Ayurveda and Thulasi genome sequencing?

Modern life style and why genetics matters now more than ever.

Are our old traditions making a complete cycle as modern medicine adapts the same principles?

Come join us to discuss these and more. Here is the twist. The discussions will be in Kannada, Tamil and Hindi, with eminent scientists taking the effort to converse in their mother tongues for a richer and meaningful discussion. 

Choose to drop in for a particular language segment or better stay with us for lunch and enjoy the whole day.
