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.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
