I was an adult and approaching midlife when a bear unexpectedly arrived in my rather dismal life. I had never had a bear before. He was called Plush, he called me Persey, and mysteriously things began to change. But he, and the other bears who came to join us, had to live inside (because people wouldn't understand), and I realised that I had always lived on the inside too. We set off on an adventure to look for a place where we could live outside as much as inside, a place that might be home.This is a true story. All the bears and other characters still live with me, and the events described all happened in one way or another. Some of the place names have been changed a little because they both are, and are not, the real places.
This is a true biography of a village lad who grew up to be a doctor and joined the Indian Medical Corps in 1942 and served in the Burma sector during the Second World War. Later in 1947, he gave up a lucrative career in the army to serve his people in a remote village that lacked any medical facility in those times. He served the poor people of the area for sixty years, charging a very nominal fee for his services. This book describes his experiences during the Second World War and later as a rural doctor providing primary care to about one hundred adjoining villages. He was the Dr. Albert Schweitzer of India.
