तिरुवनंतपुरम | पी.के. वॉरियर आयुर्वेद के ध्वजवाहक और केरल की पारंपरिक चिकित्सा प्रणाली के लोकप्रिय प्रतिपादकों में से एक वारियर का शनिवार को 100 वर्ष की आयु में उनके गृहनगर मलप्पुरम जिले में निधन हो गया। उनके निधन के बाद शोक व्यक्त करने का सिलसिला जारी है।
अपने निजी अनुभव को याद करते हुए पूर्व रक्षा मंत्री ए.के. एंटनी ने कहा कि एक दिन उन्हें तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री पी.वी. नरसिम्हा राव ने कहा था कि श्रीलंका के तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री सिरिमावो भंडारनायके अस्वस्थ थी और चलने में असमर्थ थीं, इसलिए कई चर्चाओं के बाद यह निर्णय लिया गया कि वह आयुर्वेदिक उपचार से गुजरेंगी।
एंटनी ने कहा, "यह तय किया गया था कि वह (सिरीमावो भंडारनायके) तिरुवनंतपुरम के लिए उड़ान भरेगी और केरल के राज्यपाल के आधिकारिक आवास पर रहेगी, जबकि वारियर के नेतृत्व में आयुर्वेद डॉक्टरों की एक टीम ने उनका इलाज शुरू किया। वह एक स्ट्रेचर पर आई थी और मैं उन्हें लेने के लिए हवाई अड्डे पर जाना था लेकिन इलाज के बाद, जब मैं उन्हें विदा करने गया तो मैंने उन्हें मुस्कुराते हुए और अच्छे से चलते हुए देखा।"
एंटनी ने कहा, "वॉरियर एक विनम्र और सरल व्यक्ति थे, लेकिन अपने विषय में ज्ञान का भंडार थे। आयुर्वेद के सबसे प्रमुख प्रतिपादकों में से एक ने हमें छोड़ दिया है, जो एक बहुत बड़ी क्षति है।"
वह इस साल जून में 100 साल के हो गए थे, लेकिन कोविड -19 से संक्रमित थे, जिसके बाद वे मूत्र संबंधी बीमारियों से पीड़ित थे।
वह आयुर्वेद उपचार केंद्र कोट्टक्कल आर्य वैद्य शाला के प्रबंध न्यासी थे, जो आयुर्वेद दवाओं का उत्पादन करता है।
वह 1999 में पद्म श्री और 2010 में पद्म भूषण के प्राप्तकर्ता थे। उनकी पत्नी स्वर्गीय माधविकुट्टी के वारियर एक कवि थीं।
केरल के राज्यपाल आरिफ मोहम्मद खान ने पी.के. वॉरियर के निधन पर शोक व्यक्त किया।
खान ने कहा, "एक चिकित्सक के रूप में, वह आयुर्वेद की वैज्ञानिक खोज के लिए प्रतिबद्ध थे। उन्हें आयुर्वेद के आधुनिकीकरण में उनके उत्कृष्ट योगदान के लिए याद किया जाएगा। एक मानवतावादी के रूप में, उन्होंने समाज में सभी के लिए अच्छे स्वास्थ्य और सम्मान के जीवन की कल्पना की। उनका निधन पीके वारियर चिकित्सा बिरादरी के लिए एक बहुत बड़ी क्षति है।"
केरल के मुख्यमंत्री पिनराई विजयन ने कहा कि वॉरियर के प्रयासों ने ही आयुर्वेद को दुनिया भर में एक नया आयाम और स्वीकार्यता प्रदान की है क्योंकि उनके मजबूत वैज्ञानिक आधार के साथ वे आयुर्वेद को पेश करने और प्रोजेक्ट करने में सक्षम थे। (एजेंसी)
