A senior doctor from the department of endocrinology, Osmania General Hospital, Hyderabad, was also part of the research group.
According to the study, the Holy Gita offers to physicians timeless solutions to modern challenges. It offers physician-friendly taxonomy including attributes of a good physician, excellent knowledge, equanimity, emotional equipoise shaping the behaviour of physicians and surgeons.

With the Blessings of Srila Prabhupada and Vaishnavs I met Srimaan Bhikhudan Gadhvi, Such A Humble Soul, Amazing Personality …. No Words to Describe and Express my feelings for Srimaan Bhikhudan Gadhvi Bhai….
Gujarat Nu Gaurav….
Srimaan Bhikhudan Govindbhai Gadhvi (born 1948) is an Indian folk singer and songwriter, known as a proponent of Dayro, a narrative singing tradition of Gujarat. He is a recipient of the Gujarat Gaurav Award of the Government of Gujarat and the Sangeet Natak Academy Award. The Government of India awarded him the fourth highest civilian honour of the Padma Shri, in 2016, for his contributions to folk music.
Om Rane, 13, stays in Ghatkopar, a suburb in Mumbai. Every year in December he would see his parents and family friends enthusiastically participating in book marathon. He too wanted to go along with them, but who would allow him to go? And who would take him seriously?
This year, in 2016, he expressed his desire to distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books, because he thought he has grown sufficiently old. He started going house to house, shop to shop, in his area, and after trying for a long time, managed to distribute three copies of Gita.
But he wanted to do more. He entered a place that he thought was a hotel. There he saw people sitting and chatting, eating groundnuts, holding a glass of liquid in their hands. Little did he know that it was a liquor shop. With Gita in his hand, Om approached a drunkard.
Om: Uncle, why are you crying?
Drunkard: Why are you asking this question?
Om: Please have a look at this book. You are drinking this wine but it can give you only temporary happiness, whereas this book can give you permanent happiness. Wine will destroy your life, but this book will give you new life.
Charmed by this sweet and bold talk, the drunkard agreed to take the Gita. And he promised Om that he will give up drinking wine and try to become a good person.
Om is happy that he could please Srila Prabhupada by this effort.
