Readers are earnestly requested to go through this subject with unprejudiced mind, open heart and the intellect compassionate for the suffering and ailing human society at large. Perhaps, Ayurveda is the only medical science, which comprises many other medical sciences. It could be proved, some medical sciences have their roots in Ayurveda, some hold their basic concepts borrowed from Ayurveda. Some are offshoots of Ayurveda. So many qualities Ayurveda possesses which are required for new compilation of Human Medical science, the dire need of the day in the medical field. I suppose, this work would surely help dispel off the mis-understandings and misconcepts regarding Ayurveda.
