But he became a source of inspiration through his writings and scientific outlook for many of his students. In the eighties, along with many likeminded souls all over India he joined in Rational Drug Movement-an endeavour to stop irrational use of drugs. He edited BODHI, a bimonthly medical bulletin and Asukh-Bisukh, a Bengali periodical for common people and spread awareness about scientific approach to medicine. He was also very expressive against superstitions and irrational beliefs and his writings were published in Utsha Manush- a strong force in the Peoples Science Movement in Bengal. Professor Sarkar has later on moved to a small village in Bankura and started a Project-AMADER HASPATAL. It is a model of low cost scientific medical care which is run on donation from common people.
