Goa: Induction programme of the first batch of 100 BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) students of the recently inaugurated satellite institute of All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) in Goa was organised.

Addressing the function, a special guest on the occasion Shripad Yesso Naik, MoS for Tourism and Ports, Shipping and Waterways said, “The state of Goa and the farmers of the state have contributed to setting up of All India Institute of Ayurveda. Professor (Dr) Tanuja Manoj Nesari and her team has worked hard to make the dream of setting up a satellite institute of AIIA in Goa come true.”

The function also witnessed the presence of Harilal B Menon, Vice Chancellor, Goa University as the Chief Guest of the event. Menon in his address described the potential of Ayurveda in his own words and said that the students should conduct Goa-centric research, “Research is something that has been lacking in India. It is time that we adopt the formula of ‘re’ plus ‘search’ for research. Being in Goa you should do Goa-centric research. If you survey the length and breadth of Goa, you would find people suffering from many diseases and the reasons behind the same have not been found yet. One of the kidney diseases in North Goa is much talked about and the cause behind the same has not been identified. We should look forward to solving these issues,” he added.

Discussing some facts about Ayurveda to garner the interest of the students, Dr Manoj Nesari, Advisor, Ministry of Ayush said, “Ayurveda is one of the most advanced sciences of its times and had already conceptualised concepts such as biotechnology. He added that the sky is the limit for the Ayurvedic practitioners over here.”

“With time Ayurveda and its concepts have spread to as many as 40 countries including Japan, the Netherlands, the US, Brazil and has been curing patients from diseases,” he added.

Talking about the journey of All India Institute of Ayurveda in New Delhi, Professor (Dr) Tanuja Manoj Nesari said that it is the energetic teamwork of the best faculties, management, and leadership amalgamated with the cooperation of the government through the ministry of Ayush, that has helped the institution to grow within a short period of five years. Within five years All India Institute Ayurveda has treated as many as 15 lakh patients, she informed.”

“All India Institute of Goa will carve its niche and this moment is like scripting history as this is the first time that AIIA will offer BAMS course to students. I congratulate all students for being a part of this moment and the faculty members for being the pioneers of this change,” she added.

Professor (Dr)Tanuja Nesari also acknowledged the support of the Goa state government, as well Ministry of Ayush in establishing the satellite institute of AIIA in Goa.

In her address Prof (Dr) Sujata Kadam, Dean of AIIA satellite institute in Goa, praised the initiatives of AIIA and said that the institute will turn into a green campus by not allowing the use of plastics inside the institute.

Kadam said, “AIIA is an autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Ayush. What makes it special is that organisation is a tertiary care institute that works with modern tools and techniques.”

“AIIA is an autonomous organisation under MoA. There are around 750 institutions of Ayurveda in India, but what makes AIIA stand apart, is that it is a tertiary care institute that is equipped with modern tools and techniques,” Kadam added.
