The 540-page book is a well-researched effort that explores all aspects of the life of eunuchs, such as their history, traditions, festivals celebrated by them, living with Gurus, means of livelihood, prostitution and trade of eunuchs, private gatherings, death rituals, crime and gender sensitivity.
It also details taboo subjects such as ambiguous genitalia, urethra & castration and sex change surgeries.
The book is a treatise on organ-wise cleansing of the body to get rid of accumulated toxins caused by pollution, parasites and unhealthy lifestyle. ‘Cure Yourself’ suggests various natural cleansing therapies, all of which the author Dr Piyush Saxena has tried and tested on himself, his family and friends before recommending them to people for general well-being.
Everything Men Know About Women
Be it Indian mythology or Western philosophy, there is no definitive take on women. Remember ‘Triya charitram, purushashya bhagyam, daivo na jaanaati…’ (Even Gods fail to understand the nature of women…)? ‘What men know about women’ is one such satirical view on what men know about women.
Dr. Piyush Saxena is a qualified naturopath, wellness counselor, activist, writer, film director, actor and magician, besides working as a prominent leader in the corporate world. He is also the founder of ‘Salvation of Oppressed Eunuchs’, a non-governmental organization fighting for the uplift of India’s down-trodden eunuch community.
