We all are living in such a world where the pollution and global warming are threats. Every year in India, at the time of festival seasons of Dussehra and Deewali, the smog and pollution are so much that millions of people suffer from different health issues. Also, the farmers of Punjab and Hariyana burn the Parali of their crops due to less awareness, and it becomes a challenge in the national capital, Delhi, to breathe. The government invests resources and the vehicles are allowed as per their even odd numbers. The authors team, including government officials, educationists, academicians, and students, along with IT experts, performed significant experiments on the ancient Indian Vedic science of Yajna and Mantra, and they found surprising results in the reduction of pollution on respective days. The chapter is an effort to present that scientific study conducted in 2018 and 2019 in random days after doing Yajna, and it was found that the pollution level was drastically decreased.

Status of Healthcare in Indian Context

According to Indian Constitution, Each state government is responsible for improving its Healthcare facilities, raising the level of standard living and nutrition in their own state. In India, Healthcare system under public sector is free for those people who are under poverty line. Healthcare system under private sector consists of 81% doctors, 58% hospitals and 29% of beds in country. According to a survey, Private sector becomes the primary source of healthcare for rural and urban areas. In Medication, it is surveyed that in 2010, India consumes most number of antibiotic per head. But now in 2018, most of the antibiotics are substandard and fake and is not approved. Although there are 1.4 million doctors in India, yet India is not able to reach its Millennium Development Goals (eight international development goals for year 2015) related to health. Initiatives such as The Twelfth Plan, Public-private partnership, PM-JAY and many more are taken for improving access of healthcare in India.(Brondino, N., et al, 2013), (Gupta, M.,et al.,2019a) and (Chaturvedi D.K.,et al.,2014b)

Arvind Kasthuri experimented in his research that studies the whole scenario of Indian healthcare system from ancient to modern one, the challenges that need to be overcome are represented in the form of 5 A’s, that need to be solve in order to improve access and quality of healthcare system of India. First A represents “Awareness”, this stresses upon the level of awareness of health among people. Second A represents “Access”, this stresses upon the physical reach of healthcare facilities (allowed up to 5 km). Third A represents “Absence”, this term stresses upon less number of personnel availability for Healthcare services. Fourth A represents “Affordability” or “Accommodation”, this stresses upon the cost of healthcare system for people who are not able to afford it. Fifth A represents “Accountability” or “Acceptability”, It defines rules and regulations to justify one party and to take responsibility for its activities.
