Reviewes :

“Dr. Arumugams’s scalpel is indeed sharp, but not as sharp as his wit, and unlike the unforgiving finality of a surgical “slice”, his slice of humour brings chuckles always, guffaws sometimes, and rarely death threats from the   Subject of his jokes. But then…… he has the scalpel for his defence!”

Reading Abel Arumugam’s personal  journey in ‘The Scalpel Writes’, one is reminded of Dorothy Springs’s quotation “ Life is like a camera -  just focus on what’s important , capture the good times, develop from negatives and if things don’t work out just take another shot”.

Abel is jovial, carefree and fun loving and his focus in life is his family, numerous close friends and his surgical career. The ‘snap shots’ capture the good times in all these and his narratives are portrayed in fun, immense love and with enthusiasm. No mention of any negatives to develop from and he does not say what he did if things did not work out – I suppose, as usual, he just ordered another shot!!
