"The results of your investigations have been a revelation to me. I had, until I read the, no idea of the high level, which the Ancient Indians had attained in the surgical treatment of diseases.... I cannot refrain from complimenting you on the wideness of your reading. You seem to be as familiar with Hippocrates and Celsus, as with Susruta and Charaka... I used to wonder a little at the interest which Dr. Hoernle and other able men took in Indian medicine. But Dr. Hoernle's Osteology opened my eyes a little and your disquisitions have enabled me to form a wider acquaintance with the whole subject". - Charles H. Tawney. "The elaborate work on the "Surgical Instrument of the Hindus" evinces varied learning, diligent research and admirable skill in methodical arrangement and it will rank as a valuable contribution to Indian Medical literature". - Gooroo Das Bajerjee. "No one could have done greater justice to the subject. The author of such a work should combine in him a thorough knowledge of modern surgery, the critical method of the west, and a vast acquaintance with Sanskrit medical literature. It is sourcely necessary to add that in you one can readily recognise a rare and harmonious combination of all these requisite qualities". - Dr. P.C. Ray.
