Fish medicine to be given on June 8, 9

The famous fish medicine for the cure of asthma and other respiratory problems will be distributed from the exhibition grounds in Nampally, its original venue, on the occasion of Mrigasira Karthi, on June 8 and June 9.

“Last year, when the event was held at Kattedan, not our regular venue, there was a stampede and two people lost their lives,” said Bathini Harinath Goud, whose family has been distributing this medicine since 1845. 

Keeping in mind the problems faced by the huge number of people coming from different parts of the country and also the delay by district authorities in granting permission, the Bathini brothers are now urging the authorities not to change the venue to Kattedan, which has inadequate facilities for handling crowd.

They want all the safety measures in place as 4 lakh people are expected to come. The homemade fish medicine, whose formula has been kept secret for decades, is administered free of cost by the famous Bathini family.
