About

This research blog is designed as a platform for researchers from all disciplines to connect and network on all issues related to Siddha medicine and aligned traditions. At the same time, this platform gives researchers a space where they can present their ongoing as well as concluded research work on Siddha.  This provides a unique opportunity to publicize this South Indian tradition in its diverse and multiple forms. While this platform is open to contributions from all disciplines, its main focus is on social sciences and humanities, especially on research in cultural anthropology, Indology, history, religious studies, sociology, philology and philosophy. This platform will hence function as a map of what is going on with regard to research on this Indian medicine and its history, alchemical traditions and philosophy.
