The Braying Donkey: Reflections on a Life by Dr. Timir Banerjee

The Braying Donkey: Reflections on a Life by Dr. Timir Banerjee

With his father, one uncle, and maternal grandfather all working as doctors in India, Timir Banerjee knew early in life that he was destined for a career in medicine. It is ironic, therefore, that a major theme of The Braying Donkey, Banerjee's loosely organized collection of memoirs and inspirational thoughts, is his lifelong quest for identity and self-fulfillment against the unforgiving forces of social convention, discrimination, and the random circumstances of birth. Born in India, he came to Louisville, Kentucky, as a young hospital intern in the 1960s. The story of his cross-cultural experience is a revealing contrast between the medical practices of his homeland and those of the US, but mostly, it is the unique and inspiring self-portrait of a remarkable individual.
Deeply steeped in the simple wisdom of his father and grandfather, Banerjee offers compelling insights into matters of religion, morality, racism, legal ethics, childhood, fatherhood, friendship, love, sexuality, literature, and more. The still powerful influence of his father and grandfather shows in his touching and detailed portraits of these two mentors. Disaffected by the religion of his homeland, Banerjee finds peace of mind and a strong sense of purpose through Christianity, enabling him to rise above the ugliness of bigotry and to combat conventional notions of success through material gain.

Sights and Sounds of Nepal and Kathmandu Valley by Timir Banerjee

In this combined travelogue and photo journal, retired neurosurgeon Timir Banerjee shares his experiences in the ancient and colorful world of Nepal. Sights and Sounds of Nepal and Kathmandu Valley begins in the exotic city of Kathmandu and ends, after a 150-mile hike through rugged Himalayan foothills, in a remote village near the peak of Mt. Kalapatthar, where Banerjee celebrates his fifty-fifth birthday. Along the way, he shares his humorous and thought-provoking observations of life in Nepal. Not one to leave his "mountaintop experience" unconnected to the rest of the world, he weaves in delightful, inspired references to Hindu mythology, Shakespeare, Nat King Cole and more.
