Bathini Mrugasira Fish Medicine Photos: Stuffed Live Sardines To Cure Asthma

PHOTOS Essay of members of the Goud family administering “fish medicine” to an asthma patient in Hyderabad, India.

Started by the Bathini Goud family, the therapy is a secret formula of herbs, handed down by generations only to family members. The herbs are inserted in the mouth of a live sardine, or murrel fish, and slipped into the patient’s throat.

Rumours that the Goud family own the country’s largest sardine farm are unfounded.
