Shankutala Misra

Dr. Shakuntala Misra was born Kanpur in the year 1924 in a renowned Brahim family. During her childhood she used to spend her summer vocation in her native villagers. She was inspired to work for them after meeting down trodden, poor, handicapped persons in the society and noticing the difficulties being faced by them. She was saddened to see that children are deprive of education because of their caste or being handicapped.

In order to impart education to have nots and handicaps, she qualified M.A and B.T. without financial support from her family, despite belonging to a well off family. She completed her education so that she may teach poor children free of cost by even providing food and books to them. Not only this, she made arrangements for poor students to achieve professional and technical education, so that they can lead their life independently and with dignity.

After her marriage she obtained Homeopathy and Ayurvedic Medical Degree. Thereafter, she opened a charitable hospital in Kanpur where treatment and medicines were given free of cost to down trodden people of society. She was very kind hearted, religious and always keen to serve the society.

She helped people unitedly, so that people can get rid of their disability and become active member of the society. She believed in spending time and money for helping the poor people, so that they become independent by developing skill as per requirement of the market and do not seek favors from others.
