The Scandals, Candles and Sandals

By Dr. Lokendra Singh

Written over a period of time, in between his busy schedule, The Scandals, Candles and Sandals is an eclectic collection of short write-ups by Dr. Lokendra Singh, a practicing neurosurgeon by profession. His creative impulses have tackled multifarious subjects and will take the readers across different geographies, epochs, and subjects and give them a serious, oftentimes humorous, insight into different facets of the contemporary human condition. The author’s observations are wide ranging — from mythology to the technological advance of industrialised societies, the art of gifting to the analysis of tears, cocktails to noise pollution, twice born to twice dead, human bonsai to where the jungle is – which will surely keep the reader enthralled and entertained. The write-ups are precise, and hit the target like a guided missile. The language is simple and colloquial. Many write-ups end with verses or small poems which enhance the flavour of the subject thus making it an enjoyable reading.
