Doctor Kishore Chandra Das is ‘God’ for the people of Tentulikhunti village in Odisha’s Nabarangpur district. His name means ‘Service’ and he was the only thing standing between life and death.
But on Monday, when Doctor KC Das left Tentulikhunti village for higher studies, people burst into tears. They were unable to bear separation from him as he was no less than a God for them.
Doctor Das joined the Tentulikhunti health center in the year 2013 and since then he rendered selfless service to the rural people day and night without taking single money from them. He stood by them through thick and thin.
The kind of rapport Dr Kishore Chandra Das built with common people, was incredible in an era when Doctors fear to serve in rural & remote areas. He got felicitated with Kayakalp award for maintaining cleanliness in the year 2017 and also bagged Indravati award.
It was an emotional as well as tearful moment for the people as Doctor KC Das left Tentulikhunti village. Sparks flew, emotions ran high. Everyone was crying, including the Doctor himself. It was a rare sight indeed!
