What are the attributes of a god? Is it a cross, or a lotus flower? Is it a crown of thorns or one of gold? And what if you’re not lucky enough to worship a great god? Because there are places in the world where there are lesser gods, too. And for those who are stuck there, lesser gods demand worship too. In reality, these may not even be gods. But in truth, they still need to be worshipped.
Follow the happenings in a mystical place where the timeless elements of fate, grace, power, love and many others play their parts in the story of human beings. Discover the closed doors of belief, that men of science may never enter, and see for yourself, which is the lesser story, and which the greater. Are the human beings that perform these acts, the real tale, or are they merely providing a context for the unfolding of something quite different?
Written in a unique style the tale tries to differentiate between reality and truth. It splits into two halves that run together but rarely meet. A doctor enters higher studies to meet an array of characters, each with their own intentions and motivations. It explores their mundane realities and their murkier truths. It is about a flow that happens regardless of how ordinary the story being told is. It is a demonstration that even though stories may be dull because the characters don’t have interesting lives, life itself is not dull. And neither does its intensity diminish, even when the characters who live it, keep suffering the consequences of being ordinary.
Each chapter splits into two, a day and a night. The day is usually what is easily observed as the same by all. The night is what transpires seen by some, and unseen by others. And at many times it tries to show the blurred lines between good and evil as doctors struggle against all odds to complete the curriculum for a degree in which they control nothing. The social complications that arise from inherently human desires that cannot always be fulfilled, ensure that perhaps what meets the eye, doesn’t even exist.
From diseases of individuals to diseases of society, the book dissects science, miracles and luck, not to culminate into a conclusion, but rather, to dissipate into the diversity of experience. It is meant to be an uplifting, entertaining and enlightening read without being overly complicated or making a profoundly serious impression.
