KATHMANDU, Sept 23: Renowned Cardiologist Dr. Om Murti Anil unveiled his book, 'Jiwanta Sambandha: Lively Relations,' during a special event in the capital on Friday. The author, along with his mother Rajakumari Devi Singh, wife Manisha Baidar Singh, daughter Anisha, and son Aarav, jointly introduced the book in a media gathering. This book is a heartfelt memoir dedicated to Dr. Anil's late father, Tej Narayan Singh.
In 'Jiwanta Sambandha,' the author shares his experiences and insights on topics such as the rehearsal of death, relationships in life, cultural rituals, struggles, simple joys, illness, and pain in a memoir style. Dr. Anil emphasizes individual responsibilities, thoughts, and duties, offering a positive message throughout the 240-page book, which consists of 53 valuable life lessons.
At the launch event, artist Haribansha Acharya praised the book, stating that its references to life, death, love, duty, science, spirituality, society and profession hold the attention of the readers. He added, “Readers would envision their own parents while reading the book, as it intentionally excludes specific names and images of parents.”
Similarly, artist Madan Krishna Shrestha said, “Reading the book made me feel as if Om Murti Anil had written a book describing the relationship between me and Haribansha Acharya.”
Speaking at the event, Dr Anil emphasized the importance of living in the present moment while highlighting that individuals often overlook the present in the course of chasing future goals. He said, “Life finds meaning in achieving a balance between one's purpose and social relations within the family. Purpose is only a part of life, not life in its entirety, and that many people lose sight of this distinction. I have tried to convey this philosophical message to the audience through this book.”
