In the realm of homeopathy, a discipline steeped in tradition and pioneering thought, the impact of intellectual inheritance is profound. This is a story not just of medical research and book publishing but of an academic lineage that stretches across generations. One of the pivotal figures in this lineage was Dr. Jugal Kishore, a stalwart in homeopathy.
In the inaugural entry of the ‘Behind the Pages’ section for “Boger’s Legacy & Augmenting the Synoptic Key’s Repertory”, I delved into a deeply introspective journey. This introspection wasn’t merely a recollection, but an emotional expedition that transcended the boundaries of time. It began in 1988, during the concluding year of my BHMS studies. As a young and ambitious student, I was introduced to the intricate and profound world of the ‘Repertory’. It was then that I experienced my first in-depth interaction with the subject, a moment that would spark a lifelong passion.
The Beginning of a Journey into Repertory
The year was 1988. Picture a bustling campus of the prestigious Nehru Homeopathic Medical College & Hospital (NHMC), New Delhi, where young aspiring homeopaths tread with dreams in their eyes. It was here, during my final year of homeopathic graduation, that I truly embarked on my journey into the world of repertory. Regular classes were the norm, but there was something more. Something special.
