The fish "prasadam" purported to cure asthma and respiratory illnesses and administered once a year, will be given to patients free of cost by the Bathini brothers on Mrigasira Karthi day at the Exhibition Grounds in Nampally from 9:30 am on June 8 and 9:30am on June 9 this year.
Speaking to the media today, Bathini Harinath Goud, along with his family members, said that the the day of Mrigasira Karthi marked the onset of monsoon according to the Hindu calendar, and was hence auspicious.
"On that day, we insert yellow herbal paste (prasadam) into the mouths of live fingerlings. The live fish are then put into the throats of the patients. For vegetarian patients the family will prepare a separate prasadam with jaggery. However, vegetarians need to take the prasadam for a longer period," Goud said.
After taking the paste, a separate prasadam in the form of pills will also be given to the patients, and should be taken on three occasions over 45 days - on June 23, July 8 and July 23.
Patients are supposed to follow a strict diet, failing which the fish prasadam would not give the desired results, Goud added. Patients need to take the fish prasadam continuously for four years to fully rid themselves of asthma and other respiratory ailments, he said.
Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had directed all the departments concerned to make all arrangements needed, Goud said.
Fisheries & Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav had held a review meeting recently with all the concerned departments and asked them to provide all the amenities and fingerlings required. The GHMC and TSRTC, and the water works, fire, electricity and police departments, are also working on making all the necessary arrangements. The fisheries department will be providing two lakh fish.
Apart from the state government departments, voluntary organizations like Badri Vishal Pannalal Pitti Trust and Agarwal Seva Dal will also help. They would provide free meals, snacks, water and butter milk to the patients who would come from across the globe, said Harinath Goud.
