Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla

A Universal Humanitarian,Cosmopolitan and An Ambassador for Global Peace

Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla an Untiring Warrior

Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla as an expert physician and with his untiring service epitomises the very spirit of giving. A true ‘karma yogi’, service without expecting returns is his motto and motivation. As a person who is well-travelled, erudite, well-read and having exposure to different situations, conditions and occasions, Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla qualifies perfectly as a universal humanist and humanitarian in more than one way. Whether it is victims of terrorism, natural disasters, war or anything else, it is the empathy that matters, and empathy must move and individual to action to make a real difference in the lives of those affected.

Though a high-flying professional, Dr.Ramesh Nath never forgot his roots nor did he lose his humanness and compassion, which were lauded on several occasions during his service in both India and abroad. From adopting the village of his birth to putting his own life in danger to serve people throughout, Dr.Ramesh Nath has never shied away from challenges – be they the physical risks they pose, the monetary mountain to climb or the logistical challenges to surmount.

Deeply spiritual, he is a firm believer in the scriptural words

Vasudhaiva kutumbakam

 (the whole world is one family)

Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu

(May all beings everywhere be happy and free).

It is only a person of absolute selflessness and a broad mind who can understand the deep meaning behind the above words, digest and assimilate them and bring them into practice. As humans, we are all caught up in our own little worlds and challenges thereon. Only a truly universal humanist and a wholly unselfish individual can go to the root of the above and reflect the same in their thoughts, speech, actions and activities. They are the greatest reformers and positive guides to society.

A study of the lives of Mahatma Gandhi, Abdul Kalam or Nelson Mandela will only show how they epitomized the above. Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla in our present day is definitely one among those shining luminaries who brings wide perspective across all areas – regionally, nationally and internationally.

Turkey–Syria Earthquake

On 6-Feb-2023, a powerful earthquake shook the Turkey–Syria region. There was widespread damage spread over 350,000 sq km and the damage was catastrophic. Overnight, more than 1.5 million people were left homeless and about 14 million people were affected.

Even before it was declared one of the deadliest disasters in modern history, Dr. Ramesh Nath Lingutla immediately understood the gravity of the damage and the humanitarian crisis unfolding there given on his world-wide travel, background in medicine and previous experience in these scenarios. The humanitarian in him, one transcending all barriers and boundaries, arose and he immediately plunged into action.

The first was to create an awareness on the situation and the second was the raise of funds to support the victims. Normally, when people are far away, they are unable to relate to the pain of victims of natural calamities or catastrophises. It is a part of human psychology and the physician in Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla perfectly understood that.

The death toll was rising fast and Dr.Ramesh was driven to make a difference. He realized the power of unity and service and immediately took steps to reach out to various NGOs and other organizations.

Along with the Reach Global Foundation (of which Dr.Ramesh Nath is the chairman), other organizations like the Rotary club, Lions Club, Junior Chambers(JCs), Red Cross, Walker’s Association, Way Foundation, Govindadamam etc., all came together under one common banner and theme and a joint coordination committee was formed. Under his effective leadership, a press meet was conducted, and a rally was subsequently organized.

This joint power and team work not only helped reach more people and create the necessary awareness in and around the Thirupathi area, but was also instrumental in gathering much-needed funds to help the people of Turkey and Syria. A powerful and moving orator, he gave interviews to various channels and urged one and emphasized on the message of universal peace brotherhood and support for each other as fellow humans during a natural disaster, how various agencies were working under difficult weather conditions (-4°C), the destruction of buildings and infrastructure and how the event was an overall heart-breaking event.

It is notable that apart from the physical rally, Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla also took a lead in contributing generously to the Rotary Foundation in support of the victims of the earthquake.

The event was widely publicised and well covered in different media channels and newspapers. It only went on to prove the absolute humanitarian and humanist that Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla is. His kindness is not limited to his people, his state or his country alone.
