BANGALORE: Inaugurating a research unit in ‘Vrkshayurveda’ developed by the Centre for Advanced Studies in Biosciences (CASB) at Jain College on Wednesday, noted environmentalist, Dr A N Yellappa Reddy lamented that though there are thousands of ayurvedic colleges and ayurvedic doctors in our country, it is has taken decades to start a  research centre.

Speaking on the occasion, he said, “We need to integrate our life with natural sciences. Science has progressed at a phenomenal speed.” He further said that science has invented many things and has solved many problems. But science has created several problems too. For instance, medicinal sciences have controlled and prevented many infectious diseases, but has simultaneously added several infectious diseases.

He called upon the young students to save the eco-system. During the occasion, ‘A Bibliography on Sanskrit Works in Life Sciences’, was released. The book authored by Dr S Sundara Rajan, Director of CASB, consists of the history of Botany in Ancient India. “In the field of medical sciences the world is coming back to ayurveda. India has the inherent ability to adapt itself to the change in the environment. We need to harmonise with the environment,” said Dr Sundara Rajan.
