1.  Identifications studies of Lauha Bhasma by X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence 
Ayu  2012;33(1):143-145.
Procedures for preparation of Lauha Bhasma are described in ancient texts of Ayurveda. These procedures also begin with different source material for iron such as Teekshna Lauha and Kanta Lauha etc. In the present study, we have selected different source materials viz. magnetite iron ore for Kanta Lauha and pure (Armco grade) iron turnings for Teekshna Lauha. The standard procedures of preparation of Lauha Bhasma are carried out in identical conditions for these two raw materials. The final product from the Puta are characterized by using X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to understanding the crystallographic form or forms of iron oxides and their composition at the end of each Puta. The iron content at the end of repeated Putas (18 for Kanta Lauha and 20 for Teekshna Lauha) have shown a decrease in case of Teekshna Lauha since the starting material is pure iron while it showed only marginal decreases in the case of Kanta Lauha because the Fe3O4 of magnetite is undergoing oxidation to Fe2O3. The trace elements remain within the Bhasma in the form of various oxides of Si, Al, Ca, etc.

5.  STUDY OF ILLNESS BEHAVIOUR IN HYSTERICAL PATIENTS 
Indian Journal of Psychiatry  1992;34(1):21-23.
Thirty patients diagnosed as Conversion Disorder and Somatization Disorder on DSM-III were investigated using IBQ and EPI. The patients differed with the controls on all the 7 factors of illness dimensions. They scored higher on neuroticism and low on extroversion.

6.  A STUDY OF ‘SOCIAL NETWORK’ IN SCHIZOPHRENIA* 
Indian Journal of Psychiatry  1989;31(3):221-223.
SUMMARY
An attempt was made to investigate the social network of thirty two first admission cases of Schizophrenia, vis-a-vis thirty one non-schizophrenic psyhiatric patients. The social network of the two groups did not differ significantly. The findings are discussed in relation to the nature of sample and the control group.

7.  PARTICIPANT MODELING IN STUTTERING 
Indian Journal of Psychiatry  1988;30(1):91-93.
SUMMARY
Participant modeling was tried in twenty five stutterers; auditory feedback of modelled speech and guided exposure were also done along with. The patients were able to have a fluent stuttering free speech in most situations.
