Dr. Mukesh Batra, a visionary entrepreneur, has deftly combined professional excellence and personal achievement with social commitment and contribution. Single-handedly responsible for pioneering modern Homeopathy in India, Dr. Batra has not only set up a colossal corporate empire but also extended the medical benefits of this safe and sure medical system throughout the country through path-breaking commercial as well as charitable initiatives.In 1974, when he entered the profession, Homeopathy was regarded as an ancient art, little better than faith healing, and practiced mainly by amateurs and retirees. Early to recognize that Homeopathy would be the medical system of the future, he standardized and professionalized Homeopathy to bring it on par with conventional medicine by using technology to give it scientific backing. Armed with little more than a first class professional degree and fierce determination, he took up the challenge of winning for Homeopathy the medical respect that it rightfully deserved. That today Homeopathy is viewed as a modern, progressive, efficient and effective medical option is largely a tribute to his medical skills, entrepreneurial courage, dedication and foresight.
By virtue of his excellent time management skills he takes time out to be an avid photographer, animal lover, social worker and a patron of theatre and the arts. Dr. Batra's patients include heads of states like the President and Prime Minister of Mauritius, Prime Minister of India, Chief Ministers, Governors and Cabinet Ministers, top industrialists and leading artists, film stars and singers
He strived incessantly to bring about the acceptance and legalization of Homeopathy across the world and was instrumental in legalizing the science in Mauritius where he set up its first homeopathic clinic. The Mauritian Broadcasting Corporation has made a documentary film on the life of Dr. Mukesh Batra, which was broadcast on primetime television. He successfully introduced Homeopathy to the Middle East countries.
Dr. Batra co-produced and anchored India's first ever health show 'The Positive Health Show' with UTV for Zee TV. The show was carried by Zee in all their various launches in different countries. He also did live dial-in shows for Europe with Zee TV.
A prolific writer, he has authored several books on Homeopathy, besides writing a regular weekly column on healing with Homeopathy in a leading newspaper.
Being a philanthropist, he established Dr. Batras' Positive Health Foundation in 2001 to help the underprivileged and deprived. The Foundation has been making a profound difference to the lives of street children, orphans, handicapped people and the elderly. Every clinic adopts orphanages and old-age homes and provides lifelong free treatment to the inmates.
