Malappuram (TH): The year-long Navati (90th birthday) celebrations of Kottakkal Arya Vaidyasala managing trustee and chief physician P.K. Warrier came to a close on Saturday with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy inaugurating the valedictory.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said the proposed Ayurveda university would materialise by next year. ‘‘The government will do everything possible for it,” he said while felicitating Dr. Warrier for taking Arya Vaidyasala to heights of glory.
Dr. Warrier, however, said the recognition he got originally belonged to Arya Vaidyasala. ‘‘It is a recognition for Ayurveda as well,” he said.
The Chief Minister released a documentary on Dr. Warrier titled ‘‘Kaalathinte Kaiyyoppu” produced by Venu Thamarassery. P. Sreeramakrishnan, MLA, released a book ‘‘Dr. P.K. Warrier — The compassionate healer, his patients’ reminiscence,” an anthology of articles by Dr. Warrier’s patients.
