Madras has an unique Medical Heritage and History, there seems to be an immediate need to connect this rich past and share it especially at time when the pandemic has been hitting us hard. The book attempts to document frontline workers and selfless doctors of the past, hospitals, medical institutions including pharmacies and much more. The book consisting of 10 Trails also looks back at the many medical firsts of Madras, including the realm of native medicine and not to mention the hidden histories. Being cyclists friendly it contains QR Codes for easy access to all the locations via smart phone interface.
