The Journey of Inchara Ayur Kuteera
Soon after the completion of his degree, Dr. Vasukishayan began his clinical practice. Being service minded and with the pure intention of giving back his contribution towards the betterment of his native and his fellow villagers, he founded his first clinic, ‘Atharva Clinic’ in one of his native villages, Somenahalli, belonging to Chikkaballapura district of Karnataka. Operating a clinic in a remote village has its own challenges, financial and the crowd mentality. Service to his native was the main motto, however, he couldn’t make any basic living out of the clinical practice there, and there was no financial support from his parents as well. So, he had to shift his clinic to Bengaluru. While this clinical practice was going well, he couldn’t settle with this as he always wanted to serve people. He went back to another native village Gudibande, belonging to Chikkaballapura district of Karnataka, to give a second chance. However, the result turned out to be the same. On a positive side, he fulfilled his wish by serving 5 years at his native.
At the end of 1986, he came back to Bengaluru and founded a fully-fledged clinic ‘Malavi Clinic’, named after his daughter. Malavi Clinic operated for about straight 28 years and got recognized by the people of south Bengaluru area as the go-to place for all heath issues.
Graduated from an Allopathic and Ayurvedic combined degree, without getting any proper guidance about Ayurvedic clinical practice, Dr. Vasukishayan had practiced Allopathy for about 15 years, post which he stopped Allopathy completely and started pure classical Ayurvedic practice. He found out his own wonderful combinations to treat various chronic diseases. During this journey, he mastered administration of rasoushadhas for chronic cardiac, renal, respiratory, and various other disorders. He has successfully cured and controlled various tough fighting diseases.
In 2008, along with Malavi Clinic, he parallelly founded ‘Inchara Ayur Kuteera’, which is currently handled by me, Dr. Malavi Shayan. Following his footsteps along with his guidance and support, today, Inchara Ayur Kuteera, is a complete solution for classical Ayurvedic treatment with Panchakarma facility.

The Vision statement of Institution
Inchara Ayur Kuteera aims to encourage the use of classical ayurveda and promote it among the public. We also aim to help budding Ayurvedic Doctors to develop their skills and knowledge in practice.
A Memory that's etched deeply in the journey
The major turn-around of the institution is the transition of Dr. Vasukishayan’s clinical practice from Allopathy to Classical Ayurveda. Dr. Vasukishayan’s son, Anuj Shayan, was suffering repeatedly from fever, respiratory problem, digestion issues, at the age of 7 months and he had become very weak without any food intake. He was treated with all the best possible Allopathic treatment by Dr. Vasukishayan, other Allopathic general practitioners and pediatricians, and all that couldn’t be of any help. Every person had left the result to god’s grace. Finally, Dr. Vasukishayan had to use his Ayurvedic graduate education to re-visit the Ayurvedic granthas and treated his son successfully & saved his life. After this instance, Dr. Vasukishayan studied numerous granthas, came up with his own wonderful medicine combinations, brought up various administration methods and became an eminent rasa-vaidya. This immense knowledge, all of which is carried and enhanced forward by his daughter, Dr. Malavi Shayan.
Being the second generation of an Ayurvedic family, I feel very proud to continue our rich Indian system of medicine. Walking in the footsteps of my beloved late. father, I am fortunate enough to have had his entire knowledge and support. Bearing the torch is not just about feeling proud, I equally have immense responsibility to continue and grow this institution to much greater height than today, parallelly to instill Ayurveda in public, eliminate misconceptions about Ayurveda and to help our younger Vaidyas grow in this line.
Your inspiration to choose Ayurveda
Growing up in a Ayurvedic family, I had come to know that Ayurveda is not just a medical science, but it is a way of life. Ayurveda with its various branches like yoga, pranayama, dhayana, aahara, and much more, helps to lead a healthy and calm life. Hence, Ayurveda means “knowledge of life with well documented medicinal system”. I feel proud to have chosen not just a medical science, but a lifestyle.
Few words about your Guru
My father, Late. Dr. Vasukishayan – an Eminent Classical Ayurvedic herbs-mineral treatment expert, who had rich, original knowledge of Classical Ayurveda & was well versed with its deep-rooted philosophy which helped many people in getting a perfect healthy state. He has served society by curing various ASADHYA ROGAS by administrating rasoushadhis.
To enhance the awareness of Classical Ayurveda not just as a way of treatment for health issues and patients, instead, for the fit and fine younger generation to enhance their physical & mental health, to prevent health issues, as a whole to lead a healthy and happy living.
