WARANGAL: A retired professor of Kakatiya University, Gajjala Rameshwaram, has set up a unique naturopathy library filled with the rarest of books which he has collected over years of research. He opened the library’s doors to whoever is interested in those books.

Over the past 30 years, he has collected a treasure of rare books and journals on naturopathy and yoga systems.  Some of his manuscripts and rare books were digitised by the National Institute of Indian Medical Heritage. Several people researching in this field can have access to these books free of cost.

 

“There are about 1,500 titles from across the country. I also subscribe to several journals on Naturopathy. Some of the journals in my possession are not in publication anymore. For those who come from far off places, the library also has a room with all amenities so they can stay overnight and access the library. My sole aim is to spread knowledge and I have worked hard to collect these books. If someone is interested I am more than happy to help them out,” Mr Rameshwaram said.
