The FRLHT (Foundation for Rehabilitation of Local Health Tradition) located in Bengaluru has brought a modern, scientific basis to ancient Vedic knowledge. They are pioneers in the field of Ayurveda and Integrated Medicine with a 100 bed hospital, I Aim. Also Wellness Centre, with a dedicated wing for natural childbirth attended by gynecologists, a well attended outpatient department and a great facility for Panchakarma treatment.
A significant body of knowledge is being created with over 1000 species of herbs, shrubs, trees and flowering plants growing in their garden.

I hope to continue writing songs for them. Lyrics below.


Wedelia trilobata’s for cuts and wounds they say
That pitabhringi brings relief, it keeps the pain at bay
The Indian Bow String Hemp or Naga Katale
Is handy when a snake gets mean if you are out to play
Garcinia indica, Kokam, Clusiaceae
Gimme an Ayurvedic tonic every single day

Sesbania grandiflora, Fabaceae
Agastya shines a light at night so you can clearly see
Popeye the sailor loved it and you know it made him swell
Portulaca olerasia it makes you well
You can call it spinach, soppu, parupu keerai
Ayurveda’s never gonna lead you astray




Nelumbo nucifera, kamalam, thavarai,
A lotus leaf to douse the fever, cholera get away
Pellargonium graveohlens, Panneer pathre
Rose Geranium won’t let mosquitoes have their way
Ocimum canum, nayi tulsi, what’s in a name
It’ll kill the cough I tell you, Ayurveda’s the game

Mentha piperita more than freshening your mouth
Diarrohea, Ulcers, Pudina drives them south
Manjari Madhu Malini if your teeth they ache
It’s said spilanthes acmella is such a piece of cake
Nitya kalyani, periwinkle will make you sleep
These ayurvedic medicines now they’re the one’s you keep
