One day it happened to notice the limping of a sheep lamb and taking a kindness to it, applied a herbal paste prepared from the plants located in the puttur hills. He is surprised to notice the quick recovery of the sheep lamb. Later, Gopala Raju tested this herbal paste on other animals before successfully applying this medicine on Humans.
