India has been seen a country of spiritual discourses and occult sciences. However, there are some sciences who gave world a vision to develop and excel. Ayurveda is one among them. Since, we lived under foreign rule for a considerable period of time and it influenced our thought process as well as behavioural pattern.
When I ineract to my allopathic doctor friends, they outrightely reject the scientific aspects of Ayurveda and say that Ayurveda is an empirical medicine.
It is pertaining to mention here that the first surgical procedure and instruments were designed by famous Ayurvedic surgeon of India, the Sushruta. It is documented and variefied by Sabiston in his textbook. He mentioned that western writers ignored these ancient Indian surgeons.
The surgery in Ayurveda is a very developed discipline and many procedures and instruments have been mentioned in the Sushruta samhita. As a follower of this discipline, my efforts are to convince the people that we are still in a very confortable condition to treat some diseases. I am not against the allopathic medicines, even I admire the developments in that field.
It is a ripe time to practice and make some research in this field to propagate the science and it is the moral duty of all scientist to prove that Ayurveda is a scientific knowledge and not an empirical one.
