Dr. Ajay is a consultants Anesthetist, Intensivist and pain specialist. His textbook of anesthesia is most saleable textbook book for undergraduates in India, South East Asia and Africa. He is a rational, logical and analytical thinker. It had always been his dream to write a book which can honestly unfurl the other side of curtain.
About The Book:
“From Where I See,” is a must read book for all age groups. Ajay’s dream to write a book which can unfurl the other side of curtain has been achieved through this book. This book is an eye-opener for all the current problems in the world especially in ‘India’. Through this book, Ajay has explained very nicely; how humans came into the world, their job role in this world, how religion came into existence, how religion was made for peace and how now peace is destroyed through religion, how government dupes public and how public blames government even for the mistakes that an individual does. Ajay not only talk about problem but he also describes the solution for the problem. The story starts with police questioning Ajay on Shruti’s death. Ajay, Shruti and Kaniyah were childhood friends. Since childhood, Ajay was rational and logical thinker and also a philosopher. They all get separated due to various reasons. After a long time Shruti and Ajay met each other and that’s when he finds her struggling with her relationship with Aslam. Every time they would meet, they would discuss about society, government, evolution of human and so on. Through Shruti’s life he talks how inter-religion marriage creates problem and how to solve it. Through various family gatherings and seminars he talks about government, religions and women empowerment and history of the world. The chapter where he discussed about the evolution of religion actually shocked. Like others, I too thought religion is a God Gift but what I come to know through this book is, religions were created by human and how for their political gains they manipulated the religion and how the society is facing its causes now. Through Shruti’s affair with Rashid, he explains about extra-marital affairs, why it happens and its causes. This book shows how interpersonal, intrapersonal, inter-social and inter-religion conflicts should be balanced, how individuals should not blame government rather take a step towards the utopian society, how one should not judge a person if he is right or wrong rather the actions of a person should be judged. It also showcases how history has been manipulated.
The discussions were indeed catching- My point of view on certain things has changed, but the plot of the story is not so good. I mean Shruti’s murder case had to be a thriller one according to the author but it wasn’t. After the author has discussed all the point in various chapters, all of a sudden the criminal is caught. There is a need of editor as there are spelling mistakes and dialogues don’t have proper quotation marks and this leads to confusion.
Overall it is a nice book. I agree to the blurb that it’s not only a book; it’s a path to a revolution, it’s a journey towards a Utopian world. If you are open minded, have the courage to accept truth and have desire to change the world; then be a part of the change. Let’s take our first step to build a road to this Utopian dream.
