Techpro notices a soft protrusion in his tummy and googles it. Epigastric Hernia, says Google. Techpro goes straight to the resident surgeon, Surg, in his village hospital and gets on his nerves. Surg detects a second hernia and Techpro's world falls apart. Wife, thus far unable to rein in Techie fully, takes charge and yes, she enjoys the upper hand the double hernia gives her in Techie's affairs.
Investigations and pre-admission procedures give Techie a chance to see the hospital from a patient's eye and despite all his cynicism, Techie develops a liking for the hospital and its’ staff.
Immobilised by his medical confinement Techpro reminisces and reflects about his family, social and work life. About history and Portuguese connection of his village.
Techpro enters the Operation theatre after bidding good bye to all and with no hope.
Does he survive?
