Dr. Subha, a fellow ‘orkut-tan ‘ happened to ask me about the Ayurveda companies listed on our site. The conversation may be useful to a lot more people. Here it is:
Hi Vikas, thanks for your reply. I browsed both the web sites. I feel you should get the medicine list of some more standard companies also, like AVP, Coibatore and Kotakkal Arya Vaidya Sala, SNA Oushadhasala, Vaidyaratnam Oushadhashala, etc. These are some companies whose medicines are really excellent and have their own standards and patent preparations also.
Thanks for the genuine concern about Ayurveda companies. You will be happy to note that we have invited over 200 such firms to join hands with us including the firms mentioned by you! But as you can understand, we can put up only those companies which have responded to us! In fact there is no charges for listing and sales of any GMP certified company’s products on our site; still the response is slow. I personally attribute it to the lack of ‘technology awareness’ in this industry! Anyway do re-send regular invitations to the firms and some of them respond late. Once they do, you will surely find them on our site!
For the commercial aspects of our business, we need Ayurveda companies to respond and for the non-commercial and seva aspects of our business we need the support of Ayurveda doctors and the public to stand by us!
