While, the health ministry’s tableau showcasing India’s “success over polio” has been rejected by the defence ministry, ministry of Ayush has started giving final touches to its tableau that will roll on the Republic Day 2015.
“We have got an information from the defence ministry about the final approval of the tableau and are looking forward to the final day,” said a senior official.
According to officials, the tableau by Ayush will showcase all traditional forms of medicine including Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy. “The tableau will be decorated with original plants,” the official further said.
But this is for the second time in row that the Union health ministry’s tableau themed on “polio” has failed to impress the defense ministry. The defence ministry had reportedly rejected the health ministry’s tableau on the grounds that it lacked “creative content”.[Source]
