss to Dr. Diwan Harish Chand's family and the entire Homoeopathic fraternity.

(7- 03 -1924-------13 -12 -2011)

Dr. Diwan Harish Chand was born on 7th March 1924 at Lahore (Punjab). He graduated in medicine (M.B.B.S.) in 1945 and spent more than 60 years in the study and practice of Homoeopathy. He acquired the highest qualifications in Homoeopathy and in general medicine.

Dr. Diwan had a vast clinical experience working in hospitals in the United Kingdom, the United States and with Dr. Pierre Schmidt in Switzerland. He was actively involved in teaching programmes and lectures in many countries for the last fifty years. Dr. Diwan represented Indian Homoeopaths for a long time at LHMI as its President. He served as Vice President of the Central Council of Homoeopathy. He served Homoeopathy in various capacities both at an official level as well as institutionally. He participated in more than fifty international Congresses (including 25 of LMHI). He was the only ASIAN PRESIDENT and later PRESIDENT OF HONOUR of the international Homoeopathy medical league (L.M.H.I.)

The great doctor's years of toil and relentless perseverance has been recognized with 20 awards, National and International and numerous honorary diplomas and fellowships. This includes the most prestigious award in medicine, "The Dhanwantari Award,"  having been judged, "the most outstanding medical man of the year." This award is for all disciplines (Allopathy, Ayurveda and Homoeopathy) and he was the first homoeopath who received it.

On 24th April 2011 Dr.A.K.Walia, the Honorable Minister of Health and Family Welfare Government of Delhi conferred the "Homoeopathic Rattan Award" for the first time ever to Dr. Diwan Harish Chand in celebration of his contribution to the cause of homoeopathy during a function celebrating 256th birth anniversary of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann organized by Board of Homoeopathic System of Medicine and Delhi Homoeopathic Federation. This 1st December LIGA 2011 also expressed their respect by honoring him. 

Dr Diwan performed his duties as the honorary physician to the Presidents of India from 1969 to 1997. Dr. Diwan Harish Chand’s painstaking efforts have given to Homoeopathy priceless works like: "A Compendium of Lectures on Homoeopathy," "Microdoses Megaresults (Clinical Cases)," and "Homoeopathy in Geriatrics." He co-edited with Dr. Pierre Schimdt "Kent's Final General Repertory." Dr Diwan has been a member of every Homoeopathy committee of the government of India over the last 50 years and acted as chairman of committees of research, education and pharmacopeias. He was actively involved in social service avenues of the Rotary club of Delhi; in civil defense; and Aids Awareness and Family Welfare programmes. Besides all these activities he was a sportsman, keen photographer and philatelist.

Dr. Diwan Harish Chand's demise is an irreparable loss to the Homoeopathic Fraternity. His writings will live with us and he will always be remembered for all the great things he has done for our wonderful healing art. I, Dr. Navneet Bidani join with so many others who knew Dr. Diwan in offering our deepest sympathy and condolences to his near and dear ones on his passing.

May his soul rest in peace.

"Om Tryambhakam Yajamahe, Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam, Urvarukamiva Bandhanan, Mrityor Mukshiya Maamritat"

English translation of the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:

'We worship the Three-eyed One who is fragrant, immensely merciful and who is the Protector of the devotees. May he liberate us from death for the sake of immortality, Even as the cucumber is severed from bondage to the creeper.'
