RESEARCH ARCHIVES

In the early years post its inception, BMRF conducted extensive studies aimed at enhancing the learning, psychosocial well-being, mental health, and nutrition levels of the institutionalised children in Bala Mandir. A strong emphasis was placed on the efficacy of Ayurvedic tonics and medicines.

Smt. S. Manjubhashini, Founding Secretary of Bala Mandir, was a great believer in Ayurveda, and natural home remedies. Children in the institution were taught how to pick and eat/chew special leaves and berries for various small ailments. The Arogya Ashram Samithi (AAS), an organisation dedicated to Ayurveda, funded BMRF’s early work in this area.

The year 2000 saw a paradigm shift in focus, away from formal scientific, and medical research, to the increasingly relevant social sciences. Since 2000, BMRF’s work has focused on parenting, and the psychosocial relationship between the adult and child, for the betterment of all children. Today, BMRF works with various Government, and non-Government Organisations, on training and research initiatives, aimed at spreading positive parenting practices across diverse cultural and socio-economic environments in India.
