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.

Premchand Jain was born in the year 1909 to Dr Hemraj, an ayurvedic physician. His mother died at a young age and Premchand's mentor, friend, philosopher and guide was his father Dr Hemraj. His father's words were gospel to him and his father's deeds exemplified the true spirit of service to mankind. The knowledge that Premchand Jain gained from his father, the ayurvedic physician, was far more valuable and important to him than mere formal education which for him had lasted up to 4th grade. The most important of these lessons was to heal the sick with the aid of the Indian system of medicine. Young Premchand was literally the shadow of his father, following him to every nook and corner of many villages, sometimes on horse-back, sometimes on foot facing many hardships with stoicism, surprisingly unique to one so young.
