Obesity in Ayurveda

Tribute – Memories


My son Er. Harihara Prasad Kethamakka – In my memories for past 10 years – ever ended

Bye- bye to 2012


As usually the year 2012 is completed and 2013 is ready to begin. Many things happen to motivate the common man and direct him to understand the present day situations. The year even though not out reaching in Ayurveda, many events happen and many Ayurvedics participate with their researches in many seminars or events. Ayurveda curriculum took a new phase to start “New CCIM syllabus”, with one year pattern study. History repeats after 30 years once again.

This decision is good in one way, but the desertions and adding Itihasa (history) in Padartha Vijnana hurt many Ayurveda lovers. We were demanding long time to add this history of Ayurveda in Sanskrit subject written in Sanskrit language. Adding this history in a scientific subject Padartha Vijnana is not a valid justification. In fact the Padartha Vijnana should be added with Vedic Bio-physics, Vedic Bi-chemistry and made this subject more authenticated with comprehensive scientific background of the technological based Ayurveda.

When the entire world is looking for the evidence, the Ayurveda even though with abundant information, knowledge and evidence is not capable of presenting the same in front of the scientific community. The research strategy of Ayurveda is with confusion with which we are able to get the more answers than what we want to present in scientific forum. With in a fixed framework of research, the Ayurveda is not capable of expressing or other wise the Ayurveda is not best expressive with artificial scientific terminology or pseudo-scientific terminology. Few of Ayurveda researches of fabricated or plagiarism practices, making the distance in Ayurveda success. It is right time to take necessitate actions and makes an oath of regularized authenticated scientific studies of research to initiate in 2013. Technoayurveda is extending a helping hand for researchers as “COAR” i.e. Center for Organizing Ayurveda Research.

Repeated statements of substandard education in Ayurveda have vanished by reducing the staff standards to improve the curriculum by CCIM. This action is a boon for the private institutions and also for government colleges, as there is no much payments required for staff or any time bound promotions are to be made. One more facility is also offered by the CCIM to any Ayurveda institution with in the Governance.  In any institution, either of professor or Asst. Professor is required as senior and the second staff can be a junior of no experience. This action made at least 2500 senior staff to be on the road. Of course, it may not bring any difference to the senior retired staff who is working as “paper tiger” but a vast for the people who think to bring the difference in Ayurveda curriculum. Funniest thing is – a 43 full pledged staff could not make the standards of CCIM in the past years but 30 teachers out of which 50% is with no experience can cook the “Ayurveda curriculum” in a best way. CCIM’s new policy accepts this 13 staff of difference could be hired from Allopathic to run the hospital in “scientific manner”.

Did any time any body think a while, what could be the reason for this situation? In the public whether we have faith or sympathy? The Ayurveda is scientific or was scientific and unable to reach the present day scientific attitudes? All these questions are lingering in the mind for long time and continuous even in 2013. Let us hope 2013 offers the value based education and research.

The first and foremost is to regulate the curriculum with realistic values added with well trained teachers. A teacher training is a must to elevate the value based education. It is proved many times that the higher education may not be sufficient to make either a teacher or researcher with out a proper training incorporated. That too expecting such from a paid seat Ayurveda post graduate, under the supervision of paper guides is a real high anticipation. Let us hope the in 2013 all reduced staff will rise the standard of Ayurveda in colleges and make more and more researches paper researches with in the frame of scientific attitude.

In the foot steps of Mahatma Gandhi, let Ayurveda people not to hear any scientific, not to see any scientific and not to speak any scientific, and we live as we are and as we like. Let the Ayurveda or science go any where, but we promise to be behind the magic money. Wish you a happy new year 2013.


Third Alternative

My problem with your problem is our problem

The way we look in to the problem may give a specific direction of solution. The same problem may be seen in another angle offer another solution. But when it is examined form our attitude certainly offers a better resolution. In our Ayurveda Science we face lots of problems either from Board, Governance, Administration, Faculty, Students or Society. It is very much necessary to look from the “Third Alternative” angle to find a long term solution.

It is an understanding that an organization with out any controversies in the functionality disappears soon from the market. Ayurveda has many more problems for its survival in the present day situations. The negative statement or sentence is not anticipated by any institutions. They feel it as developmental inhibitors. But the fact is these negations offer a better way to reach the Goal. From our PG dept of DGM Ayurvedic Medical College, Gadag, always some or other compliant or requests are flooding to Principal. When explanation is called for, I said as we are working you are getting the feedback. It is the time to resolute and plans for the best.


At present in any Ayurveda institute we have Patient, Student, Administration and the Governing bodies as the pillars. Why not the compromised understanding systematic development is planned as Third alternative? All have problems – students say, no quality education is offered, institutions say, the funding is insufficient, Teachers say, no proper remunerations, Governance say, no norms are followed and ultimately the consumer patient on whom the entire system is dependent say, no confidence is bought from this system. Let the all groups sit together and make a synergistic direction of third alternative.

Asthi Srunkhala

Asthi Srunkhala [Cissus-quadrangularis]

Cissus quadrangularis [1] has a long leaf less stem with fleshy, glabrous, much contracted at the nodes, quadrangular, tendril climber. Young branches are winged, broadly ovate leaves, denticulate and glabrous, truncate or cuneate at the base. Some aerial roots arising from the nodes grow downwards and strike the soil. Small greenish flowers in shortly peduncled cymes with spreading umbellate branches. It is probably native to India or Sri Lanka, but is also found in AfricaArabia, and Southeast Asia. It has been imported to Brazil and the southern United States [5]. . . . . . . . .

A special case study with Asthisrunkhala Taila in Osteoporosis

In 1998, when I am working with ALNRaoAyurvedicMedicalCollege, Koppa, Mr. A. Ramesh Rao, Chairman sent a patient to me. When I examined it is diagnosed case of Osteopenia and the patient is under contemporary treatment for more than 1 year. Osteopenia symptoms include Back pain along with pricking pain in long bones. I apply Ayurveda principles – as Vatahara and Asthiposhana and preapare the Asthisrunkhala + Bala taila for Matravasti. The 40ml of Matravasti is added with 1gm of Shankha Bhasma for 15 days. The result is astonishing apart from the symptomatic relief the BMD is normal at the 16th day. Later on several cases were treated on the same basis.  [Read more]

Forgotten Story

Our story begins long, long ago. In fact, more than 210 million years ago. (One million = 10,00,000). It was a time when giant dinosaurs ruled the earth. They were the undisputed kings of the planet for 100 million years. So long was their reign, that we human beings find it more convenient to count their time period in Eras, rather than in years or even million years. At that time in the past, the earth itself did not resemble the planet as we know it now. There existed a huge land mass, called Pangaea (or as some scientists call it Gondwanaland), that lay across the sphere, running from the north pole to south pole, of our infant earth.

The temperatures then were generally warmer — allowing plants and animals to live at much higher northern and southern latitudes. Therefore, dinosaurs roamed across the land mass, and adapted themselves to live even in the regions near the extreme poles.

About 210 million years ago, the giant continent Pangaea, began to disintegrate and drift apart. Where the lands separated, the waters of the ocean rushed in to form new seas. Over the next 120 million years, the massive pieces of Pangaea drifted across the oceans of the earth, taking up new positions.

North America and Europe, which had been a single land mass drifted apart, and the Atlantic Ocean spread out between then. The African Continent floated lazily for millions of years, before it joined up with Asia. Gradually, the world began to assume more of its modern-day appearance. [see more]

Gondwana (pronounced /ɡɒndˈwɑːnə/[1][2]), originally Gondwanaland, is the name given to a southern precursor supercontinent. Its final geological suturing occurred between ca. 570 and 510 million years ago (Ma), joining East Gondwana to West Gondwana.[3] It later separated from Laurasia 180-200 million years ago during the breakup of the Pangaea supercontinent that existed about 500 to 200 Ma into two large segments, nearly equal in area.[4] While the corresponding northern-hemisphere continent Laurasia moved further north, Gondwana drifted south. It included most of the landmasses in today’s southern hemisphere, including Antarctica, South America, Africa, Madagascar, Australia-New Guinea, and New Zealand, as well as Arabia and the Indian subcontinent, which have now moved entirely into the Northern Hemisphere.

The continent of Gondwana was named by Austrian scientist, Eduard Suess, after the Gondwana region of central northern India (from Sanskrit gondavana “forest of the Gonds“), from which the Gondwana sedimentary sequences (Permian-Triassic) are also described.

The adjective “Gondwanan” is in common use in biogeography when referring to patterns of distribution of living organisms, typically when the organisms are restricted to two or more of the now-discontinuous regions that were once part of Gondwana, including the Antarctic flora. For example, the Proteaceae, a family of plants that is known only from southern South America, South Africa, and Australia are considered to have a “Gondwanan distribution”. This pattern is often considered to indicate an archaic, or relict, lineage. [wikipedia]

The Indian subcontinent, also Indian Subcontinent and other terms, is a region of the Asian (and, in turn, the Eurasian) continent on the Indian tectonic plate south of the Himalayas, forming a land mass which extends southward into the Indian Ocean.

In the beginning, the land that was to become India, lay almost at the South Pole of the earth, tucked in between two other land masses, that would eventually become Antarctica and Australia.

When the land mass broke up in the southern regions, Australia was set adrift. So, too, was the triangular plate, that would eventually become India. This plate of land floated steadily north, towards the mass of land that would one day become Asia.

While the continents were adrift, the dinosaurs achieved the peak of their reign. They had ruled the earth for million years. But quite abruptly (in terms of the planet’s life span) they disappeared from the face of the earth, never to be seen again.

The race of creatures that benefited the most from the disappearance of these terrible dinosaurs, was a group of tiny rat-like creatures — the precursors of mammals and man.

As the floating Indian sub-continent approached Asia, the sea was forced out. Finally, about 50 million years ago, the two vast land masses met head on. As India rammed into Asia, there were terrible upheavals on both sides.

On the Asian side, the land was pushed upwards, creating the high lands of Tibet. On the Indian side, two giant slabs of rock were pushed up into the sky. These were to become the mighty Himalayas — the highest mountains in the world. The force of collision of the floating land mass was so great that for millions of years, the land was in upheaval. During this time, the Himalayas were shaped. The rocks rose upwards and then tumbled aside — again and again — as fresh seismic activity shook the newly formed regions.

Finally, the force of collision of the floating land mass was exhausted. The Himalayas, as we now know them, had been formed. The remnants of the pre-historic oceans, that had closed in, were lifted thousands of feet high into the mountains and became the two great watersheds of the region.

Flowing to the east were the Ganges and the Brahmaputra. Flowing to the west were the five rivers, which formed the basin of the Indus Valleys. Along these river valleys, millions of years later, would grow some of the world’s greatest civilizations.

The sub-continent of India had been born!

The India or Indian Plate is a tectonic plate that was originally a part of the ancient continent of Gondwanaland from which it split off, eventually becoming a major plate. About 50 to 55 million years ago, it fused with the adjacent Australian Plate. It is today part of the major Indo-Australian Plate, and includes the subcontinent of India and a portion of the basin under the Indian Ocean.

In the late Cretaceous Period about 90 million years ago, subsequent to the splitting off from Gondwanaland of conjoined Madagascar and India, the India Plate split from Madagascar. It began moving north, at about 20 cm/yr (8 in/yr) [1], and began colliding with Asia between 50 and 55 million years ago, in the Eocene epoch of the Cenozoic Era. During this time, the India Plate covered a distance of 2,000 to 3,000 km (1,200 to 1,900 mi), and moved faster than any other known plate. In 2007, German geologists determined that the reason the India Plate moved so quickly is that it is only half as thick as the other plates which formerly constituted Gondwanaland.[1]

The collision with the Eurasian Plate along the boundary between India and Nepal formed the orogenic belt that created the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalaya Mountains, as sediment bunched up like earth before a plow.

The India Plate is currently moving northeast at 5 cm/yr (2 in/yr), while the Eurasian Plate is moving north at only 2 cm/yr (0.8 in/yr). This is causing the Eurasian Plate to deform, and the India Plate to compress at a rate of 4 mm/yr (0.15 in/yr).

It undergo lots of threats and invasions mean while till 1947. When we look back – deceptions, wars, forcible religion shifts, bribes, destruction of Heritage and culture, Intellectual piracy, Physical book information grabbing, etc. were went on. Even though we got physical Independence in 1947, psychologically we at slavery even today. The Japan who got destroyed in second world war got reconstructed but the in-dependent  INDIA looking forward someone to come and lift us.

As an Ayurveda Practitioner we have to make a commitment to tell about our science and heritage at least  for one in a day. JAI HIND
