New issue of the Indian Journal of Psychiatry

The last  issue of the Indian Journal of Psychiatry is available online. Included in this issue is a 6-pages article by Haque S. Nizamie and Nishant Goyal (from the Central Institute of Psychiatry, Kanke, Ranchi, India) entitled History of psychiatry in India. The abstract reads:

History is a screen through which the past lightens the present and the present brightens the future. Psychiatry by virtue of its ability to deal with human thoughts and emotions and provide a pathway for healthy minds provides an important platform towards being a mentally sound human being and largely the society. This review takes a sneak peek into the foundations of modern psychiatry in India. The description is largely based on the time frame, which provides a better understanding of the factual information in each period starting from the Vedic era and culminating in the post independence period.
