Studies in Ancient Indian Medicine (Post-Doctoral Research papers published in Journals)
Description
About the Book:

In this book the author interprets historical facts with data drawn from the medical literature of India. Indian religious principles, rules and beliefs, as well as many practices and habits, noticed in literary sources and in the accounts of foreign travelers, are analysed, interpreted and shown as supported by data drawn from Ayurvedic texts. Thus the existence of a close and vital link between the medical world and the social, religious and political life of India has been clearly traced.

About the Author:

Dr. Aparna Chattopadhyay has been carrying on research in unbroken continuity since her college days, and has more than 200 published papers. She was elected a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland in 1966. She worked in Banaras Hindu University for 29 as a Lecturer and as a Reader.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
