Millions of innocent people, throng the Gigantic Multi/Super Specialty Hospitals every day each moment, some with cash, some with Govt. cards & yet some EWS, but all .... one and all .... having a common hope, brimming in their little hearts that they .... or their dear one ... their precious one .... would be saved, treated and cured and would return home with a smile. But it is not to be .... Little can they imagine that the simple doctor with the doctor's bag of yesteryears is no more that simple ... he is now a tycoon.... the simple small nursing home of yesteryears is now a giant corporate industry.... They or their dear ones can little imagine the encounter that awaits them.... with heavy dozes of medicines, multiple series of tests.... gigantic machines like CT Scan or other such......, used quite lightly... Through this attempt, author have tried to highlight the state of darkness, we are in, about the futility of this whole process in some kind of diseases; our lack of awareness about the alternative remedies and alternative systems like Unani, Ayurvaida, Homoepathy and various other systems, where there is an ancient concept of cure. Above all, a deep seated lack of respect in the minds of the Medical Professionals, for the alternative remedies.
Dialysis 2121 is an emotional tale about a girl and his mother. It really pains to see your loved one suffer from a medical condition and you can do nothing to help him out. A similar thing happens to the girl’s mother who has been her companion ever since her birth. The girl has never visualized her life without her mother. Bringing herself to the fact that her mother’s condition is deteriorating was really difficult for her.
The moment you start reading the book, you will find yourself in an alien place. You won’t understand where the story is heading to. Confusion will follow every page. But then a few chapters later, the story gains momentum. It grows somewhat interesting and engaging.
The first person narrative adds a very personal touch to this book. The language is very casual which will make you feel like you have been talking to the narrator. The start of the books appears to be off the main track while the rest of it seems too detailed. The continuity is missing in this novel. A few chapters are really short and read like a diary entry. It was disappointing. There are many instances where you will wonder what is happening.
The emotional aspect of this novel is praiseworthy. You will be left teary-eyed.
My overall rating for Dialysis 2121 is 2/5 stars.
You can buy your copies of this book on Amazon.
