Sometimes we stumble upon stories that have a profound impact on us that it change our outlook towards life. This is one such story of Dr Shiv Shankar Prasad who has gone to prove that life is not just about making money but also about serving the society. 

We covered the story of the “Rs 20 Doctor” a few weeks ago. Dr Shiv Shankar Prasad is also one such person who puts the betterment of the society and people first. Ever since he finished his MBBS in 1986, Dr Prasad has been treating patients for only Rs 10. For the past 30 years, he has been selflessly striving to provide better healthcare to the people of Bihar.

He opened a nursing home Suhagi clinic in Biharsharif Nalanda. It is a general hospital with qualified doctors and surgeons. All the patients are charged only Rs 10 as consultation fee.

Speaking to The Logical Indian, Dr Prasad said that he started the nursing home after he completed his MBBS and with the support of other doctors, this hospital strives to provide better healthcare facilities to people.

Bihar is the state which lags behind in health care facilities due to corruption and lack of staff. This nursing home has come as a silver lining for those who cannot afford to go to doctors and get treatment. The hospital receives the maximum number of visits in the district.

Dr Prasad further said that on 25th of every month, they organise free medical camps for people which include dental checkup, blood pressure, and other basic tests.

He ensures that all the patients reaching their hospital receive treatment.

The Logical Indian salutes Dr Shiv Shankar Prasad and his staff for their selfless work and devotion towards people.
