“Just as a strong and beautiful relationship grows out of compatibility between individuals, so is good health gained when we eat foods that are compatible with our system. According to Ayurveda, ayu or life is an orchestra of body, senses, mind and soul; balance, moderation and compatibility are the conductors of this heavenly orchestra that steer life away from sickness and suffering, thus leading to an existence full of happiness and contentment.

Sukham Ayu, researched at KARE, is a collection of recipes that brings Ayurvedic insights into the underlying relationship between humans and the food they consume. It consists of daily, simple, vegetarian dishes that all Indian homes are familiar with. "Most of the recipes are for daily cooking; home-style recipes are the first step towards bringing Ayurveda and healthy, flavoursome cooking into one’s home,” says Pratibha Jain, who has co-authored the book, along with Jigyasa Giri.“ – The Indian Express
