‘Reflections of a Surgeon’ is an interesting narration of a diffident boy, from a small town becoming a leading surgeon in India. He was an average student transformed to become an inspiring teacher and in spite of his speech defect, adored as a speaker.
Part A. J. Cronin, part Gray’s Anatomy and, interestingly, part philosophy, part Indian value education and part spiritualism—It is a humble account of a life that was well lived and explains in simple language, the advantage of remaining focussed, despite the ‘noise’ that surrounds our lives today.
This book is not meant to be a chronicle of Dr. Shrikhande’s professional success but is about the various many people he has interacted with, their stories and the impact they have left on him.
The reader will surely gain many an insight into how life can be well lived and how true success should actually be measured.
His Marathi book ‘…Aani Don Haath’ published by Popular Prakashan, was a best-seller for 12 weeks and an audio-book version of the same was broadcast on All India Radio to much acclaim. Many doctors and patients found in it inspiration to change their lifestyles.
