Sarang, the driving force behind the move, said on the occasion that a team of 97 doctors prepared these textbooks in mission mode to begin the course in Hindi.

Chouhan said these textbooks have technical terms written in Hindi the way they are pronounced in English, such as ‘kidney’ is just spelled as kidney.
