I was searching commentaries on various classical literature of Ayurveda. I personally found that going thorough the recent commentaries are the best and the easiest way to learn the subject. There are lots of books available both by Indian authors and Western authors, but I don't find them useful enough, especially when you have the original text available with you. I also didn't find any good book either by Western or an Indian that shows their experience. So, after doing some googling on Internet, I found following list that looks very good to me - S.No Name of the Text Book Author/Commentator Year of Publication 1. Sushrutarthsandipan Bhasya Harana Chandra Chakravarthy 1908 2. Charakopaskar Yogindranath Sen (Calcutta) 1920 3. Charakapradipika Jyotishchandra Saraswati (Calcutta) 20th Century 4. Nighantu Ratnakar Duttaram Chaube (Mathura) -do- 5. Commentary on Charaka Samhita, Chikitsa Kalika & Bhaisajya Ratnavali Jaideo Vidyalankar 1970 6. Commentary on Charaka Sushru

Ever wondered how old is a page on web? Want to know age of a webpage? When a page was first published? Surely Google Cache is not an answer because it shows the latest date and time, and NOT the date and time when it was first published. There are many tools, plug-ins and add-ons but none worked up to my satisfaction. So here is a quick solution - 1. Search the keyword or the page URL in Google.com 2. In the results, on the left panel, you will find "Any Time". Click any option there, say "past year" 3. Now Google will start showing date of publish below each search result. Enjoy.
