The vision, foresight and guidance of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, proxied strongly by the mentions of the Ayush sector and the Ministry of Ayush in ‘Mann Ki Baat’ have coincided with the rapid growth & development of the Ayush sector in India, and its increased demand across the globe. The two are hypothesized to have coincided because of a potential direct correlation between the impact and credibility of the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s highlights of Ayush through ‘Mann Ki Baat’, which have translated into a metamorphosis of the sector as a multiplier effect of the number of people & institutions following the commentary of ‘Mann Ki Baat’, as well as the credibility & coverage of ‘Mann Ki Baat’. The growth seen in Ayush industry (manufacturing & services), research & development, public health initiatives & demand, global traction, investment interest, and regulatory frameworks strongly support this correlation, especially when seen considering the specific initiatives, events, and developments of the Ayush sector which have been highlighted in a particular timeline by the Hon’ble PM, show a parallel upsurge in that specific (or related) sub-sector of Ayush. The objective of the current study is to Analyze & establish the impact of Ayush related highlights & mentions of the Hon’ble Prime Minister on ‘Mann Ki Baat’, on the Ayush sector.
