    Let us run across the meadows, to the top of the mountain.
    For I promise,
    The view will calm you, soothe you
    Make you feel at peace.
    A gentle breeze will drift you away,
    from sorrows of the shallow land.
    If you get tired in between,

    Only a little rough.
    But we will get there,
    All in good time.”

    The book is described in seven chapters with Prologue explaining the contents of each Chapter and the Epilogue, a brief biography of Durga and her once in a lifetime dream visits abroad. The first chapter is an attribute to the development of the medical science from ancient Vedic scriptures, followed by the description of Unani and Ayurvedic schools of medicine that prevailed in Kashmir, which then got swept over by the sudden boom of allopathic treatment through synthetic drugs, because the system was pronounced to be more efficient for instant relief, besides being systematic, scientific and logical backed further by surgical interventions whenever necessary. The first chapter titles as “Philanthropy of the Physicians then and the Doctrine of the Doctors now” is a very interesting chapter backed by some very interesting case studies. The physicians of the yore are portrayed as true philanthropists as they would simply aim at alleviating the suffering of the sick and curing them back to normalcy with least interest in any material gains in return, while as the extent and quality of the services expected from most of the Doctors in private practice now is a direct function of the amount of fee received. The next two chapters describe the last one year of Durga’s struggle against her perpetual indispositions and the doctor’s apathy or inability to investigate the root cause of the steadily deterioration in her health, the observations of which recorded meticulously and narrated in the book, expose the inimical practices prevailing in the system which inflicts unbearable physical and emotional stresses on the patient who eventually give in as ‘Fatal Face Down.’ To know more, grab a copy today!

    God is the Author chronicles the trials and tribulations that a boy orphaned at seven years of age went through and yet scaled the uppermost heights of the academic world. This biography was possible because Dr B M Bhatia and his wife Sita succeeded in giving their children the best of values, education and opportunities despite the challenges and vicissitudes that they faced.

    ‘He always believed that Goddess Laxmi (of wealth), is jealous of Goddess Saraswati (of knowledge) so wherever Saraswati is worshipped, Laxmi is sure to follow.”

    The biography written by Neelmani (Dolly) Bhatia is tribute to his faith in himself, his unwavering will to tread every uneven path that life laid out for him, his tenacity of purpose and, above all, his complete faith in the One above.

    Neelmani attained her Master’s degree in English Literature from Delhi University as an alumnus of Miranda House and Hindu College. She also has to her credit an assortment of post-graduate diplomas in Journalism, Creative Writing, Advertising, Personnel Management and Administrative Management.

    Over the last three decades, the author has essayed different roles – lecturer in diverse streams, novelist, storywriter and poet.

    She has authored four novels, Across Seven Seas, Hang Them All, Melodious Love and Shadows at Dusk, apart from numerous short stories and poems in both English and Hindi.

    Neelmani has also presented research papers at national and international forums, including Literature: Social Idiom; Ethics in Children’s Literature; Role of Books in Children’s Upbringing; Environment – Writing on the Wall; Biography – Choices and Challenges; India or Hindustan, Spokes in the Wheels of British Reign (1857); Ideal Syllabus for Journalism Courses; The Role of Drama to Promote Literacy, Reaching Books Where There are None. She is currently working on her next novel.

    If her father was an acclaimed scholar, her mother was a prolific diarist, assiduously expressing her love, meticulously penning anecdotes and eloquently articulating her angst in her dairies against social evils. Hence it was not only the upbringing but also the genes and inherited passion for words that put this book together.

    Apart from a scholarship already instituted in Dr Bhatia’s name, proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards financing the education of children from the weaker sections.
