Students of over 7,500 schools and universities connected to Saturday’s webinar. In the next one year, the Ministry of Ayush aims at connecting with students of 75,000 educational institutions through a series of lectures and distributing the IEC material.
In his address, Minister of State for Ayush Dr MunjparaMahendrabhai said the current fast-paced social norms keep the youth disconnected from nature, “Ayush systems have advocated a number of simple practices that can help us reconnect with our authentic selves,” he said.
Dr Munjparaadded that education plays a vital role in saving minds. “Our traditional systems of healing are being widely accepted throughout the world and our traditional healthcare system is fully functional”.
A presentation was also shown to the students which introduced the Ayush streams and their history. Quotes from celebrities and sportspersons vouching for the Ayush systems were also shown to the participating students after which the presentation went into the details of what Ayush systems can offer to the youth in terms of battling the problems of modern day life such as backache and increasing screen time.

Addressing the participating students, Vaidya Jayant Deopujari, Chairman, National Council of Indian System of Medicine, said that taking care of the health of the youth was important in today’s circumstances as they play a huge role in nation building. “The methods of Ayush are very effective for keeping healthy,” he said. He, however, warned that Ayurveda, which is an important stream of Ayush, should be understood through scriptures and research papers and not through WhatsApp (forwards).
All India Institute of Ayurveda Director Dr. Tanuja Nesari told students that huge improvements can be brought in life by adopting the Ayurvedic lifestyle. “PM Narendra Modi has also praised Ayush systems in his monthly address of 'Mann Ki Baat'. "Make Ayush practices a part of your life to realize the dream of a healthy India” she said.
