Over the years, I must have accumulated tons of information and inspiring tales of renowned personalities from around the world. Some taught me the importance of research, some perseverance, some- the use of tact, whereas some also taught me to explore the real purpose in life and prioritise accordingly.
All these great writers, sports(wo)men, doctors, film-makers, revolutionaries, leaders, Gurus may have applied their respective strengths in action and elevated all the way up in their field of expertise. However, after stumbling upon this gem of a book, I realised that everything I had ever been looking for had come to find me!
The Bapu That I Have Known (Mi Pahilela Bapu) is an anthology of anecdotes about my mentor, Dr. Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi (MD Medicine), fondly known as Bapu by his close peers. The peculiarity of these anecdotes is that every article in this anthology unfurls at least one unique facet of Bapu. In no way do these articles portray a hyperbolic personality of Him but state the humble reality, which each of these people has witnessed.
