Dr N S Chauhan is also known as father of medicinal plants in Himachal. Luckily I have been his student during my days at Dr YS Parmar UHF Nauni, Solan. Its the most authentic and practical book. Not like copy paste done by most of d authors these days. He is really a legend in d field of medicinal palnts which has been sufficiently reflected in this book...
