Sir,

Ganpat et al. [1] have reported their finding of the increase in Delta-Alfa electroencephalogram wave coherence by practice of "Integrated Yoga Module." Such coherence is reported to correlate with functional efficiency. Such a beneficial finding deserves extensive further investigation by replication and clinical application.

But, the description of the "Integrated yoga module" in the article is incomplete either in the text or in the corresponding [Table 1]. For example: (i) What exactly is done in prayer, and what is the content of the prayer? (ii) What are the Asanas practiced? (iii) What is done in "Friendship meet?" (iv) What is done in Karma-Yoga? (iv) What is the "Special Yoga Technique" practiced? (vi) What does "Ayurveda-Tea" consists of?

The reason for these questions is based on the premise that a scientific communication is meant to facilitate further research by replication and application by other interested professionals. It would be most useful if the authors can furnish the details.
