Premchand Jain The Karmayogi
It's time for greatness -- not for greed. It's a time for idealism -- not ideology.
It is a time not just
for compassionate words, but compassionate action.
Shanti Devi Jain
Dr. Premchand Jain
And the most valuable of these lessons that he had learnt
was to see the patient as a whole entity. His concern, as
was his father's, was not merely for the physical well
being but mental and economic well being as well. Many a poor patient received medical aid from him for
free. It was not just the medicines, but often food. This, in spite of the fact that the father and son duo
were not rich themselves! Deeds surely speak far better than words. Premchand
became well known and soon he was respected for his social,
philanthropic and charitable deeds. When he married Shanti
Devi at the age of 16 he could not have asked for a more
supportive and encouraging spouse. Free eye check up camps
became an annual affair at his hospital. He also organized
Free Kitchen (langar) at his home in Barnala where meals
were served to everybody for free. His zeal and enthusiasm
encouraged people to make him the president of the Jain
Biradri and the president of Model School for life.
