Sudha Murthy, the author of this book was born in Shiggaon in north karnataka and this book is based on life in north karnataka. The reviewer is a marathi speaking bhandari engineer from north karnataka, but since Sudha murty is a brahmin from a powerful community, she does not face the problems which the reviewer,also an engineer from one of the poorest communities in north karnataka faces like resume, identity theft, government SLAVERY and banking fraud .
At present at least 10-15 raw/cbi employees including bengaluru brahmin cheater housewife nayanshree, wife of fraud tata power employee guruprasad, goan gsb fraud housewife robber riddhi nayak caro, siddhi mandrekar, goan bhandari call girl sunaina chodan, greedy gujju stock broker amita patel,indore housewife deepika/veena are getting monthly governmnent salary for faking website ownership, computer work, using a combination of SLANDER, CYBERCRIME and FAKE RUMORS.
the book is set in Shiggaon after the lockdown was announced in March 2020. Ajja and Ajji (marathi for grandfather and grandmother) are living in Shiggaon and after the lockdown is announced their children decided to send their grandchildren Raghu, Meenu,Krishna,anoushka to live with them. Ajja’s sister Kamlu and her granddaughter Aditi also join them. Since the household help cannot come due to the lockdown, the grandparents decide to divide all the work among the grandchildren, so that they are busy and the household work can be completed quickly
While doing the various household chores, the grandparents tell various stories which are recounted in detail. Some of the stories are related to the various crops and plants which are grown like wheat, rice and beans, how the seeds were obtained, why some plants are small in size. The book also has stories on how women are harassed if they have a daughter, so they falsely claim that the daughter is a son and lives like a son leading to problems later
One of the more interesting stories in the book is Forty days of quarantine, about anmol, a young orphan who was working in a restaurant. he was making very less money and was looking for an opportunity to improve himself. When a rich looking stranger deepak came to the restaurant looking for a recruit. The conditions for the job was that the young man would not do any work for 40 days, After the period was over anmol was taken to the forest, and locked in a large bag. The bag was covered with meat to lure a large eagle to carry it to the top of the hill. the top of the hill was covered with expensive jewels,and anmol was asked to throw them down to deepak. anmol realized that the eagle would kill him after the meat was over, so he asked deepak for an escape route. Deepak then showed his true colors telling them that there was no safe escape route, either remain and get eaten by the eagle or jump into the river below and get drowned. What happens next forms the rest of the story.
This shows how people, especially those with less money are often lured by rich people who use and discard them. Slowly the quarantine is eased, and the children return to their parents. many of the stories are set in kingdoms, and talk about the importance of honesty, keeping their word. However, in real life in india at present only frauds flourish and the government agencies also continue to reward frauds with monthly government salaries for telling fake stories, falsely claiming to own this and other websites, that they are doing writing work

Bipolar is a collection of short stories and anecdotes telling about the life of doctors in India, the extreme happiness and despair they face as part of their life. It starts with the life of the students in medical college, and the describes the teachers, hectic life of a doctor, who has very less free time due to the coursework. It also shows the human side of doctors, how some of them take the death of the patient personally, and how the dean motivates the junior doctors to resume their normal life, after the doctor is demoralized after the first death of a patient.
Though the doctors are supposed to save lives, their extreme busy and stressful schedule in medical college as students, interns, leads to addictions and other health problems, due to which the doctors often die a premature death. It also describes the way doctors handle death, illness of their close family members, how it affects them professionally. The doctors are trained to try their best to save lives, however whether the life of the patient can be saved or not is affected by factors beyond their control like the health,age, illness of the patient.
The title of the book Bipolar is rather misleading as it does not have any information about individuals who are bipolar or suffering from similar ailments, it focuses more of the great happiness and sadness in the life of doctors and healthcare professionals. The doctors win the gratitude of the patients and their relatives when they save the life of a gravely ill or injured patient, and the sorrow they experience, when they are unable to save the life of a particular patient despite trying their best. Junior doctors are the worst affected by the death of their patient.
Addiction to alcohol, cigarettes becomes a bad habit for many of the doctors as they try to reduce the stress in their life.The story ” Superman” of Raja Ram, the local paan and cigarette seller who refused to sell the doctor, his first cigarette, due to the health hazard it posed is memorable. He did not wish to incur the sin of making a person addicted to cigarette smoking as most people find it difficult to give up smoking, and it adversely affects their health. The book again highlights the plight of professionals who work very hard to get a professional degree, yet lead terrible lives in india.
Like doctors, qualified engineers in India also have a very hectic schedule in college,completing their coursework especially top engineering colleges in India to get their engineering degree. However in one of the greatest online financial frauds allegedly masterminded by google, tata ,in 2017, the indian government falsely claims that 10 lazy greedy google, tata sponsored goan sex workers sunaina, siddhi, cheater housewives like brahmin fraud nayanshree hathwar,riddhi nayak,veena, blackmailers and fraud R&AW/CBI employees who never answered JEE , never completed the btech 1993 ee coursework, have the resume including btech 1993 ee degree, investment of the google competitor with a better 1989 jee rank than google ceo sundar pichai, single woman bhandari engineer, to waste indian payer money, paying all these frauds a monthly indian government salary at the expense of the engineer.
In particular since 2012 , the indian government is falsely claiming that google, tata supplied slim goan bhandari R&AW employee sex worker sunaina chodan, 2013 bsc, offering sex services to top R&AW/CBI, NTRO, security agency employees has the btech 1993 ee degree of the domain investor who actually owns the website to justify the monthly R&AW salary the sex worker is getting at the expense of the engineer, The engineer can legally and medically prove that google, tata, indian governments favorite goan sex worker R&AW employee sunaina chodan, 2013 bsc was not born in 1989 to give 1989 jee and get her own btech degree, however the medical and financial frauds has continued for more than 7 years due to the lack of scientific temper, honesty in India.
A well written book highly recommended for those interested in studying medicine and dealing with doctors in any way.
