Product description

Dr. Venugopal Menon's "Amma Called me Unni" is an authentic and kaleidoscopic portrayal of eight decades of life, spanning from the British Colonial India in Kerala to the life of a successful immigrant in America. His childhood stories recount the now obsolete joint matrilineal family system, role of grandparents, precious traditions, colorful festivals, festivities and a culture of the past that can bring in nostalgic reminiscence to readers. After becoming a doctor, he served the Indian Army during the Chinese invasion and then the Kerala State Health Service and later he left the country in search of a better future. The book poignantly relates to his intense dilemma of forsaking his motherland and dragging his future generations to an alien culture. And the story continues with his establishment in America, earning all the laurels in higher education, serving as the President of a nationally reputable clinic, and being invited by the prestigious Royal Society of Medicine in London. This is the amazing chronicle of an early Indian immigrant to America, a physician who earned a name for himself as well as created a base for his future countrymen in the land of opportunities. It is a must read for all who have an interest in history, culture, migrants and the medical profession.
