The OHMA wishes to honour Dr. Pratip Banerjee distinguished homeopath.
Our condolences to the Banerjee family.
DR. PRATIP BANERJEE – Jan 16,1964 – Jan, 18, 2021
Dr. Pratip Banerjee son of the late Dr Prasanta Banerjee passed away due to severe pneumonia at 1 am today. Dr Banerji was born January 16th, 1964 at Mihijam, Bihar, India. He was the fourth generation homeopath in the family. He did his post graduation from London College of Classical Homoeopathy. After post graduation, Pratip was invited to appear before the Board of the British Registrar of Complementary Physicians, which he did. Thereafter he received a letter from the Board asking him to give the address of the place where Pratip would like to set up his practice in the UK, so that the Board could refer patients to him. But Pratip returned to India to set up his own practice in Calcutta to follow the footsteps of his father and serve his countrymen. He further completed his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) from the JRN Rajasthan Vidyapeeth (Deemed University), Udaipur, India.
He was Co-Founder and Deputy Director of Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation. Dr. Pratip Banerji brought the scientific approach and international standards to allow verifiability of their research data. The process of data accrual and documentation according to the highest international standards was introduced by him. This made their research acceptable to the international scientific community. His vision into the future of homeopathy greatly encouraged the PBHRF in its research collaborations with premier international scientific establishments thus gaining a foothold for homeopathy in the international mainstream medical platform.
Keeping in view the family tradition to give medical aid to the under privileged and never to lose contact with one’s grass root, Pratip ran a charitable clinic where patients were treated for free. His life was entirely dedicated to service and his passing is an immense loss to the homeopathy community and the world community.
