Commonsense, logic and clarity provide an ageless quality to Ayurveda knowledge for health care. Ayurvedic institutions along with its teachers, students and practitioners are in despair – a crisis similar to that faced by contemporary Western medicine compatriots. We envision vaidya-scientists,
a scholarly group of change agents, who are well versed in the richness of the Ayurveda classics – and the details and insights of modern biology. While acknowledging the need to create physician scientists in India, we portray here a tentative roadmap for creating Vaidya-Scientists as ambassadors to catalyse a much needed Ayurveda renaissance to invigorate and renew its teaching, research and practice.
