About the author

Vaidya Vishnu Mahadev Gogte

Vaidya Vishnu Mahadev Gogte (1910-1987). The author had the good fortune to be born as a son of Vaidya Mahadev Hari Gogte, in a long family tradition of Ayurveda. He had academic experience, as a teacher in Ayurveda, of over five decades. He lived in areas where tribal medicine abounds and enriched himself by the field experience of extensive tracks in the hills, with experts on medicinal plants. Hence he had a cumulative experience and health-wisdom of half-a-century, which he shared with the world, through this textbook. Besides, he held important public positions in Ayurveda Seva Sangh, Maharashtra State Vaidya Mandal, Sarvajanik Vachanalaya (Public Library), Spring Lecture Series, Maharashtra Science Congress, Municipality, Homeguard, Civil Defence etc. His inspiring presence at the Conference organized on "Selected Medicinal Plants" by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's SPARC and CHEMEXCIL, led to very fruitful and practical dialogue. This later led to major publication, which has put India on the global map of useful medicinal plants. Vaidya Gogte also gave lectures on Ayurveda and Dravyagunavignyan in Europe, which were very erudite and appreciated. He was closely associated with many of his contemporary eminent vaidyas, ethnobotanists, pharmacologists, pharmacists, forest officers, Adivasi leaders, doctors etc. He, with an unmatched modesty, gave credit to many of his colleagues for the Textbook of Ayurvedic Pharmacology.
