    Respected Ms. Shailaja Chandra,

    The panel discussion was inspiring and it would be a good step to explore the benefit of AYURVEDA for the betterment in public health..

    I feel that, the ayurvedic principles should be shared to SCIENTISTS – not to allopathic doctors or medical fraternity. they are not involved in such discussions. Once they get into this system Ayurveda will grow like anything.. I think you can take an initiative for the same. .

      You are right but my contacts are only with Doctors because of my experience in Health Ministry.However do see the Chapter in my second report titled “Initiatives with a Difference” in which I have summarised some initiatives taken by scientists.

    Dear Shailajaji
    Congratulations for completing second part of landmark study on ISM.Very interesting discussion. Integration is really a way ahead. Champions like Dr Trehan and Geetha together with facilitators like you will only expedite this much needed transition. I will be happy to cover a summary of discussions in J-AIM in addition to a Book Review.
    My very best wishes
    Bhushan Patwardhan
