Mohd Tariq The Science and Art of Kushtasazi (Taklees)
The need of serious treatment is this subject is now felt more widely. Kushtasazi today is considered as an essential element of liberal education at all levels. A well educated person is expected to be familiar with various areas of calcination. Kushta (calcined product) is the dosage form concerned with rejuvenation, longitivity, virility, vitality. So far no attempt has been made to study this type of dosage form in a scientific manner. So, the present book has been designed keeping in view the fact that students require greater depth and breadth of knowledge to tackle complex nature of calcination technology... So, it is not surprising that it has emerged as a major section in the field of Unani pharmacy (Ilmul Saidla). This is because of a lack of communication among traditional healers, physicians and scientists and the unavailability of the literature in English. Works on kushtajat are now read by a much wider audience and now is no longer confined to historicians.
