ABOUT THIS BOOK
Doctors are often compared to gods. We rush to these men and women in
moments of crisis and pain.
But how much does anyone know about their personal lives? What about the
trials they undergo and the challenges they face in their personal lives and in
the course of their professional careers?
There are seven stories in the book; all of which truthfully capture the clinical
drama, excitement, conflicts, love and passion in the lives of doctors.
These stories talk about the life of a doctor in the little settlement of Purnea, a
physician’s lonely battle against the bureaucracy, a look at what goes on in large
medical institutions, a collaboration between Ayurveda and Allopathy, and other
aspects of doctors’ lives.
The stories have been translated from the works of some of the best-known Hindi
