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.
    • K. Raghavan Thirumulpad was an eminent Ayurvedic and Sanskrit Scholar, who inspired generations of Ayurveda students. He was a proponent of classical Ayurveda and symbolized a harmonious mix of ethics and rationality in the practice of medicine. He published more than 42 books. Motivated by nationalist movement, he participated in the propagation of Khadi. He founded Ayurvedic Medical Practitioners Hospital and Industrial Co-operative Society (AMPHIC) of Ayurveda Physicians running a manufacturing unit of quality Ayurveda medicines in 1970. A grateful nation conferred the honour of Padma Bhushan on him posthumously.
