(24 December 2017, Kolkata, India )
The West Bengal Chapter of the Antar Rashtriya Sahyog Parishad along with the Ayush Darpan Foundation successfully organised a two day international conference on Ayurveda in Kolkata on 23-24 December 2017 at the Bhartiya Bhasha Parishad.  Titled “Ayurveda as a medicine system to address contemporary health challenges in an effective, efficient, affordable and holistic way- Perspectives on Policy and Practice,” the conference was inaugurated by the Governor of West Bengal H.E. Sh. Kesharinath Tripathi.

While reminiscing his younger days in Uttar Pradesh as a lawyer when he fought a famous case for Ayurveda, the Hon’ble Governor during his speech underlined the imperative need to mainstream Ayurveda in the health framework of the country to deliver wellness to the citizens. He also congratulated Sh. Kunjbihari Singhania and ex-ambassador Manish Uprety F.R.A.S. to make ARSP a platform to promote Ayurveda which has been an integral part of the Indian culture and traditions in the field of health sciences for aeons.

The conference was also addressed by Dr. Rajni Sarin FICMCH and Sh. B. L. Gaur of the ARSP, famous Marma specialist Prof. Sunil Joshi from Rishikul, Haridwar, Dr. A.K.S. Rawat, from NBRI-CISR, Dr. Navin Joshi, co-founder of ADF, Dr. A. Raghu, Deputy Advisor to the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India, Dr. Premchand Boojhawon from  Mauritius and; renowned expert of Tibetan medicine Dr. Jamyang Dolma among others. Renowned citizens of Kolkata and young medical students of the AYUSH discipline from across the country were among the attendees along with members of the international diplomatic community.

Dr. Premchand Boojhawon, President of Human Service Trust and the Mahatma Gandhi Ayurved Hospital in Mauritius mentioned that Sh. Kunjbihari Singhania is the one who is actually carrying forward the legacy of the late Sh.  Baleshwar Agrawal, founder of ARSP, in a true sense by highlighting Swadeshi themes that have a tremendous relevance to benefit the contemporary world.

 

The highlight of the ARSP conference was the Marma Chikitsa Shivir organised by Prof. Sunil Joshi of Rishikul, Haridwar that provided diagnosis and consultation to over 1000 patients.  Marma Chikitsa is a significant aspect of the Ayurvedic treatments and the purpose of a Marma Abhayangam is to stimulate the various body organs and systems.  It is also world’s oldest medical practice and Prof. Joshi is a leading exponent of Marma Chikitsa who is very much in demand across the world for his expertise of the subject.

Sh. Kunjbihari Singhania, Secretary of the West Bengal chapter of ARSP said that he is confident that the conference would help mainstream the use of Ayurveda in the health policy framework of the country, both at the national and state levels, to deliver holistic health solutions and wellness to the peoples in an effective, efficient and affordable manner. The Swadeshi system of Ayurveda needs a tremendous effort by the concerned authorities and institutional support to increase its share in the healthcare sector as by 2020 the Ayurvedic products will have less than 3% share of the Indian healthcare market, which is a very serious issue demanding immediate attention.

An appeal was also made to the attendees on behalf of SAKSHAM, a national organisation working to empower the differently-abled, for its programme CAMBA  to help realise a corneal blindness free India by 2018 and also to make a pledge to donate one’s eyes.
