About : 

  • AYUSH systems of healthcare form the foundation of India’s Medical Heritage. These systems are not merely sciences of disease and drug, but have their conceptual spheres touching every aspect of life. Path-finding visionaries have appeared in each of the different streams of AYUSH systems at different times in history and made valuable contributions to the growth and development of respective practices.
  • Department of Posts is bringing out Commemorative Postage Stamps on 12 such Master Healers from different streams of AYUSH systems.
    • Mohammad Abdul Aziz Lakhnawi: Born on 24th September 1854 in Lucknow, Mohammad Abdul Aziz Lakhnawi was an illustrious physician and an outstanding teacher. He established a Medical School in Lucknow in 1902 and named it Takmil al-Tibb, meaning, completion of education in Medicine. His fame was so widespread that students and practitioners used to come to him for study not just from different parts of India, but also from Afghanistan and Central Asian countries. His Medical School is now a reputed College maintained by the Government of Uttar Pradesh.
