No one can deny that Ramdev has repackaged Ayurveda – the ancient Indian system of medicine – in such a way that for the common man India and Ayurveda have become synonymous. The same is true of Yoga. Things have come to such a pass that any dispassionate analysis of the worth of Ayurveda or Yoga may strip you of the badge of a nationalist. Many proclamations to this effect have been made over the past six-seven years. Our prime minister has contributed immensely to the glorification of Ayurveda and Yoga.
