World Ayurveda Congress: Back-to-back Imperialism of tyrant Islamists and British monarchs drove India away from our rich ancient civilisational heritage. Enslaved with an inferiority complex, Macaulian educated Indians started questioning their own roots. Within no time, India paid a heavy price for this mental and cultural slavery. Even after having a rich as well as holistic wellness program, Indians were caught wanting and the nation had a dilapidated healthcare system.
But thankfully, under PM Narendra Modi, India is rapidly breaking the shackles of the past. Led by PM Modi, the new India is reviving the age old civilisational knowledge be it Yoga or the use of traditional medicine.

Additionally, during the World Ayurveda Congress event, PM Modi virtually inaugurated three new institutes that are dedicated to specific disciplines of traditional sciences. These includes –
- All India Institute of Ayurveda, Goa
- National Institute of Unani Medicine, Ghaziabad
- National Institute of Homeopathy, Delhi
Apart from the new institutions, the PM also announced that the nation will soon have a National AYUSH Research Consortium.
Applauding the effectiveness of Ayurveda and its holistic approach, PM Modi emphasised that after trial and error, the world is finally returning to the ancient treatment methods of Ayurveda.
He said, “The world has tried many treatment methods and now it is returning to the ancient way of Ayurveda. Ayurveda not only talks about physical health but about overall wellness”.
Heralding Ayurveda to new highs
Speaking at the World Ayurveda Congress, PM Modi emphasised the need to spread Ayurveda to new frontiers so that more and more countries give recognition to Ayurveda. Further, he stated that Ayurveda as a traditional medicine system has been accepted in more than 30 nations.
Stressing on the employment aspect, PM Modi argued that Indians should try to get the benefit of growing demand for Ayurveda in the global market. For that, he stressed that more Indians should undertake medicinal plantations.
Hailing his government’s efforts for the progress of Ayurveda, PM Modi highlighted that the Ayush industry has seen a multifold increase. In 2014, the industry was estimated at Rs 20,000 crore but in just eight years it has touched a figure of around Rs 1.50 lakh crore. Further, PM Modi stated that Modern science and treatment rely on the evidence-based database. So, it becomes important that the Ayurveda sectors need to generate such a database. He highlighted that the Ayush Portal maintained by the Central government has around 40,000 research studies.
The Prime Minister also informed that during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Ayush received more than 150 specific research studies. The PM added that the inauguration of the All India Institute of Ayurveda will boast the tourist potential of Goa. The state may witness a new influx on account of Ayurveda and Yoga tourism.
Since 2014, PM Narendra Modi has been making sure that Ayurveda and traditional medicines get their due recognition and they are not sidelined owing to the Macaulian inflicted inferiority complex. Efforts in this direction include the creation of a separate AYUSH Ministry or setting up the WHO backed Global Centre for traditional medicines. The Modi government is making sure that the nation revives the lost glory of the Indian civilisation and doesn’t let the rich heritage of more than 3000 years old knowledge of Ayurveda go down the path of oblivion.
