For the many HT readers who have called and mailed, even from Australia, ever since they read Mr NK Soni’s Inner Voice of August 24 on the East Delhi healer, Mr Kapoor: here’s the good news. Mr Soni just called with contact details. Inner Voice is happy to pass it on since so many of you have asked so often, of course with the caution that we at HT have not checked this out ourselves and give no ‘guarantee’ about Mr Kapoor. If you’d like to know the background, Mr Soni, who is 75 years old and retired from the Union Public Service Commission (Shahjehan Road) heard about Mr Kapoor about three years ago from a former colleague. Mrs Soni’s knee was hurting her a lot because of arthritis, so after a long and fruitless round of trying various treatments they decided to chance their luck with Mr Kapoor.
Mr Soni says he doesn’t know much about Mr Kapoor. He is apparently a family man in his mid-40s and in business, “perhaps cables?” He is thought to do a lot of puja and shares his skills as an intuitive healer absolutely free with the public, according to Mr Soni. He is not keen on publicity, feels Mr Soni, and it is only because Mrs Soni’s condition has improved so much that he felt the urge to tell HT readers through Inner Voice, where so many of you share your thoughts and experiences.
Mr Kapoor sits to heal only on Sunday, between 8 and 10 am. There is no phone number available. Between a 150 and 200 people gather, so there’s a 'token system' of waiting for your number to be called. It seems it’s no use trying dadagiri, sweet talk or the usual Delhi rank-pulling because intuitive healing does not work under pressure. But it takes only a minute per person (he holds your hand, presses a nerve or twists a limb). Go to 104 D, Chandu Park, Jagatpuri, East Delhi and ask for the "Painwale". Good luck.
