Set in 2007, 10CC deals with the biggest taboo in our medical fraternity, which is addiction among doctors. It is a known phenomenon in Western countries. There are special hotlines to report substance abuse suspicion and rehabilitation centres for addict doctors. This novel touches on almost every medical malpractice in Indian society, like a cut practice from pharma and laboratories.
The novel starts with the protagonist joining a small town, ICCU, without any experience. He is a chain smoker and leaves the hospital to smoke, abandoning the patients. The protagonist in this novel is shown to be good just in theory and lacks practical aspects. The hospital is in an old residential building, the dirtiest place ever spawned, infested with mice and spiders. The staff is untrained, rude and without any morale.
This novel is a dark comedy. There aren’t a lot of dark comedies in India, so readers are in for a change.
Another thing that separates this novel from others is the protagonist is not named. In this way, every reader can associate with him.
If this novel becomes hit, the Indian government will be forced to make many reforms in the medical sector. It will scare a lot of powerful people and bring about positive changes in Indian society.
