about the video
Hundreds of people gathered at a health camp in Hyderabad to seek cures for their health problems by swallowing live fish. People with respiratory problems, including asthma and bronchitis, are fed herbal medicines inserted into live Murrel fish, which are generally two -three inches long. Ailing people reached at the camp to receive the medicine, which has been reported by earlier patients to bring relief. The annual camp is organised by the Bathini family, which has been providing the medicine to the needy since over 170 years. They distribute the medicine to patients during the auspicious Mrigasira solar phase, an astrological phenomenon which occurs once a year for two days. (ANI)
