30, Jun 2015

Wants to blend best of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani
Hindu Education Board, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-backed outfit, has proposed an overhaul of the medical education curricula, asking the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry to take steps for incorporating an integrated module taking best elements from Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani systems of medicine.
The right-wing organisation has also proposed inclusion of ancient scholar Panini’s lessons for students of computer science, saying they would be benefited by learning about work of the Sanskrit grammarian and other ancient Bharatiya (Indian) linguistics.
