  1. *Obituary of CCH:*
    Homoeopathy began its journey with a bitter Cinchona bark and gave sweet results. Whereas the CCH started with sweet beginnings but ended with bitterness. An institution committed for homoeopathic education in our country has completed its journey with bitterness. Now it is a history. Let us learn from history but not repeat it. The profession at large have to be cautious to avoid such embarrassment in future. Let us preserve this system in its pristine purity for the posterity.
