One of her cousins told her father to take her to Bombay, where she met a boy but the patient refused him by giving the reason of inability to manage on an income of Rs 400 per month? However the boy insisted and he took her photograph. Three years later he had earned Rs 60000,. which he attributed to her lucky photograph. He came back and married her in 1956. Her father then bought a home for Rs 15000/- Later when she did not conceive,she wanted to adopt a child but her husband refused saying "We cannot take anothers child. We cannot discipline it or hit it". So she offered her husband said "Just look after neighbors buildings children, that is enough for me".

In 1964, her husband had a heart attack worked went on strike and created tension for him. In 1968 they moved to the office flat at Pedder Road.

The patient is still under treatment for her BP. Her BP which ranges from 160/90 mm to 160/100 mm of Hg and the allopathic medicine is being tapered off.

In this case it is important to note the reason for the raised BP ie the raised Uric Acid. I want to stress the importance of bringing down the uric acid level by homoeopathic or allopathic or allopathic remedies because only then will the BP come down.
