About The Book

A young widow, Mohini, from the Punjab of undivided India, in a bid to escape sexual molestation by her own brothers-in-law, flees barefoot on a journey that delivers her into the hands of her childhood friend, Anjana, in faraway Abbottabad. Under the kind and loving care of Anjana and her husband, Kartar, she goes on to become a doctor and eventually a powerful IAS officer. Running parallel is the story of the young couple, Dr Amit Biswas and his wife Anita. Amit’s ambition to be a great healer for the poor is gradually derailed by his greed, spurred by the rich and successful in his fraternity.

This book shocks you with details of numerous medical malpractices perpetrated by the same noble people we turn to when in illness, even before we turn to God. From innocent small kickbacks to clandestine drug trials, from small and big surgeries to highly specialised procedures, medicines to implants, ethics are thrown to the winds at the altar of Lucre. The book ends with a chilling and totally unpredictable climax.
