The use of plants as source of medicinal agents lies deep in the roots of antiquity. No one will ever know what led primitive man emerging from his ancestral, origin, to select certain plant material for the treatment of various ailments and diseases though it may be assumed that during the long transition from instinctive behaviour to more rational action, there was a conscious realization that certain roots, leaves, bark, fruits and even plant exudations had some beneficial action. This knowledge and the characteristics of the plant material, or even the entire plant itself, would be remembered for future occasions and the information passed on to others by word of mouth. Later, as different civilizations developed, man was able to communicate his knowledge and ideas, first by carving into stones or clay and later by writing on parchment or paper with the result that his knowledge became known to the coming generations. Reverence may be made to the clay writings from the library of the Assyrian king, to the Ebers Papyrus and to the writings of Dioscorides to indicate sources of our knowledge today about the crude drugs by Arabians, Babylonians, Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, Persians, Romans and Sumarians thousands of years ago. The oldest treatises dealing with Ayurveda are Susruta samhita and Charaka samhita both compiled between 500-300 B.C. The development of the Ayurvedic system of medicine was based on scientific approach and methodology. Many of the drugs used in the traditional systems have stood the test of time. Most of the MAPs are used in the Indian Systems of Medicines and pharmaceutical and oil industries. About 118 species of MAPs of IHR yield essential oils. The Indigenous knowledge about medicinal plants and therapies was composed verbally and passed orally from generation to generation. Much later, some of this information was systematized in treatise forms like Atharveda, Yajurveda, Charak Samhita, Sushrut Samhita, etc. These systematized systems of knowledge about medicinal plants and therapies are included under Ayurveda – the Indian Traditional Medicine System. We are trying to compare the traditional Himalayan materia medica with that used by Ayurved. With the increasing demand of MAPs in the Indian Systems of Medicines, and pharmaceutical and oil industries, the wild populations of the MAPs are facing high pressures. Keeping above in view, and considering importance of number of herbal pharmaceutical industry using plants of high value for production of the eco -Friendly formation. Among the widely used plants cultivation techniques (Agro- technology) and its uses detail describes for farmers and Enterprisers, Academician and Researchers.

The book is described in seven chapters with Prologue explaining the contents of each Chapter and the Epilogue, a brief biography of Durga and her once in a lifetime dream visits abroad. The first chapter is an attribute to the development of the medical science from ancient Vedic scriptures, followed by the description of Unani and Ayurvedic schools of medicine that prevailed in Kashmir, which then got swept over by the sudden boom of allopathic treatment through synthetic drugs, because the system was pronounced to be more efficient for instant relief, besides being systematic, scientific and logical backed further by surgical interventions whenever necessary. The first chapter titles as “Philanthropy of the Physicians then and the Doctrine of the Doctors now” is a very interesting chapter backed by some very interesting case studies. The physicians of the yore are portrayed as true philanthropists as they would simply aim at alleviating the suffering of the sick and curing them back to normalcy with least interest in any material gains in return, while as the extent and quality of the services expected from most of the Doctors in private practice now is a direct function of the amount of fee received. The next two chapters describe the last one year of Durga’s struggle against her perpetual indispositions and the doctor’s apathy or inability to investigate the root cause of the steadily deterioration in her health, the observations of which recorded meticulously and narrated in the book, expose the inimical practices prevailing in the system which inflicts unbearable physical and emotional stresses on the patient who eventually give in as 'Fatal Face Down.’ To know more, grab a copy today!

“Some hollow pain eats within
When one adore just walks away
Away from the mellow halo of thoughts,
he breaks the unknown web of threads
What affection weaves without my will
I do not know what breaks me in
And comes like moisture on my cheeks
I lack that courage to bid him stop
Not well known and still I crawl
Into that storm where the leaves tremble
And lips lack voice to cheep him halt
And pigeons shriek for the wind that warns
That the stranger who just left today
May not think this up and all.
‘ Tis hundred times I scold my mind
To stop this oozing of my heart,
Now I shall build a separate hell
Lest you may find I split in two
Being lost in vain from the start.

Money and muscle power are threatening Indian democracy. It may become kleptocracy if the people do not understand the value of their freedom, if they can’t see through the chicanery of the politicians.
People of India should not be taken for a ride by cunning and corrupt elected leaders. If we fail to the elect right persons as our representatives and entrust the task of governance with them we have failed our duty as a member of a republic. In a country like India, politicians have a number of cunning schemes to keep the people divided; they use religion, caste, and language to create division among the people.
For corrupt politicians, money is not a problem.They are able to grab land, indulge in extortion and run any illegal business with the help of dishonest officials and criminals.Thus they make a mockery of democratic institutions, including elections. In this book, an attempt has been made to expose those political characters who have no quality and vision to become our leaders. Being informed citizens we must identify them and discard them through electoral power.
A heart-breaking love story.
