Bathini Brothers belong to a Goud Family living in Hyderabad. Every year Bathini Brothers Fish Medicine which is an Herbal Food Supplement is offered to Asthama patients for free. Its been 168 years since they have started offering free medicine for Asthama cure and they still continuing the tradition.
There is a story behind why the Bathini Brothers having started this social service for Asthama cure. Their Great Grand Father Mr. Veeranna Goud (before 1845), used to distribute Toddy along with bread to the labor who work hard everyday and help them to quench their thirst and hunger. An holy man met Mr Veeranna Goud and was impressed with his charity activity and told him about the secret formula of some good herbs which can cure Asthama. He also told him to distribute the herbal food supplement for Free. Since then the Bathini Family have been practicing this charitable activity curing many Asthama patients since more than 160 years.
After Mr. Veeranna Goud, this secret formal is passed to Shiva Ram Goud who later to Shankar Goud. The herbal medicine supplement got famous and gained popularity during Shankar Goud tenure and he in turn passed the formula to his five sons. The present Bathini Goud brothers are Mr. Vishwanath Goud, Mr. Harinath Goud and Mr. Uma Maheshwar Goud. Now their sons are also involved in this practice.
Bathini Brothers Fish Medicine is distributed on the day of ‘Mrigasira Karti”(Monsoon season starts from Mrigasira Karthi). This day is generally falls in the first or second week June every year. The Herbal Medicine is first kept in the mount of a live small fish (around 2 inches size) and the same is slipped in the mouth of each patient. Bathini Brothers never disclosed the secret formula of their herbal medicine to anyone other than their family members because there is belief that the secret formula of the herbal medicine may not work if its disclosed to everyone.
