Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine, practiced in Indian sub continent. We are working to calibrate classical parameters of good manufacturing practices of Ayurvedic bhasma on parameters and language of contemporary science. Bhasma in accordance of classical expectation are Swarna bhasma, Makshika bhasma, Abhrak bhasma, Tamra bhasma and Louha bhasma. X-ray diffraction, TEM and particle size analysis revealed that these bhasma are in nanometer dimension. These bhasma may be considered as nanomedicine and are free from toxicity in therapeutic doses.

AIM: Many weapons are available in the arsenal of a dental professional to combat dental caries, which is almost ubiquitously present. From a public health perspective, most of these weapons are far from being an ideal drug. Hence, there is a demand for better and effective antibacterial agents. This factor stimulated the process of the present study. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of ethanol extract of Terminalia chebula on Streptococcus mutans. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Dried ripe fruits of Terminalia chebula were procured and powdered.

One of the most fascinating objects in the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) is an early 16th century prayer nut. This spherical wooden object measures 4 cm in diameter and consists of two hemispheres connected with a small hinge so that it can be opened. The interior of the nut holds wood carvings with scenes from the life of Christ. These miniature reliefs show an incredible degree of finish with carving details well beyond the millimetre scale.
