I feel immense pleasure to write the foreword to the book 'Vyavaharayurveda and Vidhivaidyaka' authored by Dr. Binay Sen, Lecturer, Agadatantra and Vidhi Ayurveda, Government Ayurvedic College and Hospital, Atarra, Banda (UP). In Semhitii period among eight branch of Ayurveda, this is taken as Vi$agaravairodhika- ptesemen«, Agadatantra, Yise-cikitss, Demstii: and so on. According to need of time this branch is developed and it covers some of the untouched aspect which are essential to enlighten at present era to make it Dr. Binay Sen had done both M.D. (Ay) and Ph.D. under my supervision. Since then he has been dedicated to the classical approach, analytical and critical thinking about the principles as well as the contents of the Ayurveda. Being scholar of Dravyaguna, this commendable work of Dr. Sen in the present context is highly appreciable.

All the chapters and their contents are arranged according to the prescribed syllabus of CCIM, New Delhi. Their presentations are very systemic ground, neither concise nor too detail easy to read and understand even with meager knowledge of English language and subjects also ......... and almost all possible aspects. Looking at the subject matters especially Vyavaharayurveda and Vidhivaidyaka, Death, Injury, Weapons, Violent asphyxial death, Sexual offences and Sexual perversions, Medical ethics and Types of Vaidya seem that the author has gone through the very depth to the knowledge of both Ayurveda and contemporary Forensic medicine. I believe on and confident that this book will provide a unique plethora for the students as well as research scholars.

This is my blessing to Dr. Binay Sen that he continues academic work with full devotion in future.



Writing a text book on Vyavahariiyurveda and Vidhivaidyaka has been definitely a challanging task to me. The contents of Vyavahariiyurveda, though scattered in Ayurvedic texts, found more flourished and ethically sound in perspective of practice of medicine, leading a healthy individual and social life than any other system. On the other hand, the contents of Vidhivaidyaka is not much more developed or relevant to the prevailing Forensic medicine. In ancient Ayurveda, it is observed that physicians were asked to keep away from giving evidence in the court of law as well as the prognosis of patient should not be disclosed to patient/family members. Perhaps it might have certain legal restrictions then. Time has changed and many principles, techniques, methods, newer amendment in the Laws and Acts are being adopted and forced among the health professionals. Health care delivery system has got top most attention in the global scenerio. Unfortunately, most of the Ayurvdic doctors those are rendering health services especially in periphery handling many medica-legal cases for the patient interest are not being protected by the legal system. Ayurveda laid down the one of the codes of medical ethics as : ....................

It means a physician should always make effort to provide health to the patient by all means even at the cost of own's life. If a legal supporting system is not developed, there will always be a conflict between the medical ethics and the professional negligence. To practice Vyavahariiyurveda and Vidhivaidyaka (Forensic medicine and Medical jurisprudence) the Council (CCIM, New Delhi), policy makers and lagislators must come foreward with keen interest to provide some provisions in the Regulations, Laws and Acts, so that Ayurvedic physician will be legally allowed to handle certain medico-legal cases in their day to day practice. An integration will be helpful with Forensic discipline in providing training, conducting part- time diploma or certificate courses to the teachers may enable to overcome such legal restrictions.

The aim and objective of this book is to explore some hidden concept of the subject matter and their relevancy in contemporary practice of legal medicine. It has been a great endavour to me for such work, which need experization in practical and theoritical knowledge of Forensic medicine and legal procedures. I'm fortunate enough to had some exposures in Forensic medicine during my under graduate study, which helped me a lot while incorporating the subject matters in the present form.

I have strong believe on the part of above verse and always be looking forward for valuable concerns, suggestions, thoughts, ideas and especially for indicating those error done in this work.
