Haryana is all set to have India’s first AYUSH University in Kurukshetra and is gearing up for the major development process. After focusing on Gurgaon regarding its Electricity supply, water supply, infrastructure project and road projects; there is shift of focus from Gurgaon to Kurukshetra.

The state cabinet approved the decision to set up India’s first AYUSH University in Kurukshetra. Actually, it is not a University but, State government had decided to make Shri Krishna Government Ayurvedic College into a university. “Cabinet has approved a proposal in this regard and the Shri Krishna AYUSH University would have courses of all the systems of AYUSH. The institute is expected to be functional soon with various facilities,” said Health Minister Anil Vij to Tribune news service.

There are currently 10 Ayurvedic colleges and a Homeopathic college working in the state out of 10, two are government colleges which were affiliated with Pandit Bhagwat Dayal Sharma University of Health Sciences at Rohtak which will now be affiliated with Shri Krishna AYUSH University after it becomes functional.  The University will allow the students from all the states to take admissions.

An ordinance will soon pass for the university after which it would become functional. Shri Krishna Government Hospital was established in 1975 and has a capacity to take 50 students in BAMS and 50 students in D.Pharma. Both BAMS and D. Pharma are Ayurvedic courses.

    Nowadays more people are switching to Ayurveda and Naturopathy so this was really required.

    Ayurveda has been a primitive practice in India. There is no other treatment which can beat Ayurvedic treatments as it has almost nil side effects and the cure is from the roots and not superficial or aesthetic results

More Than 1000 Gene Variants Linked to Educational Attainment Identified

However, the total influence of the genetic variants is small, explaining about four per cent of the variation in educational attainment across individuals, the scientists said

An international team of scientists has identified nearly 1,300 genetic variants associated with how much education someone may complete.

Educational attainment is primarily influenced by environmental and social factors, but it is also influenced by genes associated with, for example, cognitive function such as memory and personality traits such as conscientiousness.

“We found that many of the genes associated with educational attainment are influential in virtually all stages of brain development and in neural communication within the brain,” said Peter Visscher, Professor at the University of Queensland in Australia.

Genetic variants on the X chromosome explain virtually identical amounts of variation in men and women.

This finding, published in the journal Nature Genetics, lends support to the hypothesis that there are no genetically based sex differences in the amount of variation in educational attainment.

However, the total influence of the genetic variants is small, explaining about four per cent of the variation in educational attainment across individuals, the scientists said.

“Even variants with the largest effects predict, on average, only about three more weeks of schooling in those who have those variants compared to those who don’t,” said Daniel Benjamin, Associate Professor at University of Southern California (USC)- Dornsife.

“Yet, when we analyze the combined effects of many genetic variants, taken together they can predict the length of a person’s formal education as well as demographic factors,” he added.

While the new number is far more than the 74 variants initially discovered in a smaller study two years ago, there are many other genetic variants associated with educational attainment that have not yet been identified, the researchers said.

For the study, the team analysed a combined 71 datasets comprising over 1.1 million participants with European ancestry from 15 different countries and who were least 30 years old. (IANS)
