Founder Member Vaidyaraj Haribhau Paranjape

  • Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi ji, Haribhau dedicated all his efforts to the betterment of lives of the poor and under privileged section in Maharashtra. He provided medical care along with the active contribution in the fight for India’s freedom .
  • He obtained qualifications in Ayurveda in 1927 while earning and doing social services. Very next year he started an Ayurvedic dispensary for the benefit of poor.
  • His interaction with Gandhiji inspired him to take the mission of “Taking medicines to the villages.” Taking this challenge Haribhau toured the Palghar region of Maharashtra on foot in 1928-30, covering nearly 200 villages.
  • In 1936, Haribhau’s vision of his own contribution to the society was crystallised and he decided to dedicate rest of his life to spread the message of Ayurved in country through personal practice, education and establishment of inexpensive hospital facilities it could be afforded by the poorest of the poor. Thus was founded the Ashtang Ayurved Mahavidyalaya in Pune.
