Q:

Which veda deals with medicine?

A) Atharva Veda B) Yajur Veda
C) Sama Veda D) Rig Veda
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Atharva Veda

Explanation:

The Vedas are considered the earliest literary record of Indo-Aryan civilization. It is the most sacred scriptures of India.

 

There are four Vedas in Hinduism. They are:

1. The Rig Veda,

2. Sama Veda,

3. Yajur Veda and

4. Atharva Veda.


Most ailments, both physical and mental, were attributed to malevolent spirits and cures consisted of rituals, charms, mantras, medicines and surgical intervention.

The hymns in the Atharva Veda, the last of the four Vedas, and largely composed after the Aryans were well settled in the sub-continent, indicate that indigenous non-Aryan healing practices had influenced the Vedic Aryan healers.

C) 1976 D) 1986
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1966

Explanation:

The Green Revolution in India refers to a period of time when agriculture in India changed to an industrial system due to the adoption of modern methods and technology such as high yielding variety (HYV) seeds, tractors, pump sets, etc. Green revolution was started by Dr.M.S. Swaminathan.

 

The new agricultural strategy was adopted in India during the Third Plan, i.e., during 1960s.

Similarly, in the kharif season in 1966, India adopted High Yielding Varieties Programme (HYVP) for the first time.
