    When Breath Becomes Air – Paul Kalanithi

    - Finalist - 2017 Pulitzer Prize, Biography or Autobiography
    - 51 weeks on top position of NY Bestsellers

    Growing up reading a lot of books covering a lot of genres in the otherwise boring Mohave desert town of Kingman, Arizona, Paul, second of three sons to South Indian inter-religion married immigrants, wanted to become a writer one day. Drugs were for his friends, for him it was prose and poetry. Not surprisingly, he took up two MA degrees in literature and philosophy to hone his writing skills.

    “What makes human life meaningful?”

    The constant inner nagging of this question during his adolescence and the realization that the answer lies in the workings of the brain, he takes a complete detour and ends up taking neuroscience at Stanford. Finally, after 10 years of grueling training sessions of neurology surgery at Stanford rising up to the ranks of chief resident, happily into a marriage with college sweetheart American, just as he is about to rise up the ladders of success, at the age of 34, he is diagnosed with Stage IV terminal lung cancer.

    “What makes human life meaningful enough to go on living?

    At 36, he left the world. Before that he completed this memoir which was then published posthumously. After reading it, the first thing that crossed my mind is, this should never have been written. But then, if it not had been, how would we have appreciated a life such as that of Paul's filled with enthusiasm, humility and achievements. It is not like the book has sentimentalized cancer or romanticized death. It is a profoundly personal narrative. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in living. Don't blame me if you end up crying towards the end. I sure did.

    My Own Country: A Doctor’s Story – Abraham Verghese

    A 1994 memoir written by Verghese, born to a Mar Thoma Christian household in Kerala, did his schooling in Ethiopia where his parents were teachers, took up medicine but had to leave the country amidst political tension, reached USA, worked as an orderly, completed his PhD from Madras Christian College, did not go into money-making operation-based medicinal studies instead opted the field of infectious diseases and went back to USA as an FMG.

    Late 80’s. Settled among mountains and creeks, Johnson City, Tennessee was a rural township, far from the luxuries and anxieties of modern urban American life. Working with the local population, Verghese & wife became close to the community. For Verghese, Johnson city was heaven, the midst of the American Bible-belt, no wonder it was where he ‘finally felt peace, living in my own country’ until… the first case of AIDS walks into the hospital he works in. From there, we meet a lot of his patients, openly gay homosexual couples, close-knit closeted homosexuals struggling with wife & children in suffocating face-saving marriages, the ones who got the ‘from hell’ HIV virus through anal intercourse to the ones who got it while donating blood for a social cause, the ones who don’t have the guts to admit they are sick to the ones who cannot find courage to tell their dear ones that they are sick… a plethora of patients in a society where even the nurses and doctors have the wrong notions about the disease and its spread. Relations become hostile, social activities get scanned under radars of racism, guilt, color & emotions. Verghese finds himself often the only & most often than not, the last person by the bedside of someone dying from the disease. Amist all this, Verghese struggles with questions about immortality, death and living.

    Really loved the book. Loved the language. Eloquent with the emotions. Considering its 30+ plus since published, it still has the narrative pace and vocabulary to keep you hooked. Impressed. Recommended.

    Finished Barack obamas Dreams from my father. A partial auto biographical primarily related to being a black in America and obamas family background.
    It gives insights into the mind and what made barack obama the politician. But i couldn't relate to the main theme of black identity as it is specific to America and did feel some of the thoughts to be abstract and buddhijeevi level.
    I felt maybe dalits in india are closest to the blacks in America.
    Overall an ok read for people in india
