In India, Dr P Sankaran was one of the main persons responsible for the propagation of the Repertory during the 1960s. At that time, the dominant school of practice was that of the Calcutta Homoeopaths with an emphasis on the Materia Medica to the near exclusion of repertory. One of the first works he authored was the Card Repertory, which was the refinement of the Boger’s Card Repertory. Not finding a publisher, he started his publishing company, and, later on, went on to write and publish 36 small booklets.  This is one of those booklets.

Father of Rajan Sankaran, he practiced at two places in Bombay, visiting each on alternate days. His practice was extremely busy, and he kept up his hectic schedule of practice, teaching, editing, organizing, etc. till the very end. His health gave way. In 1978, cancer in the second stage was diagnosed. He lived for six months after the diagnosis during which time, in between his pains, he managed to write three booklets and write the last one, “The Selection of the Simillimum And The Management of the Patient.”

The publishing company Dr P Sankaran started was The Homoeopathic Medical Publishers, which publishes the works of Rajan Sankaran and other eminent homeopaths today.
