Governor Satya Pal Malik participated in the celebrations of the 156th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda coupled with the 49th annual day of Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission Charitable Hospital (SVMMCH), Ambphalla, here today.

Paying rich tributes to the great thinker and philosopher, the Governor said Swami Vivekananda, who had a great vision, lived the life of a saint and worked selflessly for the betterment of society. He said the youth should seek inspiration from his teachings.

Lauding the healthcare services being provided by the hospital, Malik said the establishment of such an institute was a befitting tribute to the philosophy of practical Vedanta, which was advocated by Vivekananda.

Appreciating SVMMCH president Chaman Lal Gupta and the governing body, he said they had started from a one-room dispensary about five decades ago and turned it into a well-run hospital today. He lauded the efforts of the governing body for providing medical and diagnostic facilities, particularly to the poor, at highly subsidised rates and even free.

Welcoming the chief guest, Gupta briefed the gathering about the functioning of the hospital and its plans. He said the charitable hospital had been providing healthcare to needy. He also appreciated the doctors and paramedics for extending healthcare with devotion and dedication.
