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!

Hamstrung by Parkinson’s Disorder family tragedies, I am perched facing my lap top, on my late father’s swivel
chair, pressing the key buttons about ‘my Life’s Penumbra Moments’, ‘Heredity’ and areas of my ‘Influence’ and
‘Concern’. Observes Madhu Tandan, prolific best- seller writer in her Preview of the book, “The author has ‘Lived A
Live of Love, Faith & Humour”.
Encouraged wife Jaya, “You have spent 40 years in a professional career and child-hood in the atrociously
feudalistic Bihar & the pell-mell of Uttar-Pradesh; educated in the royal but somewhat, anachronistic, Rajasthan,
and ‘nobody’s’ Delhi. Qualified expert Mr. Barun Banerjee, a close friend, showed the light. “Nagendra, each and
every one’s story of life is unique and different, hence interesting and engaging fare”.
The professional journey through the Steel, Sugar, Spinning and Polyester, Sponge iron & Power, assorted
industries, etc., was quite a journey. The Tatas, Willard, Monnet, Lohias, Bajaj & Adventz – was an impressive
litany. I was elevated as Director to four Board positions. In today’s parlance, I have read that there are more
10,000 business houses are ‘under the hammer’ as confirmed ‘Non Performing Assets’ by their bankers but their
promoters are enjoying a better ‘life-style’ that ‘pre say’ a Ratan N. Tata!
Our ‘Family Vision’ was documented in this milieu.
