One has to enter the home from the gate available at the back of it, as soon as you enter you will find people standing in queue eagerly waiting for their chance to see the practitioner. We just have to stand at the end of the queue hoping to get out soon. When we entered the backyard we found around 150 people in the queue. Tokens will be given to each of the person 5 to 10 minutes before they allow them inside the house. As soon as we stood in the line we came to know that there are already 150 people inside the house. We realized that unless they all are done with collecting the medicine we won’t be able to get in and anticipated around 5 hours of standing.
There are several reasons why I have heard of this place a couple of times before I actually visited there. One, is because I was in Karnataka for 3 years, two, one of my close friends is a cancer specialist and three, one of my close friend’s cousin was diagnosed with cancer. Many people think that the ayurvedic cancer medicine is available in Shimoga but the place is actually 45 Kilometers away from that town. Shimoga is a district in Karnataka and the district headquarters Shimoga town, is 681 Kilometers away from Hyderabad, the place where I started my journey from.
There is a small store at the backyard, where one has to stand in queue. It has lots of snacks, drinks and other food items available for lunch. After two hours in the queue, people saw the assistant to the practitioner coming out and someone said that tokens are going to be distributed. Everyone stood properly in the queue and the excitement was down in 2 minutes as they realized that the assistant came out just for some snacks. Finally, after waiting for 4.5 hours we received the tokens to enter the inner part of the house.
