This anthology is a compendium of scholarly articles from some renowned doctors about medical ailments, personal and learning experiences, life lessons from M.B.B.S students, caregivers’ experiences in dealing with the maladies their dear ones have been afflicted with, patients talking about their own battles with destiny and stories and poems of hope, renewal and revival by a number of prolific literary writers and poets.

On our part, let us believe that the doctor has chosen this profession for the main purpose of alleviating the sufferings of mankind. Nevertheless, he too is a human being with normal desires and aims to lead a comfortable life like all his school mates in other professions. On the other hand, a patient never comes to a doctor out of choice.; he never comes in to chat and say, "how are you". He comes there with great expectations.  These are most often achieved, no doubting that. Patients too have doctors as part of the family. If we can empathize with them for their work style, bedtime hours, and strange feeding habits; why not with the doctors struggling with our health. treat them too like our own children. And make them never regret their choice of this profession.

This might not be a substitute to medical consultation, but certainly sends out a message of hope and empathy that though we are all fighting our own battles, help is always at hand and certainly no one ever fights alone.
