Myself and my wife used to watch him on Sadhana TV at 9pm daily and "his" lectures impressed us a lot and I was sufferign from "some" illness and thought that we shall go and consult with this Dr. Naturopath (office Vasant Kunj, New Delhi). We took and appointment and viited his office to find that 2 teenaged girls at reception who kept talking all the time not even bothered to think even once about waiting patients. Dr. was absconding from office without traces and I had to remind the "girl" twice before she called him and reported that he is on his way to office and will be here soon.
Finally my wait was over and I saw "him" in real and he was no different from what I saw on TV....I thanked God for that :)
And the real drama was about to start now...we got the call and entered his room, to our surprise he was very fast with his analysis and told us that you need to follow a particular diet for one month as the carbon needs to be removed from your body (stomach)...and fo that you need to apply "Mud" on your stomach......and he continued non-stop and told us that the cost of one month "mud" package is Rs. 9000 myself and my wife were in shock to hear that as we never thought that it would cost so much.....
My wife was first to recover from "the shock" and asked him what so special about this mud, why is it so costly? Doctor was ready (should I say pre-programmed) with answers and said that it's prepared in Shimla and contains "special" herbs. He also added that he is the only MD Naturopath in Delhi and NCR region.
I gave my wife a hundred question look and she responded with eye contact and I understood that it's a "no" from her side. So I said that we are not carrying that much money with us and to my biggggg surprise the doctor said that he will send a guy with us and he will pay the auto charges also and we can pay the guy in cash at home or thru cheque as well......he said why are you thinking so much........he also added that he will get me on TV after one month. He added that you please call my wife tomorrow and she will guide you about your diet. Here I realized that this doctor is not interested in treatment but the money and selling mud because he is ready to give me mud right now but not giving me the diet chart. Meanwhile her wife (dressed like typical middle class punjabi business woman) entered the room and left some papers on his desk.
We had not clues whatsoever and we agreed after another round of eye-to-eye conversation and soon a teenager guy appeared with a polybag containing 10kg of shimla made "mud".
We left for home dreaming that after one month I will be alright and will be a TV star (just kidding), I draw money from nearby ATM, handed it over to the guy and then I realized that the doctor did not gave me any reciept or form or card.....so I dont have any record of my meeting, deal or treatment but I was not bothered as such as I was more focused on my healing.
(to be continued....)
I will be posting more details about my treatment and the business house this dcotor is running from Vasant Kunj New Delhi Office.
