October, Mumbai :In the diverse domain of professions, being a doctor or any professional in the medical industry is an arduous task, as they are thought to be an intermediary between God and man. As quoted by William Osler, “A good physician treats the disease; a great physician treats the patient who has the disease“. This book by communication consultants, Arnab Mukherjee and SushmitaSarkar follows the journey of an extraordinary man who braved hurdles to provide free and affordable health care for people in rural India. This book, Hope Dawns in the East, is published and released by Notion Press.
This book talks about poverty and the inhuman medical practices prevailing in our country, as India is home to some of the poorest people in the world, despite being one of the fastest growing economies. We unfortunately rank at the bottom on the world happiness index and the results can be directly correlated to the burden of poverty. The main reason why India is battling with poverty is due to overpopulation, illiteracy, epidemics and lack of affordable healthcare. This book documents the journey of a person from humble beginnings and how he created a successful model to establish the first super-speciality tertiary care hospital in Northeast India.
Growing up in Assam, Borah was unfortunately a witness to his mother’s intense suffering due to the lack of affordable healthcare. Following this incident, he adopted the motto, ‘No one should die from lack of healthcare’, which motivated him to pass matriculation with flying colours and thereby get admission in Guwahati Medical College with a scholarship from Assam government. After completing his studies and training, he set up GNRC (Guwahati Neurological Research Centre) in 1984. This story tells us about the painstaking journey taken by Dr. Borah to establish the research centre and how he strived to provide universal access to healthcare. This successful model and his pursuit for ‘Health for All, Smiles for All’ are wonderfully recorded in this book.
