Amorous Saint
Dr. Anurudh Verma

    The Veratrum album is beneficial who pretends himself to be a saint but he is an imposter. Clinical findings of such interpretation will be beneficial to cure allied ailments. He has a delusion of direct communication with god. This is the one face of Veratrum patient. But he is not real saint because he has extra vagence habits and lair, who never speaks the truth. He prays, sings and performs other activity which is only aim for upholding his social position in the society. He is sullen indifference.
