Overview: Jivaka: The Child Who Healed

About the Book: Jivaka: The child who healed Jivakas fifteen-year-old mother, Vatsayani, seduces the scholar sage Richika to father her child. The child becomes a disciple of Kashyapa, who is a renowned healer of children. To prove his merit, the five-year old Jivaka is forced by veterans to enter the River Ganges. Jivaka emerges from the water as a great healer himself. The story connects seamlessly to a modern-day Jivaka who is training to be a paediatrician. The novel attempts to bring to life childcare in ancient India-developed around the Kashyapa Samhita, the only text of Ayurvedic paediatric medicine in existence today.

  1.  The Story of an Ancient Healer 3 April, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Taking us on a journey across time and space, Malvika Kapur brings to vivid life the story of an early Indian paediatrician. Using imagery which echoes the richness of our mythology, on the one hand, and deftly weaving in ancient lore about diseases which still exist, she enchants the reader with every page.
    Balancing these dreamy mists from a far past, the author creates a second space where time present also breathes in palpable hues.
    A must for all students of the ancient and still valid school of Ayurveda, this book can also easily hold the attention of the casual reader thanks to its restfulness.
    Charming illustrations complement the serene flow of the chapters. From all points of view, this is the book for you!
