Resilience, Survival, Perseverance. A Physician's Inspirational Autobiography

Author Name: Hasan A Khan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

This book provides an autobiographical description of the journey of my life as a physician, a traveler, and a family man. Through a non-linear narrative style, it charts the obstacles I encountered and overcame, the life lessons that I learned, and the material and spiritual wisdom that I collected along the way.

I begin the book not with my childhood, but with my first day in medical college. This decision hints at the impetus for writing the book; I began it in 2019 when my grandson started his first day in medical college. I felt that my life had come a full circle, and began writing my memoir.

The book also traverses an important event in my life, the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, its aftermath and the personal trauma I faced on its account. I was forced to make a road trip from Kuwait to India only for the sake of SURVIVAL.

Throughout my journey, I have lived through RESILIENCE when faced with odds. I believed in the narrative that success follows you with PERSEVERANCE. My seventy years have given me ample experience to know the difference between the beautiful and ugly, affluence and poverty, good and bad, right and wrong.

In addition, this work covers my personal thoughts on “Art of living”. Our leisure trips and soothing spiritual travels are included. I have not shied away from expressing my views on my own religion of “birth” and others and I learnt to respect all religions and beliefs. 

I have touched on the human and economic devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Amazingly, how the world in a rare show of cooperation got together to develop vaccines in record time. 

I have throughout the pages expressed my motto: “Live and let Live”.

Hasan A Khan

I was born in the historic city of Hyderabad, to an Army officer in the late forties. I was determined and so succeeded in becoming a Physician, an Internist and a Clinical Cardiologist. Life took me around many cities and countries to complete fifty years of active service as a practitioner, mostly in large hospital set-ups. I had a tough section in my life where I had to travel by car ten thousand kilometers from Kuwait to India passing through Iraq, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan. This and the many other things that taught me “How to live while you live” prompted me to write the story of my life. Pre-Covid19 I started penning down my manuscript. The lockdowns of Covid19 helped me in completing it. As and when it passed through my mind I have written on my inspirational philosophy to the readers for a better being. Positive thinking has been the backbone to my “Art of Living”. I am a product of a generational foresight. My grandfather with no formal education had a vision to educate his children. I am the generation which continued his foresight and thus have two well settled educated children. My wife is a retired school teacher and an amateur budding artist. She spends most of her time in art work and I spend my spare time in writing.
