Home to Market: Response,Resurgence and Transformation of Ayurveda from 1980's to 1920
The article explores the early transformation of Ayurveda into a) a system of medicine, which has two components, one, a knowledge base and two, institutionally recognized professionals b) an industry, producing traditional medicine and related products for the market, in which one, the production system and two, the market, are important. Using the snippets of information from archival documents and secondary sources, we argue that the institutionalization of manufacturing and training were survival strategies, in the course of which a certain modernity emerged, through negotiations with modern medicine.
