Nalam Penuthalil Mangayar Pangu / நலம் பேணுதலில் மங்கையர் பங்கு

Author Name: NILAKANTA SIVA | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

Nalam Penuthalil Mangayar Pangu’ reflects the editor’s realisation of the extent to which women were involved in his five-year battle with the crawling crab and the consequent rapid recovery and rehabilitation after surgery for bladder cancer. It is an elucidation of women’s immeasurable contribution to curative care not only in hospitals as medical professionals but also at home as a wife, daughter, sister and even the in-laws.

The vital role that women play in caring for the indisposed at home after being discharged from hospital deserves recognition. Increasing longevity and prolonged chronic disease impose a great demand for tender care for women and children. Though such responsibilities do enhance the assistance provided to individuals, they impact the caregivers’ own health, their ability to take up educational, employment and social opportunities, and at times, it disrupts normal family life too. Authors, including doctors and others who cared for the sick as well as those who were aiding their near and dear ones, have written to show their appreciation of and their gratitude to these countless selfless women. In order to increase the reach of these sentiments, the book, originally in English, is now being released in Tamil too.

NILAKANTA SIVA / திரு. நீலகண்ட சிவா

Mr Nilakanta Siva’s initial education was in Delhi, and the final years in school were in Mumbai. After graduating with Physics and Mathematics, he went to IIT, Chennai, for post-graduate studies. He started working with the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre’s Nuclear Physics Division.  His command of the English language was responsible for him being nominated to lead the public awareness programs and to collate media relations in highlighting the benefits of atomic energy in addition to his assigned research. Mr Nilakanta Siva, who espoused nuclear physics, as he loves to call his profession as a nuclear physicist, comes across as a very optimistic and successful cancer conqueror with no inhibitions in ascribing his bladder cancer to the misdemeanours of salad days.

Both he and his wife, Rajalakshmi Siva, have dedicated themselves to the task of spreading awareness of life after cancer and reiterating that cancer entertains no mercy petitions. They have two dozen publications to their credit. Their expressions are profound enough to make the readers think logically. The style of their writing is commendable.  He insists that the conversion of “you cancer” into “you can, sir” aided by women was what outsmarted the crawling crab.
