I say where there’s hope there’s life. More than medical marvels, each of the people we honor ever year represent the triumph of the human spirit. As a healthcare organization, Dr Batra’s seeks to encourage such examples of wellness and positivity.”
Reiterating his support to the cause, Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Auto Ltd. stated, “It’s my belief in homeopathy that got me associated with Dr Mukesh Batra and his organisation.
