Author Name: Dr. Bhavan Mahajan, Poonam Sood | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

We often say that for the patient, the doctor who cares for and cures him, is God incarnate.

Indeed, this is true for the doctors who agonize over the agonies of the patients and their relatives, spend sleepless, tireless days and nights in their service. In fact, the doctor and the patient become soulmates in this process.

But very often, the doctors feel that they can only treat and the actual healer is the Supreme Power.

These twenty-one real life stories capture the anguish that a caring physician feels over the loss of a patient, despite every effort taken. Sometimes these tragedies are quite avoidable, brought on by ignorance and irrational beliefs. There also profiles of brave men and women who face death with equanimity.

Like the silver ray that lightens up the cloud of despair, there is also the ecstasy when a patient is brought back to life from the very jaws of death. These moments are the ones that make up for all the heartbreaks that the doctor suffers over the loss of patients…

Dr. Bhavan Mahajan, Poonam Sood

Dr. Bhavan Mahajan is born on 22nd Aug 1942. He is a reputed name in surgery in and around Aurangabad (Maharashtra). After post graduation he was in U.K. for three years (1972-75). Later having come back he joined a Mission Hospital at Shivgaon Distt Ahmednagar (Maharashtra). It was while working here that he decided to start his own nursing home in Paithan – his hometown (1977). He chose to work in a small town where not many facilities were available. His anesthetist would visit once a week. At other times surgery was done under spinal or local anesthesia. His assistant was his wife Chhaya, who is Ph.D in English and a name in Marathi Literature. But because of the unforeseen difficulties, he left his home town and shifted to Aurangabad. His aim of serving people with minimum fees continued in Aurangabad. He has conducted several health education camps in villages and at his Kalyani Nursing Home. He has been President of local IMA and Secretary of Surgical Society. He is a veracious reader and has deep interest in classical Indian music. Recently one of the stories in this book “Spotless” was converted in one act play and presented on ‘Dasara day’ by local branch of IMA Aurangabad. It was highly enjoyed and deeply appreciated for its social message.

Poonam Sood is born on 16th March 1965 in a Punjabi family in Kanpur. Her mother was a voracious reader and father had a lust for books. This paved a path for the innate poetic sensitivity she was born with. As a student in a convent, Poonam’s letters and essays were always read aloud and applauded in class.

Her initial poems were published in ‘The Pioneer’ a leading English newspaper and then her writing career picked up. She has more than hundred and fifty articles published and broadcasted, rewarded and appreciated, in Hindi and English.

A well known name in the field of literature, she is the founder chairperson of Gulzar Sahitya Samiti, which promotes literature and organizes cultural events since past nineteen years, in Faizabad…where Poonam lives with her husband.
