BE A HUMBLE PERSON LIKE HIM & DONATE GENEROUSLY (For Reasons read below)
For his exceptional and breakthrough work on Bipolar Disorder
As you know Dr. Ashoka Jahnavi Prasad is leading a life of a recluse since many years at his native place Gorakhpur, India. I talked to him and investigated the matter as he is known to my paternal grandfather Professor Hari Shankar Srivastava (who is an Indian Historian ) for a long time who also lives in Gorakhpur. If I hide the facts ,it would be unjustified for Dr. Prasad for the purpose he has taken birth. At present he is losing control on himself after effect of depression as he was telling to me while taking sip of tea with me at his residence at Gorakhpur. I got very sad when I heard him saying to me that "I worked around the world at the top institutions and universities of the globe and I contributed to the medical sciences and all the other subjects I studied.. They made me member of the finest academies of the world. They did everything but they played international politics with me only because of my color and origin from India. I was humiliated in Australia when I once expressed myself to my peers in the Australian Continent. Maximum noble laureates are from the west. Why?" "THEY NEVER HONOURED ME with a NOBLE PRIZE for my exceptional work." "THEY EVEN REMOVED MY PROFILE FROM WIKIPEDIA,The Free Encyclopedia and attached it with the Category Scientific Fraud

"Is this the reward given to the most educated person of the world"."I visited Haiti and contributed my physical labour selflessly when the natural earthquake disaster hit there." "What I earned by working around the world till today has finished and is almost nill. I have started compromising with my principles. As a doctor and like other doctors by profession I treated my poor patients at Gorakhpur which is one of the very backward small towns of India with full dedication. I worked for harijans basti selflessly for period of years. But now I am forced to practice in a Private clinic at Gorakhpur and I have to charge fees from my poor patients. I invested my money in books without which I cant live as reading is my only passion. But books doesnt give food when you reach your old age." He also said that I hail from the family of jamindars and lawyers & landowners. My younger brother has sold off more than 60% of the ancestral properties for his habit of alcoholism and his personal enjoyment of life and he has been an unsuccessful person in the business industry for which he struggled to succeed. He quoted that Homi Jehangir Bhabha’s bungalow ‘Meherangir’ got auctioned for Rs 372 crore but our ancestral properties were located near Gorakhpur (Eastern Part of Uttar Pradesh) so they didnt sold off at that level of ‘Meherangir’.Now my brother Harsha Prasad has indulged himself for his hobby directing Indian theatres and I support him. Harsha has on old bollywood friend Zarina Wahab, an Indian actress of ChitChor fame. When her son , Suraj, was arrested in June, 2013, for aiding and abetting the suicide of his girlfriend, Jiah Khan, Harsha Prasad as a human being supported Zarina after understanding the pain of a mother. Harsha Prasad casted bollywood sex symbol Mallika Sherawat in his play in which Mallika played the role of a widow.He quoted that the decision of imprisonment of Shri Sanjay Dutt , Superhero and respected actor of bollywood who has been a good friend of him since a long time, was very shocking when he heard the news of his imprisonment for keeping AK-56 assault rifle personally and he should had been forgived as Shri Sanjay Dutt wanted to protect his family from threats he was receiving from unknown people. He should have been granted licence and he took law in his hands under stress for the love and protection of his family. He quoted that "As a learned Harvard Law Post Graduate I condemn the decision of his imprisonment and he should had been given mild punishment as he was not a professional criminal. The laws in India should be amended to protect the families who had glorious past". "I am myself a well known psychiatrist of world hall of fame but I am afraid that I can suffer from bipolar disorder at any time."(The subject he is known for). Dr. Prasad is also taking help of a Japanese Traditional Reiki Healing Grand Master Shri. Amar Kumar based at Kolkata,India who is a practitioner of Alternative Medicine , a Graduate Engineer and a Master's Of Business Administration product from XLRI Jamshedpur, runs the Reiki Healing Center at Kolkata and a well known Reiki healer Grand Master and Trainer and he is trying for Dr. Prasad's well being. As claimed by Shri Amar Kumar for a layman's understanding he sends Reiki Healing positive Rays after prayer from Kolkata to Gorakhpur for Dr. Prasad's healing. Dr. Prasad said that I know that there is no complete scientific evidence of Reiki Healing and still research is going on at various Universities world wide but I am strongly in need of mental relaxation.
I felt very sad when he told me that he consumes upto 180ml of alcohol under stress before going to bed sometimes daily from the bottles his brother sends to him. I am afraid that he doesnt consume any neurotropic drug in excess in stress some day. He is writing articles on various topics as a columnist for various print media online. He said "My dear friend ,I collected and posted thousands of quotations on my facebook wall for my fans and friends in my list to disseminate knowledge and to educate them so that they could implement on their lives and learn from the best people god gave to the world since the development of science and humanity started." "I DONT GET MANY LIKES on Facebook AS A PUBLIC FIGURE for the status I hold in this country so I also shifted to twitter @praashok. Sometimes I get frustrated BUT STILL I WILL NEVER GIVE UP".His famous quotes are published on meetville.com "I try to guide media in India in the form of my articles which are published in the form of letters to the Editor and I am also active online on Twitter @praashok"."I am writing books so that I can earn royalty. But how much I would get. I have written books on the topics that not everyone would understand and how the marketing of those books can be done at large."The books have been available on leading online stores like amazon.com. He is trying to divert his mind by working for some short term projects which he didnt disclosed. He is not paid for air fare most of the time. He has to travel maximum by train in India. He said that it is ridiculous that he doesnt get reservation and gets name in waiting list for travelling by train. He has to request his friends who are at the top positions in the Indian Railways for VIP quota for which he is not entitled officially. He quoted that "I am maternal great grandson of first president of Independent India. He said that my maternal great grandfather never treated himself as a VIP." His nephew applied for an Indian passport but local intelligence unit and police verification were not performed and executed at the first instance as his mother denied for paying suvidha shulk as they hail from the family of freedom fighters. He again compromised with his principles and used his contacts in state bureucracy for pressurizing them to get his nephews Indian passport work done as a personal work." Dont let him die for the moments when he feels and sees these things before his eyes. Support him for a Noble cause. He is going financially weaker and weaker year after year. He is mostly dependent on his old mother's pension and she provides rashion - breakfast , lunch and dinner for him at home. He is closely and emotionally attached to his nephew and he spent a lot for his marriage from his personal savings as he wanted to see happiness on his face. His nephew and his daughter in law are also severe alcoholic and heavy chain smokers and he is trying to help them from alcohol and drug de-addiction as both his nephew and daughter-in-law are struggling to make their place and successful career in Bollywood. He got inspired and published his best work in the book "Phenomenological Understanding of a Disturbed Child." His daughter-in-law is the gorgeous bollywood actress Swati Sen (inset:right) who studied Arts at Miranda House College , University Of Delhi and later at Film and Television Institute Of India. She got a chance in "Antardwand-The Movie" and won National Award in 2010. She has done exceptional performance only in 6 low budget films shot between 2007 and 2010. Few critiques sometime compare her with the legendry Indian actress Late. Mrs. Smita Patil. Swati Sen falled in love with Dr. Prasad's nephew Devaditya Prasad. Devaditya Prasad is better known by his wife's name. Devaditya Prasad studied Mass Communication at the Amity University , No.1 Private University in India and is a struggling Writer / Assisstant Director in Bollywood.Dr. Prasad doesnt show but he is under great amount of stress. He told that he never married the girl he loved when he was studying abroad. He remembered those golden days when he maintained physical relationship with his american girlfriend. He is an admirer of Rumi and Love. He told me "dear I am not afraid of anything. I am an open minded person and I support strongly livin relationships and its principles which I followed few decades ago abroad and when people considered it a taboo in India. ".He quoted that "I will be a lonely person in my old age as every man needs a life partner.I remember that I was invited to Seychelles once as a Special Expert. When I saw the beautiful faces there after work hours for which the place is famous for I could recall the face of my girlfriend when I met her for the first time during the period when I was studying.Somehow we both seperated." When he sees his future as he was telling me, he stopped and thought for a while. And he just smiled. I am a fan and one of the biggest admirer of him since 1998 when my grandfather introduced me to him.You can send your generous donations to him for his survival in the form of Cheques and Demand Draft at the following address given below in favour of "Dr. Ashoka Jahnavi Prasad", Payble at Gorakhpur , UP , India so that he can live his retired life of a recluse at his home and not in an OLD AGE HOME in the coming time.

Abdus Salam , after his only meeting with him , remarked that he would be best remembered for 'establishing it was still possible to be a polymath in the twentieth century'.Sir Derek Barton , described him as a 'perfect example of twentieth century genius'.By the time he was 35 , he had earned top accolades in medicine , paediatrics , geography , pathology , clinical genetics , psychiatry , surgery , public health , history , anthropology , biology , mathematics and qualifications in aviation medicine.He rose to hold full professorships in several centers and an adjunct full professor of medical anthropology at Columbia University, New york .His major contribution was establishing a link between GABA , Valproate and mania which led to a safer alternative to toxic lithium.He also has a syndrome named after him which links Hashimoto 's with mania.His lectures on 'Philosophical Bankruptcy in Modern day Science' in New York and Philedelphia won wide acclaim .He steadfastly refused any honour and maintained a low profile.Several disputes with colleagues led to retirement to his home town where he is leading the life of a recluse.
