Hand Of God Board book – 2015
'Hand of God: A Biography of Dr K M Cherian' brings to the readers an honest account of the celebrated cardiac surgeon. Dr Cherian has achieved many ‘firsts’ in his long and illustrious career. He performed the first successful bypass surgery in India in 1975 and is credited with doing the first successful coronary artery bypass graft surgery in India. In 1995, he became the first to do a first heart transplant in a private hospital after the legalisation of brain death in India. From a childhood spent in the plantations of Kerala, the trauma and exhalation of the first heart surgery he ever saw as a medical student ("It was the first heart operation I had seen in my life, the first time I donated blood and also the first death I saw on the table"), his precious gun collection (the good doctor loves to hunt too), and why the memory of Ahalya continues to haunt him to this day... the book, written by Priya M Menon, chronicles the ups and downs, both personal and professional in Dr Cherian's life.
