Milestones In The History Of IHK
The IHK is formed as a continuation of Homeopathic Medical Association of India. Dr, K.V. John, Dr. N. K. Jayaram, and some eminent doctors had taken part in the National Congress of HMAI held at Calcutta during the 1979-80. Dr. Ravi M. Nair, Dr. C. J. Varghese and Dr. B. Pardhasarathi who had been studying in National Institute of Homeopathy also participated with them in the Congress. Dr. C. J. Varghese continued with its works while he was working as the assistant in the clinic of Dr. K. V. John at Thiruvananthapuram . Then come an idea of “An Association for the Qualified Doctors” and under the leadership of Dr. C. J. Varghese in Thrissur zone and Dr. V. Ravindranathan Pilla, Dr. K.V. Francis, and Dr. Purushothaman in Kannur zone, “Doctors’ Council” came into existence. Dr. C. J.
