The journey of an icon that revolutionised and pinned the word ‘homeopathy’ on the global map.

If you think of homeopathy in India, one name springs to mind – Dr Batra’s®. From humble beginnings with a clinic in Chowpatty, Bombay in 1982, Dr Mukesh Batra put homeopathy on the world map by starting over 200 clinics in seven countries and in 150 cities of India in the next four decades.

The Nation’s Homeopath is an unusual tale of entrepreneurship, risk appetite, resilience and selfbelief. In the early 1980s when India was still a decade away from liberalisation, and loans were not readily available, Dr Batra borrowed money at a staggering interest rate of 36 per cent per annum. All based on the strong conviction that his business would work out. Not only did the business succeed, Dr Batra’s® became a household name. Dr Batra’s life has been eventful. For decades, he has treated celebrities, including presidents, prime ministers, actors, sportsmen,
artists, among others, as well as the common man without discrimination. Along the way, he has defied death on multiple occasions, has known love and heartache and has experienced failure in some business ventures. Part memoir, part guidebook for entrepreneurs, Dr Batra’s life has lessons that would benefit readers from any sphere of activity.

Dr Mukesh Batra is a homeopath of international repute and Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Dr Batra’s® group of companies –which encompasses the largest chain of homeopathy clinics, day-care aesthetic centres and health and wellness products. He has authored six bestselling books on homeopathy. He has also published several research papers in journals and chaired scientific sessions at homeopathic conferences, nationally and internationally. Dr Batra has been honoured with the Padma Shri for Medicine (Homeopathy) in 2012 by the President of India for his contribution towards the field of homeopathy.

Dr Mukesh Batra, says, “The Nation’s Homeopath is the story of my personal experiences as a medical
professional and an entrepreneur. The reader will get a ringside seat of the mistakes that I have made; and how I converted challenges into opportunities and failures into success. This book tracks not only my journey as a homeopath in India, but the experiences that I have encountered while setting up a multi-national medical conglomerate from ground up. It will also teach budding entrepreneurs lessons that they won’t find in any text book or management degree.”

Sachin Sharma, Senior Commissioning Editor, Harper Collins India, says, “A thoroughly gripping read, that is honest, witty and a guide for the budding entrepreneur. It proves that one does not need to have completed a fancy management degree, but that self-belief, foresight and sheer determination can lead you to success.
