Full Moons Many More

By Subramoniam Rangaswami


(A surgeon’s exploration of the meaning of healing)


Magic word for a stunning phenomenon!

Biology’s prodigious endowment to life!

Nature’s enduring gift to all living beings!

How do we heal our wounds most of the time?

And, why do we fail sometimes?

In his book Full moons many more Subramoniam Rangaswami explores the many facets of healing – from its catastrophic breakdown to the most unexpected and miraculous expression – in several real-life stories narrated with style, humor and almost mystical fervor.

Sure to keep the reader spellbound.

How does the ‘uncertain art’ of Medicine wrestle with the staggering complexities of the three and a half billion year-old phenomenon? We learn from uncle Sankaran in the story (who has seen a thousand full moons!) that in the final analysis, it is our efforts to bring ‘cosmic wisdom’ in perfect alignment with ‘local fitness’ that help complete our journey of healing.”
