Additional Deputy Commissioner DD Syngai who graced the occasion as the chief guest said based on personal experiences homoeopathy medicine is efficient and effective. “It has effectiveness to cure the disease for which medicine is taken, but one requires patience as it is not an instant cure,” she said.
