Abstract/Summary As is the case in other South Asian nations, medicine is intimately interwoven with religiosity and ethnic identities in India (Tovey and Broom, 2007). Common therapeutic modalities like Ayurveda and Unani are deeply embedded in local cultural sensibilities and religious ideologies, producing a complex interplay of medicine, culture and identity (Alavi, 2005 ).
