A book by Dr Tripti Sharan
I had a busy day today with emergency cases pouring in.
I just finished reading book...." Chronicles Of A Gynaecologist " written by a brilliant doctor....an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist ....Dr Tripti Sharan ......famous doctor of Capital. I got this book through Amazon.
I've never met Dr Tripti Sharan but heard a lot about her intelligence....her passion for poetry....for literature .....through her friends of Medical College Gwalior ...Dr Rupa Agarwal Gopal , Dr Ashish Gopal , Dr Sanjay Monika Gupta , Dr Ritu Jain , Dr Hardik Jain.........settled at Mathura .
Dr Tripti Sharan's book is a journey through a mind of young doctor. This book is an eye opener to shake the soul and consciousness of society regarding girl child. The very existence of human race is because they reproduce generation after generations.
Each story vividly reveals mostly the apathy , inhuman and negative attitude of the family & of the male partners ...towards females .
The female foeticide , the villainous nasty and barbarous act of rape even with toy playing minors , the sadistic attitude and so many others narration in the short stories.......all so obnoxious.....but so well narrated by Dr Tripti .
Their journey of life...as daughter , wife , mother and Nani-Dadi....is something commendable and yet they being treated as second rate citizen....sometimes even with brutality .....should certainly make the society rise from the slumberous attitude. Dr Tripti has successfully conveyed this message to society......thru her book.
The appreciation of the messages....conveyed brilliantly thru various cases by Dr Tripti Sharan in her book.....should make the society understand that the jubilant female is the treasure and back bone of human race !!!!!
Congratulations, Dr Tripti Sharan mam !!! Medical Fraternity is proud of your literary skills !!!
This book is A Must Read for every doctor ....for every patient !!!!
Friends....As medico it's our responsibility to tell our every patient....our relatives....our friends...to go through this book.

Finished reading it in one go thanks to the narrative which is easy and fluid, and the stories which range from dark to hopeful and in between; each one as gripping as the other.
The strange bit about reading stories of others' struggles is that it gives one the strength to deal with his/her own; this book is one of those rare ones which have the power to leave you braver and bolder. Hence, although, the context is Indian; the stories have a universal/global appeal to them.
Also, a recommended read and good reference material for those interested in the study of gender inequality/bias in developing societies.
A big thumbs-up to this book!
This odd reality and ultra conservative non-scientific mentality has led to millions of women having to suffer myriad forms of pain and exploitation in going through the processes of marriage, sex and childbirth. As a gynaecologist, Tripti found herself in a unique position of being a confidant as well as privy to confidential information about the prevalent myths and cultural malpractices leading to rampant exploitation and ill treatment of women in our society. She has told this extremely poignant and relevant story in a very fluid and accessible style to educate society and hopefully bring about social change for the better. Some stories will shock the sensibilities of many who are brought up with access to progressive modern thought and notions of gender equality.
I do hope that this book finds wide readership and becomes an instrument of widespread social change in favour of improving the position of women in our indifferent society. It should find place in all areas where the narrative brings about the necessity and scope of immediate improvement with regard to the lot of our women's health and rights and empowering them to be in control of their own destiny. I also hope that the parochial men who occupy positions in power today in our government and politics hang their head in abject shame after reading this powerful book.
I plan to gift this book to my daughter in order to acquaint her with the ground realities of how our daughters/wives/sisters/mothers are treated in this country. I'm sure she will be part of the fight for women's social dignity and to end the disconnect between the images of Shakti/ Durga/ Kali revered by all and the ugly truth of female foeticide/ infanticide which is a blot on our social conscience. Maybe her generation will be able to enjoy the basic physical freedoms and choices that should be the benchmark for female sexual health and equality the world over.
I commend the author in bringing this socially important story to light. It is truly said that the conscience and effort of one person can be the catalyst for change. Tripti Sharan makes a powerful statement for ending this hypocrisy and for new beginnings.
As much as I could relate to the scenarios being a young doctor myself, it's something which the non medical citizens of our country need to read and know.
Please do read, for it may open your mind to things you never thought about in your busy busy life. It could easily bring about a turmoil of emotions and I literally had to pause at certain sentences and ponder for a while before I could continue with my reading.
I also loved the style of writing, which is of course unique to every writer!
