Free Treatment Camp at Maha Kumbh Mela, Sangam, Allahabad: 8 Jan-9 Feb 01

Maha Kumbh religious mela that is held once in 12 years, is the biggest congregation of humanity anywhere on earth. More than 50 million people from all over the country and abroad take a dip in the holy Ganges River during the month long event. The Sansthan was indeed fortunate in serving this vast sea of humanity that gathered at the mela site and established a series of free treatment camps at the mela for this purpose. A total of six free treatment camps were established under the able leadership of Sansthan’s vice president  (treatment) Shri M.K. Midha. He was ably assisted by Shri Satya Narain Nawalgharia who looked after the complete supply chain of acupressure instruments and their accounting. Details of the camps are as follows:

  • Maruti Shri Ram Baba Seva Trust (London) Camp. A fully residential treatment camp was established within the premises of Maruti Baba’s camp, courtesy Baba. Baba was very gracious in providing complete boarding and lodging to the Sansthan’s therapists and other staff. This camp functioned as the Sansthan’s main camp at the mela. Shri Siya Pratap Singh took charge of this free treatment camp. He was assisted by a team of over 20 therapists and support staff. Ms. Vinod Agarwal (buaji) assisted in the camp administration. The Camp’s books and equipment stall was manned by Col V.K. Chowdhury, assisted by Shri Pankaj Kesarwani. Acupressure awareness training classes were held at this main camp daily in the evenings for spreading knowledge of the therapy amongst the mela visitors.
  • Mela Administration Allotted Sansthan’s Camp. This camp site was allotted to the Sansthan by the mela administration in Sector 1 and was ably looked after by Shri S.C.D. Goel, Sansthan’s vice president (publications) and his team. An acupressure exhibition was also organized at this camp. Shri A.K. Dwivedi looked after the camp administration and exhibition.
  • Shri Parmarth Niketan Camp. Over 10 therapists led by Shri K.C. Goel, Sansthan’s vice president (general) provided their services at this camp located at Sector 6.
  • Shri Santosh Das Udasin Camp. An 11-member team led by Shri M.G. Mishra and Shri Jaipal Das provided their services at this camp located in Sector 7.
  • Shri Parakh Kabir Sansthan Camp. Over 12 therapists provided their services at this camp located in Sector 8. Boarding and lodging was made available to the therapists at this camp.
  • Utthan Satat Garibi Unmulan Sansthan Camp. Over 10 therapists led by Shri Anand Srivastava provided their services at this camp located in Sector 7.

Treatment was carried out at all the camps daily for a period of seven hours or more. All together about 50,000 patients were treated at these six camps during the course of the mela. Overall more than 150 therapists and support staff were involved in providing service during the camp. The therapists came not only from Allahabad but also from far off places such as Lucknow, Kanpur, Bhopal, Ganganagar, Mirzapur, Bhadohi, Fatehpur and Bharwari. Shri S. P. Goyal, Sansthan’s general secretary assisted by the head office staff provided back end support to ensure that all the requirements were met.

Sansthan’s president Shri Mata Prasad Khemka and senior vice president Shri J.P. Agarwal visited the mela camps often and provided their blessings and valuable advice in treatment of complex cases. They also took opportunity to render their own services to the patients on numerous occasions.

The Sansthan was indeed fortunate in that its therapists got the opportunity to treat some of the great saints congregated at the mela including the holy Shankaracharya, Sant Asaram Bapu, Swami Pragyanand Sarswati, Swami Chidanand Sarswati (muniji) and Sant Shri Maruti Ram Baba.

The finance minister UP government, Shri Harish Chand Srivastava and Director General Health UP also visited the Sansthan’s camps and boosted the morale of the therapists.
