H.L. Chitkara (Author) James Compton Burnett (Author)

The text material of Burnett's books was made up of three components, namely, his observations, notes on medicines and therapeutics, and narratives of case reports. These cold well be divided into 3 parts in a single book. The short write-up on the factual details of Dr. Burnett's life presented in this work is quite bare and stark.

About the authors

H.L. Chitkara

Dr. H.L. Chitkara born in 1924 in a small village Vallah near Lalian in the then tehsil Chiniot (on Chenab) in Pakistan, Dr. H.L. Chitkara grew up in a family practicing and dispensing Unani medicine. He had a consistently distinguished academic career culminating in graduation of pure and applied mathematics, together with Hons. (Advanced Course) in English literature from the prestigious Government College, Lahore. He took up a small job in a Govt. accounts office which he resigned but was obliged to take it up again in Delhi after the partition. While in service, he was fascinated by the study and practice of homeopathy. There being no recognised college, he studied it in private classes, first under the late Rai Sahib Dr. Daya Shankar Kaistha M.D. (Michigan, USA) and then late Dr. V.D. Kashyap, MBBS, a convert homeopath from Lahore. Appearing in the first examination of D.H.S. (Diploma in Homeopathic Science) held by the Delhi Board, he topped the list of successful condidates in 1966. He resigned his job and got completely involved in multifarious activities of homeopathy- academic, Journalistic, and professional organisation, along with private practice. For more than 35 years, he was successively Chief Edition of the Homeopathic Sandesh, of Journal of the Homeopathic Medical Association of India and Resident Editor for the Homeopathic Heritage. Besides homeopathy, his primary interests are the study of alternative medicine, literature and languages (English, Urdu, Persian, Hindi, Punjab, Marathi, rudiments of Arabic, French and Bengal), Indian philosophy (advaite, vedanta) yoga and occult sciences. He was 74 in 1998 and a bachelor.

James Compton Burnett

Dr. James Compton Burnett was born on July 10, 1840 and died April 2, 1901. Dr. Burnett attended medical school in Vienna, Austria in 1865. Alfred Hawkes converted him to homeopathy in 1872 (in Glasgow). In 1876 he took his MD degree. Burnett was one of the first to speak about vaccination triggering illness. This was discussed in his book, Vaccinosis, published in 1884. Along with other nosodes, he introduced the remedy Baccillinum. A prodigious writer he published over twenty books in his lifetime. His book, Fifty Reasons for Being a Homoeopath (1888), is of particular note for beginning homeopaths. J.H. Clarke, Robert T. Cooper, and James Compton Burnett together formed the 'Cooper Club'. This regular meeting of leading British homeopaths was the source of many of the symptoms in Clarke's Dictionary of Materia Medica. Clarke says of Burnett, "during the last twenty years Burnett has been the most powerful, the most fruitful, and the most original force in homeopathy".
