The term 'forensic medicine' has expanded considerably to embrace not only Forensic Pathology but also Clinical Forensic Medicine. In addition, medical practitioners who work within these fields now require knowledge and understanding, not only of medical concepts, but also of both law and forensic science, and how they interact.

Indeed, many subjects that may have been considered part of 'forensic medicine', in its old sense, have now developed their own specialties, such as forensic toxicology, forensic science, forensic deontology and forensic anthropology.

There has been a huge increase in the public awareness of forensic techniques and process, led by an expanding media fascination with such subjects. With this has come an increase in the numbers of those wishing to study these areas as undergraduates or subsequently as postgraduates, who may not come from a medical background.

Since there is a great demand for books in English on Vyavahara Ayurveda, this book is written in accordance with the CCIM the curriculum. An earnest attempt has been made to present the subject proper in detail step by step in the light of present day demands. We hope this work will be useful to the students, teachers and research workers in Ayurveda and readers will find this work addresses their needs.

A project such as this requires the support and expertise of many. We are highly indebted to our colleagues and associates with whom we have collaborated and the family for their support and encouragement.

We happily receive comment and criticism on any aspect of the content.
