Man who served society

Ravi Rohmetra
Three years ago, Jammu lost a philanthropist, a social worker in the shape of Dr. Kewal Krishan Gupta, who worked tirelessly and selflessly for almost more than 65 years for treating poor people of Jammu and Kashmir. He was a friend, guide and social worker born on 8th August 1933 at Jammu in the family of Dr. Lal Chand Gupta (who was the pioneer and created Gupta Eye Lotion, City Chowk, Jammu in 1931) and Beera Devi . After graduation he had to leave the studies to look after the free eye clinic, established by his father to help the poor. Long queues at his clinic were seen throughout his life especially during the eye flu season. He was also known for his simplicity and extremely good behaviour and during his life time he was counted amongst the great personalities of Jammu. The small eye clinic played a pivotal role in providing relief to minor ailments like flu etc especially for poor and needy section of the society and there is hardly a family in Jammu who has not visited his clinic during his lifetime.
Example For Service
It may be mentioned that the founder of this Eye Clinics Dr Lal Chand Gupta had a spiritual bent of mind and his mother had instructed him to serve the humanity at all costs and in every circumstance. This service to ailing mankind is true worship of the Almighty and this advice always remained with his family which is still undertaking social service. Dr Kewal Krishan Gupta will be remembered for his social services and contribution to the society. He is being remembered on his 3rd death anniversary. No doubt Gupta Ji is not with us but due to his selfless service for mankind his name will remain always alive in our hearts. An epitome of humanity and resilience, Mr. Gupta went on to become one of the most enduring icons, who dedicated his entire life in the service of the people. Dr Kewal Krishan Gupta ji was a simple and humble man and I pray to God that more and more such common persons come forward to serve the poor and needy.
