A Textbook of Kaumarbhritya Volume 1
Subject: Kaumarbhritya Parichaya (Ayurvedic Pediatrics)
The idea of writing this book was influenced by the views and perception of the students on an Ideal book of Kaumarabhritya, which is "neither lengthy and nor too short - but adequate enough to impart right knowledge". The book is constructed based on the New Syllabus provided by Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) where Kaumarabhritya is now being thought in III rd Year of BAMS. The Part A of the Syllabus is presently being published as Volume I and Part B will be published separately as Volume II in short span of time. The book is primarily written by keeping in mind, the undergraduate students of Ayurveda. However, it can be useful to even postgraduate students and clinicians too. The information regarding Kaumarabhritya from various lexicons of Ayurveda has been critically analyzed and described in simpler form. The language used in the book is quite easy to understand and does not require the usage of any dictionary. The concepts have been summarized by integrating needy images and flow charts. The book is an amalgam of ancient concepts interpreted in modern scientific language for the easy understanding of the mundane as well as the brilliant undergraduate students. The author's point of view has been presented at few contexts which required clarity by considering all the relevant scientific aspects and existing day knowledge. These inscriptions will be a matter of help to students in order to understand the complex subjects/ concepts without any difficulty.
