Varmam therapy - Awareness program in Star Vijay TV

Typically, when we mention about varmam, people typically link it only to martial arts. But, the true value of the varmam kalai is to provide therapy for various ailments.

To create awareness about the medical aspect of varmam, Dr.N.Shunmugom, Ph.D., Varmam Researcher and Honorary Advisor of Arts Research Institute has featured on a TV show produced by Star Vijay.

On 7th January 2010 (Thursday) at 10.00 PM in the 'Nadanthathu Enna ?' program, Dr.N.Shunmugom gave details about how he was introduced into the field of varmam at the young age by his mother and how the environment in his district (Nagerkoil) was very conducive for learning of varmam. He explained that though varmam can be a part of martial arts, the main aspect of varmam is to provide therapy for various ailments. He showcased how the varmam treatment is based on written evidences available in palm leaf manuscripts and paper manuscripts. He gave hints about how varmam is interlinked in day-to-day activities and cultural behaviour.

NOTE: If possible, the video the program will be available in the website at the later period. Most probably in mid Feb 2010.
