Promising all support from the state government for the smooth conduct of the Global Ayurveda Festival, Smt K K Shylaja Teacher said that it is important that Ayurveda also needs to be put on an esteemed pedestal, even as the modern systems of medicine see growth. Ayurveda is capable of adding to the immunity of the body and keeping ailments at bay. With good levels of immunity, even diseases like Corona would stay off.

It needs to be noted that the negative impacts of lifestyle changes have paved the way for ailments to affect the human body. By practising lifestyle norms as suggested by Ayurveda, diseases could be kept away, the Minister added. She also added that the government is fast giving shape to an Ayurveda research centre in the state.
