The whole of Vannarapettai has been in grief with the passing away of a doctor, fondly called as 5 rupees doctor. Jayachandran belonged to Kodaipattinam village in Kalpakkam, and belonged to an agricultural family, even for an emergency there was no hospital in the village, and hence people had to travel 30 kilometers to reach a hospital, and even for snake or scorpion bites, this was the situation.
To change this, Jayachandran studied well, and became a doctor, and decided to offer medical services for low cost. He opened a clinic in 1971, and he got only 2 rupees as fees from his patients, and then after some time he got 5 rupees.
For 41 years he had been doing this and became the god of the area, and was called as 5 rupees doctor. He had been helping many people, and had also written many books, and yesterday, he had passed away, due to health ailments, and he was 71.
