Dr. Dhanya Renuka Nair

She completed her Ayurvedic studies from the prestigious institutes, Vaidyaratnam P.S Varier Ayurveda College, Kottakkal, Kerala (BAMS) and Government Ayurveda College, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala (MD-Dravyaguna Vigyan).

Preface

Dravyaguna Vigyan is a lengthy and difficult subject when it comes to Ayurvedic post graduate entrance and other competitive exam preparations. It's a vast subject that spans over many contexts- Vedic literature, Samhita, Nighantu, Kayachikitsa etc. Learning Dravyaguna Vigyan is a continuous process which requires a lot of perseverance. Only hard work can yield you high marks in the subject. More than understanding, it's a subject very difficult to remember and a subject with a huge scope of MCQs. Hundreds of MCQs can be made from each drug in the syllabus of the subject and this makes the subject a big hurdle in front of all the competitive exam aspirants.

This book is a humble attempt to make the subject easier for all competitiye exam aspirants. The book is divided into two parts. Part-1 contains 1000 MCQs and part-2 is the Appendix. During the last days of exam preparation, solving MCQs is an important part of studying. So this book comes with 1001 MCQs and covers every part of Dravyaguna Vigyan syllabus. Additionally, in this portion, we have added explanation to many MCQs because it is quite natural that seeing a particular question, the student feels the need to revise the portion once again. For example, seeing a question on the karma of Vijaya variety of Haritaki, the student may wish to have a ready reckoner from which he/she can find about other varieties of Haritaki and their karma. So this book comes handy in your last minute exam preparations where you don't have to search multiple texts to find the relevant information, instead it is given along with the answer. We have added maximum number of questions from various recent PO entrance examinations, which will give the aspirant an idea about the nature of questions in the competitive exams. The appendix is a concise study material of Dravyaguna Vigyan according to new syllabus by CClM. Some portions are given in bold letters to give more emphasis as these portions are more important from competitive exam point of view. During last minute preparations, revising these portions will help students score more marks. The study matter in the appendix part is mostly presented in the form of charts which makes it easy to compare, understand and remember things easily.

I, Dr. Anil Kumar Shukla would like to dedicate this book to my beloved mother Late Smt. Devmati Shukla and thanks form my core of heart to my respected father Shri Ram Agya Shukla, wife Mrs. Priya Shukla and my daughters Arpita & Vedika and whole family, friends and well-wishers for their support throughout the work.

I, Dr. DhanyaRenuka Nair, express my heartfelt gratitude to my beloved mother, Mrs. Renuka. I, without whom the work wouldn't have completed on time, who took care of my little baby during the time I was busy with the book preparation. I am also thankful to my husband Dr. Renjith R, my father Mr. Chandrashekharan Pillai, my baby Ms. Nirupama Nair, my in laws, my best friend Ms. Sreeja Mohandas and all my family members who supported me throughout the work and compromised my absence in many situations due to my busy schedule.

We are thankful to the Management, Principal, colleagues in Dravyaguna Vigyan De- partment, and other departments and students of Mansarovar Ayurved Medical College, Bhopal, M.P. and S.N.K.D Nallasopara Ayurved Medical College, Nallasopara, Maharashtra.

We are thankful to Late Prof C.S. Kundle sir, Ex HoD-Dept of Dravyaguna & Ex. Dean R A PodarAyu Medical College, Mumbai for his divine blessing & Prof (Dr.) K R Kohli, Director of AYUSH, Govt. of Maharashtra for his continuous guidance and encouragement to do best and taking time from his busy schedule to write a foreword for our book.

We are also thankful to Prof (Dr) 0 N Shukla, RA PodarAyu Medical College, Mumbai and Prof (Dr) S N Ojha, Director-Post graduate studies, YashwantAyureda College Post Graduate teaching & Research center, Kodoli, Kolhapur, Maharashtra for his time to time encouragement & guidance.

We are very much thankful to Prof V K Joshi, Prof K N Dwivedi & Prof Anil Kumar Singh of Dept of Dravyaguna, Faculty of Ayurveda, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi and Prof Rabi Narayan Aacharya, Head-Dept of Dravyaguna, Institute of Postgraduate Teaching and Research in Ayurveda, Jamnagar Ayurveda University, Jamnagar, Gujarat for their expert opinion and guidance in completing this book.
