Oct 6, Mumbai, India: Leading ayurveds in Maharashtra have welcomed the state government’s decision to constitute a study group under the chairmanship of the Minister of Medical Education and Research.
Addressing the media today, leading ayurved Vaidya Ravi Sharma said ”We have been demanding a separate university for Ayurveda for a very long time and the government’s decision to set up a second study group will benefit the people, who are interested in studying Ayurveda.” States like Rajasthan, Chattisgarh and Gujarat have a university for Ayurveda and many other states are following suit.
Mr Sharma added that there are 2 Ayurveda colleges in America, which has recognised the importance of this branch of medicine.
Maharashtra, however, is lagging behind in this section, he lamented.
Sharmaji is deeply involved with Ayurveda since 15 years. His interest and passion led him to launch AyurvedNews.com and AyurShop.in about a decade ago. Most of the Ayurveda news and articles on this site are approved or published by him.
