This book reflects the Editor’s realization of the extent to which women were involved in his five-year battle with the crawling crab and the consequent rapid recovery and rehabilitation after surgery for bladder cancer. It is an elucidation of women’s immeasurable contribution to curative care not only in the hospital as medical professionals but also at home as wife, daughter, sister and even the in-laws. The vital role that women play in caring for the indisposed at home after being discharged from hospital deserves recognition. Increasing longevity and prolonged chronic disease imposes a great demand for tender care on women and children. Though such responsibilities do enhance the assistance provided to individuals, they impact caregivers own health, their ability to take up educational, employment and social opportunities and, at times, disrupt normal family life too.
Authors, including doctors and others who cared for the sick as well as those who were aiding their near and dear ones, have written to show their appreciation of and gratitude to these countless selfless women.
Mr NILAKANTA SIVA was born in Mumbai, in 1944. His initial education was in Delhi where his father was then with the Ministry of Defence. His final years in school were in Mumbai. He graduated with Physics and Mathematics and then went to IIT, Chennai for post-graduate studies. He started working with the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre’s Nuclear Physics Division. With his immaculate command of the English language, he preferred to lead public awareness programs and media relations to highlight the benefits of atomic energy as an additional charge in addition to his research in neutron scattering. Mr Nilakanta Siva, who espoused the new clear physics, as he loves to call his profession as a nuclear physicist, comes across as a very optimistic and successful cancer conqueror with no inhibitions in ascribing his bladder cancer to his smoking habits of the past. Both he and his wife have dedicated themselves to the task of spreading awareness of life after cancer with over two dozen publications to their credit.
