My Army Days: A Pictorial Journey Memoir of a Psychiatrist

Author Name: Major ( Dr ) Tapas Kumar Aich | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

It all started casually by the end of March 2020, when The Government of India declared total lockdown in the entire country because of impending Covid-19 virus pandemic. My hospital job was also got suspended. I thought of penning few lines on my experiences gained, mostly during my stay in army, as a measure of some creative work!
I poured out memoirs one after the other. Friend’s appreciation and encouragement prompted me to write more. Few of my elders, friends, colleagues, and well-wishers gave me the idea to compile all these memoirs in a book form. 

This book is a collection of multiple brief memoirs, mostly, of my army days, which I posted in social media during the last one-and-half years. I have decided to keep few of the comments, notes and appreciations posted by my social media friends, in preparing the final draft of the present book. 
I hope and pray that my dear readers will find these memoirs and the format of presentation an interesting one. Positive comments from my readers will give me the impetus to write few more such memoirs of my life the coming days.
